Question about 2004 Nissan Maxima
Over winter, I noticed a ticking noise in the engine on the first cold start of the day but would go away after 2-3 minutes. Over time it would get louder and last longer. Because oil changes seemed to help, mechanic thought it could be bad oil?? Now, 6 months later, getting louder and occurs on every start cold start. I have110,000 and getting plugs changed. Any suggestions for mechanic to look for?
Well my friend....i had the exact same problem in my 2006 HUMMER H3....thought it was a lifter on cold starts but it is not....its the exhaust manifold...it has a leak or cracked...either way, your gona have spend money to fix it...i am paying close to 1200 for this repair in the next few days....it will only get worse and your back presure will be affected thus your fuel milage will be real bad and getting worse...i too thought it was a lifter...but the shop has cleared that right up...not a lifter but a exhaust mmanifold
