Hi, check your oil level. Your lifters are not pumping up. Could be due to lack of oil or possibly worn out lifter. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Car overheats makes a loud clicking sound from under the hood


The loud clicking and/or ticking noises that emanate from an overheated engine is actually the metal parts expanding or contracting due to the heating or cooling down. This is a sure sign of severe overheating.

Under my 2004 dodge grand caravan hood near the tire we hear a ticking noise which goes faster as we drive. Slows down when we slow down. What could it be?


Could be engine related or driveline related. Do you only hear the noise when the car is driving down the road? Or does it also
happen when the engine is running and the vehicle is in park?

There is a loud ticking noise coming from under the hood. it gets louder when i step on the gas


For most vehicles it usually means a lifter out of adjustment, I have actually heard
a timing belt do this as it began to fail (if your vehicle has over 90 thousand miles)
Both items would require a visit to the auto repair shop. I hope this is useful.

97 Merc Grand Marquise just started a loud


If sound comes from under the dash, it might be an hvac actuator that is having a problem? Sometimes you can put your hand on it and feel the vibration? Sometimes with a relay, you can do the same thing.

Clicking/ticking noise under the hood?


It's called a lifter. It is not serious. Keeping your car under good maintenance should keep the noise down but you will always hear it until you get the lifters replaced. Or that is what i was told. I have had my 1988 Fox for ten years now and it has always made that noise. Don't worry. :)
