Q: Car making ticking or knocking noise

asked by on

The car is making a loud ticking/knocking noise.

A: Hi. Most of the time a ticking or knocking ...

Hi. Most of the time a ticking or knocking noise coming from this engine is not a good thing. You should check the oil. If you need assistance on how to check your oil, take a look at this article. If it is low then this can occur. If it is old and dirty, then it should be changed as that can cause engine noise. If the oil is fairly fresh, then the problem may be a failing timing chain or even a rod bearing that is failing. The timing chain is a common failure for this engine. A mechanic would need to pinpoint the area of the engine that the noise is coming from. If it's coming from the engine, then it is the timing chain. I would enlist the help of a certified mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, to inspect the engine noise and replace any damaged parts.
