Engine Making a Clicking Noise

If your engine is making a clicking noise, there could be a few culprits. The louder the noise, the sooner you should bring your car into Reis Automotive to diagnose the problem. But don’t be fooled – the severity of the noise does not always directly relate to the seriousness of the problem.

Common Causes of an Engine Clicking

Valve Train: the valve train controls the operation of the valves in your engine. This controls air and fuel flow in and out of the cylinders – facilitating combustion. If left untreated, the broken valves can fall into your engine cylinders, causing total engine failure.

Inspection and Diagnosis Cost: High, depending on the extent of damage

Serpentine Belt Problems: The serpentine belt drives multiple functions in your engine, including the alternator, power steering pump, water pump, AC compressor and the air pump. It’s critical to replace a bad serpentine belt, or you run the risk of damaging your engine beyond repair.

Inspection and Diagnosis Cost: Minimal
