    Have you checked the engine oil level. When is the last time the oil has been changed?

Sounds like your oil is draining back out of the lifters or your oil is to thick.

What will be the problem if i have a taping noise when i start my car until it gets warm mitsubishi 380


A tapping noise that starts out cold and goes away when warm is usually caused by a valve lifter inside the engine. The lifter may be worn/leaking down and will be noisy until it fills with oil pressure. You can try an oil additive ( Lucas Oil Additive ) available at most part stores works very well with noisy lifters. Another noise that can happen cold and go away when warm is an exhaust manifold leak. However, this is normally a ticking type sound rather than a tapping sound.

Under load, accelerating there is high pitched not very load ticking or tappety noise. The noise decreases in intensity as load decreases.


Could be pinging (engine knock) engine running lean. Check fuel pressure and inlet manifold for leaks.

Mitsubishi l200 2.5 did 08 very noisy engine, sounds very tappety is this normal ?


It may be worn out valve lifters that are inside the engine. If you have more than 6,000 miles on the oil, valve lifters could run noisier. Changing to a high mileage type of motor oil may quite down the valve lifters noise somewhat. Synthetic oil used during the summer months could make it noisier too. If you can hear the noise while driving the car, it is not normal. Upon acceleration, if it gets noisier, you will be needing a valve job in the not to distant future.

Noisy engine when cold


Sounds like low oil pressure, there should be a check ball valve in the pump it may be stuck in the open position or the spring that holds it may be weak. Try 20/50 Castrol GTX and a quart of slick 50 with a new oil filter. If it still makes noise when cold it will be time for an engine rebuild in the near future.

L hear a sound like that 'gyeeeee' to start cold engine. But l can't hear that noise to start warm engine.


Check your power steering fluid level. Some of them get noisy on cold start up when they are low on fluid.

2001 Buick Lesabre lifters noisy


Have you tried flushing the engine crank case? You may have sludge clogging the valve lifter oil pressure ports. Get a can of Berrymans brand Chemtool, add it to a cold engine crankcase oil and run it for 5 miles or so, then change the oil and see if the noise level improves. Some tapping noise on cold start is normal and not a sign of any problem. If the noise goes away in my opinion I'd just do the flush of the system and then leave it alone.

A loud tappety knocking sound is heard from the rocker cover area at a cold start up. The noise goes after about 5 minutes (or less) running time. Then sounds perfectly normal after that. Oil life is 50%...


Sounds as if you have a valve lifter that is leaking down while sitting,pumps back up after running a while. This would be a job that a mechanic should do , unless of course you have done something similiar in the past
