I have a 2003 Chevy Impala. I ran my car with no oil and now I'm hearing a loud ticking/knocking noise coming from under my valve cover. I added 2 bottles of oil after finding out that I didnt have any...


might be the valves have been damaged running without oil
- or the crankshaft / camshaft / main bearings
most probably you have to let the engine be rebuilt by a mechanic
(expect cost of more than US$ 2.000)
or get another (used) engine at a scrapyard 2003-chevy-wutfveiel3ypko01ydor435x-5-0.jpg 2003-chevy-wutfveiel3ypko01ydor435x-5-2.jpg

Car started noise like nock ing that was from Clutch in AC copmressor


It could be the compressor is going out, or the clutch itself is worn out. If the AC still gets cold, then it is the clutch.

I have a loud knocking in the motor as soon i hit the gas oil is fine


Well, not too many things can make a knocking sound from the engine. Unfortunatly, I would say that it sounds like you have a bad push rod. Did you buy the car new or used. It could have been a problem before you bought it(if it was a used car). There are ways to temp. stop the noise so that someone buying the car won't know there is a problem until later. I would like to know more about the situation so that I can thourghly help you find and fix this problem.

ThenI start my engine it sounds like diesel and no power


how is the oil level and pressure?, how many miles on engine? is this a loud knock or rather a clatter/ticking noise? knock is engine rod or crankshaft bearings, clatter loud ticking is valve follower noise. how long before it (the noise) goes away?
