I take it that the 'ticking' noise disappears shortly after the engine is started?
Can you identify where the ticking noise is coming from?

There are 2 noises associated with engine wear:
1. A rumble or 'knock' - maybe a 'tapping - ' noise from the bottom of the engine may indicate that the big end bearings are worn. The knock/tapping noise is caused by the worn big end bearings striking the crankshaft. The noise will often disappear after start up because of the oil finding its way into the space between the big end bearing and crankshaft. A rumble/knock/tapping from the bottom of the engine usually indicates a very major repair in the not too distant future..

2. A ticking noise from the top of the engine suggests a worn camshaft/cam followers or cam shells (bearings) .. usually a worn camshaft.

I'm not familiar with your model of vehicle (I'm in the UK). However, I would add that 'big end failure' isn't anywhere near as common as it was way back in the 70s. I would guess that your ticking noise has something to do with the camshaft. Any half-decent workshop would be able to diagnose the problem within a couple of minutes.

It's a relatively quick and easy job to change an overhead camshaft (I'm guessing your vehicle is overhead cam..). You may have to open your wallet and part with some of your hard earned dollars to join the 'replacement camshaft club' .. Worn camshafts aren't too uncommon.

I have a 2005 dodge neon sxt, in the morning when I start it up I hear a loud knocking noise from the engine but after about 15 seconds it gets softer but is still there all day when I'm driving around.


It is probably your lifters sticking. Check your engine oil level and if thats fine, then add some oil detergent/additive that says it will "reduce engine knock and free sticky lifters" run with that additive for a couple hundred miles or until the noise gets better. then replce your oil after that without using the additive

My 2000 Toyota 4runner V6 125k miles automatic transmission started slipping on cold starts especially in the morning. After starting up, putting in drive and pressing the gas pedal first gear doesn't...


Low transmission fluid is usually the only reason power engages late or slippage occurs. But changing the transmission fluid again would not hurt. The stuff really shouldn't deteriorate like engine oil. Be sure to not run the vehicle many miles until the problem is completely resolved < 100 miles. One easy check would be to make sure the transmission lines are well connected and maintain pressure as well as fluid level. The good thing is that Toyota has a reputation of very good transmissions.

So I hadn't changed the oil on my 95 Toyota 4Runner for a while and randomly today I started hearing a very distinct rattling sound coming from the area right behind the throttle. The sound gets worse...


I would change your oil and filter ASAP and hopefully that sound goes away. If you are hearing the ticking around the throttle,chances are it is the lifters getting dry and that is why it's ticking. Do your oil change RIGHT AWAY and then stay current or you motor will be toast if it isn't already.

Good Luck

Which oil is best for my 2007 4runner 35000 miles


Well, I can tell you the grade is 5w-30.

Non-synthetic you need to change the oil every 3,000 miles.

Full synthetic, you can go a little longer on oil changes. Like 4,000 to 5,000. Better for higher demand engines. Like hauling trailers and stuff.

As far as the brand, personally I like Valvoline. Other people have different brands they like. But, that just mine.

Toyota 4Runner/maintenance schedule at 140K miles


The maintenance schedule is an outline and should be followed if you want to keep your vehicle in good condition. the maintenance items listed in the schedule are performed at their set intervals for a reason. Manufacturers have found the wear limits on certain parts and those parts may need to be serviced or replaced at those intervals or catastrophic failures may result.
