The Vol/C50 has had its engine referred to as the "angry sewing machine" for the valve noise, which is normal. If you do not know if the valves have been adjusted recently, it would be a good idea to do so. Fortunately, a noisy engine may be closer to sped than one that is too quiet- if the exhaust valve are too tight, you can burn one in time. A louder, clunking noise from the lower side case maight indicate and early demise for the cam chain tensioner, which has been a problem for some people. My '05 is right at 32K, with no problems at all.

Have the valves adjusted. A ticking sound on the top end is almost always the valves tapping. I slight ticking sound is normal but if it's been sitting for a while it's good to have them measured anyway.

I am considering buying a Honda 750 Shadow Aero with 18,000 miles. My wife looked at it today and said she thought she heard a knocking sound in the engine. It runs fine and because of hearing problems,...


Knocks, Rattles, Whining, Clunks, and Grinding noises coming from the engine are not good signs.

Light Tapping noise could be a few things.

A dirty oil filter will cause the top end to make tapping sound until the oil warms up and, then the noise goes away, that might be why you didn't hear it, but she did at first.

If the valves/rockers continue to make noise, it probably just needs the valve clearance checked & adjusted. If they continue to make noise after this, then its a sign of wear to one or more of the valve componets.(rockers worn, lifters worn etc)

With only 18000 miles, its probably just dirty oil filter.

Have tapping noise in oil pan area of 2004 5.3l chev silverado owned since new. noise started suddenly. Seems to quieten down some after warmed up. Speeds up with RPM's... opinion on what cause is ? -...


Sounds like a worn big end bearing. Not a disaster as you have caught it early. Drain engine of oil and remove pan. Remove spark plugs and disconnect battery. Undo big ends, fit new bearings, refit the big ends and tighten to specified torque. Might be an idea to also replace main bearings as a preventative measure whilst everything is open. The main journals on the crank are probably fine. Check the journal facings of the removed bearings and determine not only how much wear but the wear type. I would try using 5-40 (or 5 -50) fully synthetic multigrade oil but not change it so frequently (15K is plenty). These oils are thin when cold and help avoid high shear forces within the bearings at cold temperatures whilst keeping a good viscosity at high running temperatures - good for the more mature engine. Because they are fully synthetic they keep their properties for a very long time. Good luck

2004 gmc envoy engine tapping sound, it has plenty of water/antifreeze, and plenty of oil.


We have the same tapping sound on our 2003 Envoy six cylinder engine. I believe the sound is coming from the radiator fan clutch assembly. When the engine reaches its operating temperature and the fan clutch engages, the tapping sound goes away.

I would be looking again at the cam chain tensioner. I have replaced 2 on my 05 so far and it was doing the same thing. the other known problem for noise in the engine like that is the valve guides are know to wear prematurely on 05's and the 03 and 04. Yamaha knows about the problem and will fix it under a one time warranty even if you do not have the extended warranty on the bike. Make sure you talk to the dealer about premature valve guide wear.
