SOURCE: '94 Wrangler has unstable starting issue.. I have

Sounds like you are likely doing the right thing but didn't go far enough. Clean up all the sub-grounds, like the one on the block about 6" to the left of the distributor, the strap between the engine and firewall and any you find on the fenders, especially near the computer.
On all mine, I run a continuous 10gauge ground wire from the battery to all those points and through the firewall to the dash frame. (on boats it's called bonding).
I don't know if it really matters but I have never run into problems created by poor grounding on any Jeep I have including ones I use off-road!
You could try that ...it won't hurt anything and may help you,.

SOURCE: ticking noise from engine

if you've got a few $$ to risk ,try some synthetic oil with new filter ...it often work good for these kind of noise as long as it is not a loud knoking nois ...if it is only a fast clic clic nois it will probably work!

I have a 94 YJ gave me the same issues and I did all you did and more.
Finely I was told that penzoil has a parfin base which lends it self to the cause. I don't know if it is true or not I'm just a shade tree mech. I switched over to full synthetic and WA-LA It took a couple of changes after a good cleaning but I've been TICK free for a over a year now. since I do my own change it helps hold the cost down. I was also told I needed lifters and a rebuild & all that jazz so I figured that if she was gona die I'd deal with that when it happens so far so good.

Loud ticking noise when first staring, engine stalls sometimes when starting it unless I hold the gas pedal down


The TPS would be what I would do had that problem once myself solved the problem. as for the ticking noise sounds like a lifter is bleeding down as long as the noise goes away you will be ok. But may I suggest that if you are going to keep the vehicle for awhile longer you might want to have a set of lifters put in it.

Pound ticking noise when my 99 durango starts goes away after the engine warms up


The ticking noise could be a faulty hydrulic valve lifter. When last was the oil & filter changed, it coul be that the oil is thick and not going through to the lifters and when it warms up the oil is thin. It could be that the engine is need of an overhaul as 148.000 miles is 238.182 Kilometers and that is a hi milage.

My 2000 pontiac sunfire is making a ticking noise from the engine what is it


A ticking noise is normally caused by a lifter. Your car is 11 years old so more than likely is high mileage. There could be some carbon buildup in the lifter or it may just be worn. Purchase a can of Seafoam Motor Treatment at most auto parts stores and walmart. Pour 1.5 ounces of Seafoam for each quart of oil capacity in the crankcase 100 miles before you change your oil & filter. rive that 100 miles, and then change your oil and filter and add Seafoam to the freshly changed oil. Drive the car for 1,000 miles and change the oil & filter again. Repeat the process and then change your oil & filter at 5,000 miles. If you have a sticking liter this will solve the problem. If the lifter is still ticking then it is worn or severely gummed up with carbon. The ticking will do no real harm and is expensive to repair.

Vortec 4.3 Ticking that is present at start-up and speeds up as I accelerate, what would cause this?


If you have good oil pressure, a few things come to mind, first it could be a loose rocker, secound it could be a woren or broken rocker, third it could be a weak or calaps lifter. If it sounds like its lower in the engine like around the oil pan it could be a rod or maine problem. But you say its a ticking noise witch leads me to believe its a valve trane problem.

My 97 plymouth voyager makes a ticking noise when it is cold but when it is warm the ticking noise goes away what would cuase this?


Usually a ticking from the engine is caused by oil not coating the tappets. Tappets are the rods that control the intake and exhaust valves. Once the engine warms up oil is circulated to those parts and the ticking stops.
Mopar is famous for that

if this vehicle has a high millage then you have worn bearing if the oil pressure go's to low then this would be the problem, if not then you should have your lifters replaced but check oil pressure if the noise comes back when the oil pressure drops then you need to over haul your engine. if this information has been useful please let use know good luck

Ticking noise in engine


It sounds like the lifters are still sticking. Change your oil/filter then after 500 miles change it again. Since motor oil has a mild detergents, a couple of changes should hopefully remove any buildup from around the lifters. Do not use "motor flush". Even though your engine is fairly new, it may remove too much buildup and flush it onto your crankshaft bearings. You may try some marvel mystery oil also and I've heard seafoam does a good job, if you can find it. Mine started ticking after using one of the super thick oil additives. I'm still trying to flush that stuff out.
