    Default clatter

    my 99 chrysler 300m is clattering at the top of the engine and has oil.
    dont think it is circulating though. what could be causing this?

    DJ Johnson,

    Consider checking your oil pressure. Refer to Chapter 2 in the part for "General engine overhaul procedures." Look for the section on Oil pressure check. Also, listen to the engine with a mechanic's stethoscope to try to isolate the area where the noise is coming from.

    Good luck with your project.

    Default Same issue with '02 Blazer

    At start-up it clatters like there's no oil getting to 1 rocker. After a few minutes it stops.

    Once, I drove for about 5 minutes before it stopped. During that event, it clattered the whole time it was running, to stop clattering only after I shut down and restarted. What would shutting down do to make it stop upon restart?

    Doesn't do it all the time. The longer it sits without running (at least a couple of days) the better the chance it will do it.

    Oil level is good. Changed oil not long ago. Oil pressure good, although it did seem to fluctuate a tiny bit with the beat of the tapping.

    Any thoughts?
