It sounds like you may be losing a tappet roller. You'll have to pull the tappets out one at a time and check the roller on the end of the tappets.

Good Luck

2005 Cadillac CTS is making loud noise, sounds like it's coming from underneath the car.


-Muffler pipe connector could be loose.
-Could be a "hole"
And depend on how many part need to replace or just tight down.
-It could run from 150-400 (If replace the whole muffler line, it'll
go up to 800)

I have a 81 sportster xls-rode about 60 miles today then it died-check plugs looked ok but spark looked a little weak-put back in and started--drove another couple miles and died agian-this time did not...


Check coil(s), capacitors, Points(if any). Are the Plugs the correct ones for the bike? Replace with new ones and be certain they are correctly gapped. Also, look for an intermittent ground problem, loose wiring, etc.
Good Luck!

1999 suburban lifer noise


if you have a stethascope or even a wood dowel i would check the lifters. if you have higher miles this sounds like a hydraulic lifter pumping up. if you change to a heavier oil it will go away or reduce. thats the cheap fix.

91 previa LE, 205K miles. diving Tucson to St George, UT, 800 pound load. After 3 hours at 65-75 mph, had to slow down as engine was struggling to keep up speed. Stop for gas, and engine was "tapping"...


It is probably a oil pressure problem. If there is some sort of small blockage in an oil journal it could stop oil from flowing to the lifters which would cause the the tapping noise. at this point the best thing to do would be to try and flush out the engine with some sort of desludging agent. One thing i usualy do is drain the oil and re-fill it with atf and run it for about half an hour or an hour and then re-drain and replace with normal engine oil. transmission fluid contains tonnes of detergents and should help clean out any blockages.

Haier wine cooler produces intermittent loud "motor" noises.


Turn the unit around so you can hear the compressor (large black small basketball size unit lower left) if the sound is coming from that then it is probably lost lubrication or just failing. "These usually last forever but.... they do fail. I am not sure if this one (loke mine) has a samll fan. Clarify the noise for use and we can tell you what it is. a constant tapp tap tap fast paced is the compressor going out or out of lub etc. . A ting ting ting may be a fan... Robert-Aptos
