Engines will sometimes make a little rod or lifter noise when starting if all oil has drained from either the hydraulic lifter or the crankshaft. If the engine has been running a while and the oil is hot it drains easier from the bearing "journals". Typically, if everything else is ok, that does not turn out to be a problem nor does the engine make any different noise. But once the main and/or rod bearings start to wear, the bearings will "pop" against the crankshaft until oil pressure is built up. It can take a couple seconds and sound quite bad. In fact, it isn't very good for the engine. Next time you change the oil, try a heavier grade oil. If you've been using a 5 W 15, try a 10 W 30. If you've already been using a 10 W 30, try a 15 W 40. That's just the nature of running an older engine that has a little wear on it. It's essential that you keep the oil and filter changed and the oil level up to avoid costly engine damage. I've seen engines go more than 300,00 and 400,000 miles when properly maintained. I've also seen engines fail after 30,000 because the oil was never changed. A little prevention goes a long way with engine maintenance.
one of the following could signal ignition distribution failure>1)misfiring (2) power loss (3) persistent/forced starting (4) rattling/vibrating/shaking (5) gas rich exhaust fumes at exhaust end.Have a keen look at the wires/ignition coils.good luck
Grand ams have all sorts of problems, lol! Are you having problems with the car randomly not starting? Yes the design of the ignition system is notorious for problems, state what the car is (or isn't doing) & can advise further.
Battery, kickstarter, ignition, ignition coil,
Sometime this September.
Sometime in June of 2011
You can test the ignition coil on a car by using a multimeter. A bad ignition coil can be the cause of a car not starting.
Yes, there will be. Starting sometime in 2011.
It is scheduled for sometime in January.
The ignition turns the car's electrical system on or off, in addition to starting the engine.
sometime in the summer, probably in may or June
Work is starting on a replica in China which should be ready sometime in 2018.
you need to re-do the timing of the ignition system. the other possibility is the ignition is worn out and needs to be replaced.
Yes. Starter, fuel, ignition, computer, etc.Yes. Starter, fuel, ignition, computer, etc.
a relay used in the starting of cars..randy niehoff
It is a possibility.
Sometime in June; same as all of the other seasons :)
This makes no sense. What is your question?
starting at the ignition switch going down the steering column. Next is an ignition switch. from there it goes to the selinoid. Inbetween the celinoid and the ignition switch, just above the celinoid is two fusable links.
Physically has a turning problem ? Try your spare key and still has the problem? Replace the ignition switch.
Diesel has highest ignition temperature.. So only diesel cant be used in petrol engine
He will have his own show during prime time starting sometime soon.
