After driving my vehicle for 5 km or more a hear a sound coming from the engine sounds more like a knocking sound


There are two kinds of potential noises to be concerned about here. I assume the low oil pressure warning light is not on, or at least you did not mention it. When the engine is at operating temperature and at an idle, you may hear more of a "tick" sound with a frequency of about two or more ticks per second. This is valve train noise from either a mis-adjusted rocker arm or a failing lifter. However if after warm up, the noise is more of a "knock" and occurring at a frequency of half of the rate of a valve tick, or about once per second you have a more serious problem with a main crankshaft bearing or a connecting rod bearing. If this is the case adding oil will not help - the crankshaft is already damaged and the engine will require a complete overhaul.

Drain the oil and check for metallic particles - if present then there has been metal-on-metal contact somewhere in the bottom end and the engine has been damaged.

Why does not start?


I have never heard of an engine noise being described as a tick tack rattling noise. (I assume you mean Tick Tack candy/breathmints?) \

Either way, if it doesnt start, but just makes a rattling/knocking sound, I would ask you did it just quit on you and not restart? Or did it get you where you were going and then would not start when you were ready to leave? If the answer to the first question is yes, then you are likely facing a broken timing belt. The sound you hear are the valves coming into contact with the pistons when you are cranking the starter. This is a bad sound. Lets hope your answer was no to the first and yes to the second. Are you sure have gas? I cannot tell you how many times people have told me "It just won't start!" only to pour a gallon of gas in and varrroooom! What about oil? The tick tack sound just doesn't sound like a healthy engine sound in my head. Do you have oil in the engine? Does somebody hate you enough to drop nuts and bolts into your intake manifold? That would sound like tick tacks. BIG GIANT tick tacks, but tick tacks nonetheless.

I have a 2003 olds bravda.Why do I hear a clicking noise for about 5 seconds after I start my vehicle?


The clicking comes from worn engine parts that haven't gotten enough lubrication. For instance, the valves may be ticking when first started when engine is cold.

First start car ticking noise after 5 minutes it


This is the tappets on the top of the engine ticking cause they havent got any oil yet. When you first start it take a few secs to get the oil to the top of the engine...It is a warning of impending trouble, but it may or may not be quite a ways off...

I have a 2005 dodge neon sxt, in the morning when I start it up I hear a loud knocking noise from the engine but after about 15 seconds it gets softer but is still there all day when I'm driving around.


It is probably your lifters sticking. Check your engine oil level and if thats fine, then add some oil detergent/additive that says it will "reduce engine knock and free sticky lifters" run with that additive for a couple hundred miles or until the noise gets better. then replce your oil after that without using the additive

Ticking noise


usually when there is a ticking noise that changes as the rpm of the engine changes it could be that not all the components in the engine are properly lubricated. you may notice that noise occur temporarily when a car has been sitting for a while and all the oil runs to the bottom of the engine. as soon as the engine is running for a couple of seconds the noise goes away because oil is splashed on all those components. i recommend you check your oil level. i used to have a stealth with an oil leak...and i always knew when the oil was low because i would start to gradually hear the ticking noise. usually and hopefully that's it. it either that or you have bend rods that are slightly tappin on something else in there. but let's be a lil optimistic.

Ticking noise


It is part of the waste gate just above the gas tank. It periodically checks for leaks and pressurizes and releases. Gives a ticking noise when it does this. Not a problem and GM is aware of this and said its normal on our cars.
