Engine oil is checked with the engine not running and sitting for at least 5 minutes and the oil warm. Transmisson oil should be checked with engine running at idle in park or netural with emergency brake on. If you pull the dip stick out of the transmisson you can read if it is to be checked in park or netural.

Check the engine oil when the engine is off, check the auto transmission fluid when the engine is running.

It is possible that the squeeling you heard was the alternator belt squeeling and belt might have slipped/or broke off. If the alternator belt comes off or slips the electrical system will lose voltage and this can cause weird things to happen on the dash like the engine light coming on and the oil pressure gauge dropping. Inspect the belts for proper tension and wear. It is possible something may have came up from the road and got caught in the belt or alternator housing. Did you ever restart the vehicle? Did the vehicle act normally after?

98 ford escort ticking never loses power nor sluggish.pulled each each sparkplug ticking never stopped.what could it be


You mention a "ticking" sound,,is this from the top or bottom of engine..?

Does the ticking go on acceleration or increase with engine speed..?

A ticking noise from the top usually indicates camshaft/valve noise..

Run your engine until at normal temperature, then turn off and leave for 5 minutes for oil to settle..

Make sure your car is on level ground and check your oil level..wipe dipstick and check it again, make sure you push the dipstick all the way in an re check oil level. Top up if necessary.

The best thing to do is remove old oil filter. Drop the old oil and fit a new filter, top up with new oil, run the car and check oil level again, top up if necessary.

Low oil and old oil can wear thin and cause ticking noise from top of engine, and will also NOT PROTECT your engine...oil is the blood of your car, check levels weekly at most and change every 12 months or as recommended by your car booklet.. Use the BEST oil you can afford.

Bad oil pump ?


Turn your A/C off, the compressor can make noise if bearings are dry or system is low on compressor oil.
Remove your serpentine belt. Turn pulleys by hand to check for roughness. Bearings in those pulleys routinely go bad.
You may get computer warnings with the following test, but with serpentine belt removed, run engine for 2 or 3 minutes. Do this on a warm engine after serpentine belt is removed. The warm oil will not mask the problem like cold thick oil can. Noise generated means problem is internal.
If this is a stick shift transmission sometimes the clutch bearing can make noise and is a sign that bearing is bad.

Is it a squeel or a hum / rumble? 1st run your hands around the tyres especially the inside. Check for hi and low spots on the tyres. If the tyre is hi low hi low hi low it makes a shocking sound. if it is a squeel noise have they checked your brakes cause brakes have squeelers to let you know they need changeing

Engine is heating up. very low idle when stopped. turn on heater makes strange noise and affects the idle of the engine.


This is impossible to tell without seeing the vehicle, but check to be sure your sepentine belt is still intact and turning the alternater and the water pump. I've seen these go out b4, and these symptoms seem consistent with the belt not driving it's components, overheating (the water pump not being turned) and lack of electrical poiwer( the alternater not being turned). Good luck and contact me if you are still having problems. We will try our best to help you solve this!

You might just want to go down to your local autozone and let them do a code check on your car and tell you exactlly why the check engine light is on, it is free and will cost you less in the long run considering that it could be a number of diffrent things causeing this problem!

Hi

Have you checked the power steering belt? it may be loose, sometimes when you turn the wheels the engine will move very slightly and cause the belt to squeel.

Get some wd-40 and spray the belt with the engine running then se if it gets any quieter.

It is quite common from a stand still, also check the power steering fluid.

Regards
Dan

98 lincoln navigator loud noise, shaking, high rpm at idle, drive


I don't know how much oil you had to put in but it sounds like you have maybe more than opne issue and both sound major. One is engine reving and speed not picking up sounds like trans problem. Two the engine shaking and making noise and being run low on oil leans toward possible engine damage. If your mechanicly inclined check all fluids and when checking trans fluid smell it. If it smells burnt the trans has been damaged. Check oil pressure and make sure coolant is full.You may have to take it into the shop.
