When does it make a tapping noise? When your !) braking and turning wheel B) braking c) engine idling D) starting engine E) turning. I mean it just all depends....
The loud tapping sound can be caused by a complete heating of the engine. Worn tappets can also cause the tapping sound.
Not to worry it is the valves in the engine tapping because there is not enough oil pressure yet for the fluid lifters to take up the slack in the valve train, that is why it goes away after a few minutes and also why you should always let your engine warm up before driving. a rod nock
A tapping noise might come into the engine because of heat damage to the lifters of the motor. You might also hear a tapping sound if the engine has been damaged due to a blown head gasket.
The soleonoid on the starter is bad. When you buy a new starter it comes with the solenoid. Try tapping on the starter with a hammer if it starts after that then this is your problem
Tapping in a diesel engine often means a valve lifter is beginning to fail. It can also mean that sub quality fuel is being used.
Honda cars are designed to do this. When the engine is warm the fan will run up to 15 min. after turning the engine off.
The alternator is run by a belt connected to the engine. When the engine is running the alternator is turning. The alternator is what produces the electrical current that charges the battery & powers everything electrical while the engine is running. the battery is mainly to start the engine.
possibly low oil or low oil pressure, the tapping may be coming from the oil operated hydraulic lifters.
If they stay on for a few minutes before turning off, it is a safety feature that many newer model vehicles have. It's to give you light for a few moments in order to get from your car to your doorstep (assuming it's dark). Usually, if you turn off the lights before turning off the engine, the lights will turn off immediately, and if you turn off the engine before turning off the lights, they will stay on to light your way for a few minutes. If your headlights are not turning off at all, your problem is probably either a faulty headlight switch, or a faulty headlight relay.
A good rule of thumb is that it takes as much gas to start your car as it does for the car to run for 3 minutes, in addition your engine takes the most damage from being started as opposed to running continuously. So you should make sure that you're going to be staying where you are for awhile (probably about 5 minutes+) before turning your engine off is actually a good idea.
No. It should only spark with the engine turning over.
Disconnect the negative battery cable for a couple of minutes, then reconnect. The CHECK ENGINE light should disappear if everything is okay.
I'd give everything a look before you start the engine and after, leave the engine for a few minutes before you start driving but it should be fine.
Stuck hydraulic lifter.
hydraulic lifter? Rocker arm?
Nothing realy.. with the choke on the engine receives more fuel making it easier to run with a cold motor. after starting the engine, wait about two minutes before turning it off.
after market oil filter have been known to cause engine noises in kia's
Try going to a LIGHTER weight of engine oil. That should solve it.
The oil pump is driven by the distributor shaft, so it's turning whenever the engine is turning.
It could be a multitude of things but is probably the valvetrain tapping. It could be a multitude of things but is probably the valvetrain tapping.
You may have an exhaust leak very close to the engine.
The noise has been coming from the engine for the past week and I have been told it might be the oil pump not providing oil to the sump. The tapping sound comes from the engine and increases when i change into a higher gear and drive faster. Please help!
piston tapping, change your oil from 10 30 w to 5 30 w, that fixed my tapping sound. when the engine warms up it goes away?
