Knocking noise when cold but after it warms up it goes away on a 2001 blazer can it be the water pump because i some problem with that as well.?

It is possible that the bearings are going bad on the water pump but you are going to have to listen to where the noise is coming from, whether it is inside the engine ( rod knock or oil pressure issues ) or outside (pump bearings or pulley issues).I lean toward internal wear or damage to the engine since the noise goes away when it warms up which indicates that when good oil circulation is present the problem goes away, bad bearings in a water pump will always make noise until they are repaired.

Why fuel consumption of impala 2004 depends on the season?

Cold air is more dense air so for a given volume of air more fuel will be used. Also, when the engine is cold it tends to run richer (more fuel) and higher idle until it warms up.


What could be the cause of a ticking sound at startup on a 97 Plymouth Grand Voyager if the sound goes away after the engine warms up?

If the noise on occurs after the vehicle has sat for a while, it could be a hydralic valve lifter bleeding off. They tend to click for a while until the oil pushes all of tha air out. Maybe go to a lighter weight of oil. BG makes a product called MOA that has helped ease the clicking noise in vehicles I have worked on in the past. Take it easy until it warms up and even clicking it should last for a whole lot more miles!

99 Tahoe and you have a knocking noise that last for about a 2 minutes or until your truck warms up What is this?

Chev has a law suit on their small blocks from piston slap. Take your vehicle to a real DEALER and have them check the recal against your VIN #. This is a big problem for Chevy... the pistons are cam ground (not round) and expand to a circle in the bore as she warms up. The noise I suspect you are hearing is the famous piston slap that these units are getting known for. Go on some Cheby forums and I am sure you will find discussions on this issue. Hope that helps you --

Why does the engine knock with a cold start but stops when it warms up?

Often a knock when cold is caused by piston slap, which is pistons rocking in the cylinders until they expand in size when the engine warms up.

What causes a GMC Envoy to make a pinging noise?

Low Octane fuel will cause pinging. It should not last for more than a few seconds then the Knock sensors should signal the PCM to retard timing. You should ensure that you use ONLY "top tier" Gasolines. If it continues to ping then you must use a higher Octane fuel. Please be aware that Top Tier and higher octane are two different concepts. If it still continues to ping (for more than a few seconds) then you must take it in and find out why the knock sensors are not working. The other noise that happens on cold starts is a diesel sound and should go away after the engine warms up. Early 2002 Models have a TSB that refers to this and sleeve failure.

Is it common to hear lifter noise?

Yes, especially on cars with high mileage. I have a 90 Acura Legend (made by Honda) with 145,000 miles and it does this too. As the car warms up, the ticking noise decreases or goes away. I've gotten use to it and ignore it.
