My 2002 MB C320 is making a clacking sound as soon as the engine is started. The sound goes away after about 2 minutes. What causes this and can I fix this myself?

I had the same problem on my 2002 MB C320. I turns out that there was a recall on the Catilac Converter. I took it to the closest dealer and they replaced it all for free.

Best regards,

Pull valve cover off and look for any bad lifters. Or could be piston rod. Sounds like sticky lifter. Not good.

I have a 86 Nissan 720. Suddenly the engine started overheating after about 15 minutes, and there's a loud clacking under the hood when revving the engine. All fluids etc are fine. Any suggestio


you have a rev limiter on that car. DO NOT OVER REV. the engine. The clacking sound is more then likely your valve tap-its from being over heated. Replace your thermostat and make sure you change your coolant every 2 years. Sounds like your thermostat is stuck open. Replace your thermostat every year or 2.

Have 2002 996 and when I turn off the engine there's a metal clacking sound. Bought the car at 24,000, had a full buyers inspection, warranty inspection and nothing was ever mentioned about it. What do you...


it sounds like your catalitic converters could be cloged, but also exaust sytems do make like a tink tink tink sound cause well, heat causes metal and most things to exspand and when the cool down really fast the contract and will make a litle tink sound.

Theres a strange noise coming from my 99 millenia's motor but seems when i accelerate it the noise goes away but wen idle the cars just clack clack clack even when driving it makes the noise unless you are...


It sounds like you have a valve or rocker issue, I would run an engine cleaner through the engine. I suggest draining 1 quart of oil, pour in the cleaner and run engine for 5 min. Let engine cool and drain the oil. Pretty much another oil change. This will hopefully clean a sticking valve if this is the issue. But I also would check for anything hitting the pulley's or fans that may have came loose. I've seen this a lot. Good Luck. It may take 2 cleanings for the engine, so don't get disappointed.

Clacking on start up


This is valve lifter/follower noise, run a can of engine flush Have the pro's do this) through the engine, then change the oil, it might help, but as long as it goes away quickly it will not cause any harm, just annoying.

2001 Cadillac Deville; noise after the engine starts


The whine sounds like the power steering or the alternator, as far as the idle issue goes try this clean the intake throttle body and idle speed control valve with carb spray, disconnect battery for 5 min. then reconnect and drive a few miles to reset idle strategy. The car will try to die when you spray the intake, hold the idle up to prevent that, use at least 1/2 the can of carb spray.
