Question about Acura SLX

1 Answer

1998 Isuzu 3.5L trooper engine (in 1998 Acura SLX). Old engine had noise. New engine has same noise. Every mechanic with an opinion says that something is not right, but nobody has a tried & true solution. New engine runs fine after about 50k miles, but lifter noise still exists. Would really like to have a quieter engine solution.

What has happened on some of them is the hydraulic tensioner on the timing belt goes out, when the engine is running the belt bounces nicely to the rhythm of the engine causing a knock. Take a peek in the timing cover and make sure the timing belt is tight on the tensioner side.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: where is my oil pump

The oil pump is in the oil pan. the lifters will continue to tick until they are properly oiled. Be careful not to use to thick of oil as this will only make the pump work harder and could further damage your engine.

Engine noise 1994 isuzu trooper 171000 miles


Engine noises can be caused by any of the moving components of the engine. Since we are talking about a 17-year-old vehicle with 171,000 miles, your guess is as good as anybody's. I would recommend having a professional mechanic listen to it and give you some idea of what is causing the noise.

I have an 1998 acura slx. It will not start after replacing the old battery? All it does is click when I turn it over?


Check connections to make sure they are free of corrosion and tight, including connection at starter. If all connections are tight and clean, check the battery. Even if it's new, there is a chance you purchased a defective one. You can bring it to a parts store for a free check. If it checks out ok, you may have a starter problem. Pull it, and again, bring to the parts store, they can check its' condition off the vehicle to see if it's operating properly,
