If your oil level is where it should be and If it just for a short time yes, because the oil has not reached the top of the engine from the sump thus causing the noise due to lack of lubrication... It should go away in a matter of a few seconds as soon as there is oil flowing over the valve train and chains. If it is lasting more like a minute i would get concerned something is blocking the oil pick up tube or the oil pump is faulty and oil is not getting up as fast as it should. Just about all cars make a short ticking noise in the begginig especially if they are high on miles... The joy of hydraulic lifters! As it's a 2002 model it has probably been serviced using synthetic oils. If it's done over 60K miles it's probably worth getting an engine flush at the next service. Over time the lifters get 'sticky'. It is good for freeing the sediments from the oil galleries and bearing surfaces too.

That slight ticking sound is probably the injectors firing which is normal.

If the ticking sounds like a "normal" ticking, it is probably the fuel injectors.

The tinking sound if it is a light sound is probably the fuel injectors working which is normal but I would check the oil level and make sure it is full first it could be lifters ticking or clattering.

A normal ticking is the fuel injectors opening and closing, a very loud ticking with bad mileage and poor performance may be a sticky lifter, aka hydraulic valve lash adjuster. If the latter try something like Marvel's Mystery Oil or another sticky lifter nostrum before launching into a difficuly and expensive replacement.

It is normal in cold weather, it's just the knock sensors. If however, it still ticks after engine is warmed up, e.g after driving for 20-25 minutes, get someone to look at it.

The check engine light is not related to the oil or the transmission fluid systems. It is related to fuel control, computer, emmissions control systems. The faint ticking you hear may just be the normal noise coming from the fuel injectors. All fuel injectors make some kind of ticking noise while they operate. I would say, if the check engine light has anything to do with the services performed, it would almost have to be a simple connector that may have been unplugged to move a wire out of the way, and then forgotten. Otherwise, I believe it would have to be a coincidence. Even if the ticking noise is a lifter in te engine, that still would not cause a check engine, and would not be the fault of someone changing the oil, as long as the oil is full.

Jaguars can have 1 but the normal is 4.

It is normal for a carburetor to "suck air" when you are starting the engine or while the engine is running. You should stop the engine before repairing the carburetor for safety reasons.

It could be a sticking valve lifter. If you didn't hear it before, it should be investigated. Ticking is not normal.

In a normal engine, no. In a high performance engine, maybe.In a normal engine, no. In a high performance engine, maybe.

The normal body temperature of a jaguar is around 94.8 degrees Fahrenheit or 34.8888 ยบC degrees celsius

The normal engine operating temperature, for a 3306 Caterpillar diesel engine, is 180 degrees. The engine should not be operated at temperatures above 200 degrees.

User Avatar

Yes it is normal if you have an electric fan. The fan will run until the engine temp lowers to normal.

1) normal operation when cold or 2) vacuum leak cause by shrunken gasket

User Avatar

normal on the front face of the engine or the right hand side of the engine

User Avatar

You may be hearing the vacuum pump near the driver side fender...which is normal

its normal for the ck engine light to be on during this time as it is running it engine cks

its normal ,when u have lots of miles-your values are very worn, ( if ) u have alot of miles on it, if so try some stp oil treatment, once a week., if not, then u have a bad engine, take to a engine repair shop, to be checked out. I replaced my passenger side exhaust gasket when it blew because of a warped exhaust manifold which broke the bolt closest to the fire wall. The center port is higher than either end. Needs to be milled or filed and a new gasket re-installed. When I did that, my ticking sound went away.i used the "mystery oil" and worked pretty good.

Yes it is normal. That is the temperature that the engine was designed to operate.

Black jaguars are nothing more than a color variation. If they were to live in a denser, darker area of the rainforest, their color would equip them to survive longer, but as far as being stronger than a "normal" jaguar, no.

Oil pressure has to built up. As long as the pressure is normal and the oil level is good. There is no problem.

The "tick" of the engine is caused by the pre-ignition in the chamber before it reaches the spark plug. Because the gas is combusting before it reaches the spark plugs, this is causing the "tick" noise. Recommend using a higher grade of fuel "mid-grade" Have you checked your oil lately? If not check it and if it is low add more and the ticking should go away. are you sure you are not hearing the normal noise of the fuel injectos doing their job? a properly-working fuel injector will make a clicking noise. Some times you can hear it while driving in a quiet place, or when the engine is running and you are under the hood. THAT is a normal sound. http://www.autozone.com/servlet/UiBroker?UseCase=S001&UserAction=viewSimpleDiagInfo&Parameters=info answer not pre-ignition. ticking sound is more likely to be a small exhaust manifold leak. or a sticky hydraulic lifter, an engine flush and oil change will fix it ANSWER FROM DAN the ticking noise may be your lifters if you put new oil in and the ticking does not go away try tightening your lifters. you may want to take the car to a garage because you could wreck more than help if you over tighten. or don't fit gasket correctly.
