Could be chain slack until it warms up. Check your tensioner, and possibly needs valve adjustment if it hasn't been done. On a worse note, could be oil pump taking time to get oil to the top end.

Truck run fine / started it in the am it had top end noise// oil is ok / i took oil filter of and cut it open // filter looks clogged i put a new filer and oil in and it still has top end noise when warm...


Sounds to me like the cam bearings are gone as that is where you get your oil pressure . most of those have to be pressed in after the motor is pulled out and tore down and going that deep i would go ahead and rebuild the whole motor while you have it out.

Ticking noise in engine .louder when warm.is it the cam chain


A ticking sound that gets louder as the engine warms up usually is an indication of the valves need adjustment. The clearance between the valve stem and the tappet on the rocker arm will get larger over time and needs a periodic adjustment. The cam chain can make noise as well, but "usually" more of a continuous noise that will change with rpm's (may quieten when accelarating/deccelerating). If it is the valve clearance, it is not an immediate concern, but should be adjusted to prevent unnecessary wear on the tappet/stem. Another way to tell is if it quitens somewhat with an oil change. Newer oil will provide more of a dampening effect on the contact between the stem and tappen, thus reducing the noise.

I have a 1993 saturn SL2 1.9L dohc engine and at certain rpm it makes a click sounding like it is coming from front of engine i think its timing chain tensioner any ideas?


I do not know what your mileage is but if you are over 110,000 in a DOHC then a cam chain is in order unless it has already been done. when you do it get a kit as the are guides, sprockets, and a tensioner needed as well. when you are putting it back together do the serpentine belt tensioner and the dog bone motor mounts. generally a cam chain sounds more like loud whirr than click. sticky valves click, but that generally goes away as the engine warms up. a/c clutch could make a click cutting in and out if the system is dry and there is nothing to compress. have you tried this in park with the hood open and someone else hitting the gas pedal to hit the magic rpm? you might see something attending the click or get some better idea as to exact location.

When warm i notice a cam chain type noise. could this be a worn cam chain tensioner . the bike has covered 36000 miles


it can either be a worn tensioner or need for a valve adjustment. if you rev the engine and noise goes away, you need a new cam chain tensioner. if the noise remains or gets worse when you rev it up, you need a valve adjustment and should replac the tensioner anyway. 36,000 miles on the motor is definitely mileage for an adjustment if it's never had one.

Growling engine noise only at idle. Cam area


Take all of the belts off for a short run at idle. If the sound goes away it is pulley related, spin each pulley and listen for bearing noise, also check for play at this time.

If the noise does not go away when the motor is driving no accessories you have a more serious problem.
