#30 of 33 2007 Tib GT tapping engine can't stand cold?
Jan 02, 2012 (3:55 pm)
I own a 2007 Tiburon GT 57k on engine. I've never had a problem with this car until very recently. I bought it in july and it runs like a dream. This winter it has sat a lot more since I drive a SUV for winter months. I start it twice a week to keep it warmed up though. The last time I went out to start it, I noticed a tapping sound like the oil hadn't made it up to the top yet so i just let it run hoping the sound would go away but it hasn't. I left it running for over ten minutes today in my driveway and it showed no signs of stopping the tap noise. I'm pissed off and I have no idea why its doing this now. My question is, i have a 5 year 60k warranty. Is it too late to take it in to hyundai under warranty? I don't see an owners manual in the car so I'm not sure when it was manufactured but I know I have kept up with maintenance. Any ideas?

Try putting some Motor Flush by Gunk in the engine right before your next oil change. I use it about every third oil change in all my cars. It saved me from having to overhaul an engine once about 30 years ago so I know it works.
