What is wrong if your Impala LS 2004 3.8 ltr engine makes loud ticking noise when cold?
Of course a 11 year old car is not still under warranty. The noise you are hearing is the lifters starving for oil at startup. Change the oil and filter and make sure you are using the correct weight and a quality filter. Add 1 can of Seafoam which you can buy at most Auto Parts stores to the engine oil. Drive the car 1,000 miles and change the oil again. Add another can of Seafoam to the engine oil. This may help clean and quieten the lifters. If the noise you hear is more of a knock than a tick you may have a worn crankshaft bearing. The only cure for that is a complete engine overhaul.
take it back to the dealer it should be under warrenty still.
What would cause an 1989 Firebird 305 TBI engine to make a ticking sound after going through some water?
Try to locate the ticking noise. Is it the engine? Is it ticking when you are driving? When you are sitting still? It could be as simple as a stone stuck in yoru tire, everytime it hits the road it ticks. it could be a lifter in the engine. Try to be more specific as to where and when the ticking happens.
1994 Plymouth voyager makes a ticking noise from the time it starts until you turn it off What is the problem and how can you fix it?
If your 2001 Sunfire makes a ticking noise all the time but has been ticking and otherwise running fine for over a year is it a gasket head If so what is the best solution; let engine blow replace?
No! ticking noise is usually lifter noise. your engine is fine.(to a point) try changing your oil put in a thicker oil to prevent metal to metal contact. go for a 15/40 20/50. let it run for a while(few miles), if it doesn't stop buy an additive called "engine lucas", that will dilute your oil just enough to allow it to lubricate your lifters. also when your oil level drops or your oil becomes dirty…
Hi i have a subaru legacy 1996. It has startd making a ticking noise when it starts in the morning.IT eventually fades as the engine warms up.But i have been told i may need a new engine Help?
Ticking is not that that big of a deal to require a new engine. If your engine is knocking, it is a big deal. Make sure your car is ticking first. Ticking is usually caused by the valvetrain of the engine when it is not properly lubricated. As the engine increases oil pressure the oil makes its way into the valvetrain and the sound should go away. If it goes away when the engine is…
Engine temp is low 140 degrees and a ticking noise is coming from the upper part of the engine What is wrong?
"Engine temp is low 140 degrees" Bad Thermostat (stuck open) "a ticking noise is coming from the upper part of the engine" Lifters Make a ticking noise, To stop that there are these bags that fill with oil. If you run low on oil the bags don't inflate at you get a clicking. Check you oil level!!! The bags could be bad, the oil supply could be clogged, or something else could be wrong.
83 Caprice Classic Engine makes a ticking-knocking noise - Does it both in park while moving - speed increase with the motor.?
The check engine light is on in your 1998 Ford Explorer there is a faint ticking and noise coming from the engine what is it The oil and transmission fluid was just changed before the light came on?
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…
It could be one of the injector fire seals. There is a forum post dedicated to the Citroen C3 injector fire seals here: http://citroenc3owners.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=12 and a youtube video demonstrating the sound of a leaking fire seal (ticking or chuffing sound) here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UgZ-B0Ccafg or, it could be the crank pulley. There is a video of the sound a worn crank pulley makes and information about the parts required to fix it at http://citroenc3owners.com/diesel-citroen-c3/citroen-c3-2002-1-4-hdi-engine-makes-loud-ticking-noise-t290.html
My 2000 buick century has always had a ticking noise that disappeared after it warmed up but lately it has increased to a noisy rattle its a v6 with 130000 klicks?
Your turn signal lights are not working but makes a buzzing noise when engaged the light comes on on the panel and on the vehicle but no flashing you have a 2000 Chevy Impala?
ADDED: I would suspect that the flasher unit might be faulty. It's that little 'can-like' looking thing that gives the 'ticking' sound when the bulb blinks. Good luck. We have had the same problem on a 2000 Chevy impala. We have replaced the hazzard switch. That did not help. We are clueless too. xxlilachickxx@AOL.com
If the ticking is coming from the top of the engine it is likely the Hydraulic (valve) Lash Adjusters. A fresh oil change using a quality oil and ***an OEM filter from the dealership*** should clear the noise up within 15 minutes of driving. Use of a non-OEM filter can cause valve train ticking noise.
