Could be dry valve gear, put stethoscope or plastic handled screwdriver to motor and have someone start for you from cold and see if noise at top or bottom of motor.
If top valve gear if bottom insufficient oil to bearings and pistons. Check quality and amount of engine oil and oil filter change periods

SOURCE: Engine don't start and have a clicking sound

you should check and see the batttery smart visor indicator (if applicable - see owners manual)
this may be that the battery has been drained and does not have enough power to rotate the starter. lights, dashboard, instruments light up ok as the voltage is there but the power (amperage) is low. please refer to owners manual on how to recharge your battery. bare in mind that removing the baterry from the care will reset systems (audio, alarm) and you wil need to recode them by using the codes provided with the car.

SOURCE: surging and loud whistling noise

Sounds like a vacuum leak. Check all vacuum hoses on the intake, throttle body, etc. Sounds like one cracked or came off. Post back if you have any questions. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: rattling noise during engine start up.. 2005 mitz galant 2.4l

Probably a heat shield. Often time the screws that hold the shields in place rust away causing the shield to rattle. After the exhaust heats up, the pipes and shield expand causing the shield to stop rattling until it cools down again later when the car has been sitting for a while. Usually you'll find shields under or around the catalytic converter and around the exhaust pipe nearest to the engine. Most folks would probably recommend you remove the shield and be done with it. That's your call. Just remember though, the shields are there for a reason. In particular, the shield under the catalytic converter is there to prevent the possibility of starting tall grass on fire in the event you had to pull off the road for example to fix a flat tire or something along those lines. It might be unlikely, but its definitely been known to happen. Let us know how it goes. Thanks.

IT may start if it is not seized after you add oil but if it is making a noise it will be bearing damage and failure will be very close. Get a second opinion as engines are expensive.

Citroen c3 error code a17


Hello
The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

I have a 2006 Honda Accord....its been very cold outside and every morning i turn on the car and i hear a noise..not sure if its coming from the engine...but it goes away after I start driving and the...


When is really cold, and vehicles with non electrical power steering start for the first time after a good period of inactivity the power steering pump tents to wine, that is normal, some other cars or almost all the cars when they pass 100.000 miles develop a little metallic noise that goes away when the oil pump distributes and lubricates all moving parts inside the engine when the car starts first thing in the morning in a really cold morning.

Whenever I drive over bumps it makes noises sounds


It could be your stabilizer bar end link. There common to make noise when the bushings wear out, inspect the end links and replace if needed. You can pick up a up graded end link with urethane bushings that last a life time of the car. They go for around $34.00 for both sides at Part Source. Good luck and keep me posted.
