Noisy engine What causes the ticking on my 2002 dodge Dakota. Oil was like tar and I drained it all out and changed it. A little better but still noisy and it is noisier the more I press the gas.

You should take one quart of oil out and put in 1 qt of diesel fuel and run it for 15 minutes. Drain it all out and change the oil filter. Put new oil and filter back in. It is hard to tell if the noise is from the valve lifters or the crank. If it is valves, you may be able to adjust them if they are not hydraulic.

    Did that but noise is still there seems that It may be a little less but still noisy.

    It could come down to excess wear now. As long as there is just a slight ticking sound it should be ok.

Makes like a ticking or light knocking noise at start up, whether it's hot or cold outside. I usually let the truck idle for a while and it goes away.


Usually a sign of needing an oil change. My Dodge Dakota does the same thing, when I change the oil it goes away. Every couple of oil changes I use kerosene to clean out the gunk, just put kerosene in place of the oil, let the motor run for a minute then drain, replace the oil filter, and fill with oil, then you're good to go.

Ticking in engine after oil change


this ticking problem is probably your hydraulic lifters, when the oil is drained they also drained and they sometimes take a while to bleed so they may be noisy... the noise should be coming from the top of the engine...

I would just check that you put in the right oil aswell just incase, if the oil was to thin it may be a little noisy.. its definately a good idea to make sure the right oil was put in (e.g. 40w-50) < this is the viscosity of the oil and to find out just ask someone in you auto parts store what oil a 92 geo storm should take...

but if the noise goes away after a drive then it was just the lifters and is not a big prob

Low psi and knock at start up 2002 dodge dakata 125,000 miles, check engine light on


sounds like you have failed rod or crank bearing, this is causing the loss of oil pressure.

2001 Dodge Dakota 3.9L oil pressure


The pickup tube is a bad design in these engines, I have fixed several with the same problem, you can weld on a GM screen move it 1/4 of a inch away from the pan or add 1 inch to the bottom of the pan, (use a high volume pump) the problem is the screen is too close and too small and will pick up any sludge off the bottom. also it's great to make a access plate on the bottom of the pan using a Volkswagen Bug oil cover plate, it can be removed with bolts after a oil drain to clean the screen without the hassle of removing the whole oil pan by lifting the engine on these trucks. Good Luck

Knocking under valve cover on cold starts


Is there any smoke when you first start it? what is happening is the valve seals are probably worn and letting the oil seep past them. when your engine is first started it has no oil or very little oil at the top of the engine, thus causing the knocking noise. could be more but this is a most likely answer. oh and is you haven't changed your oil every 3,000 miles you had beeter start doing it.... answer knocking sounds usually come from bottom of engine try a better quality and correct viscosity oil
