Exclamation 04 murano clicking noise

Hey! I just joined today to try and get some advice! I have a 2004 nissan murano with 187,000! Miles on it. The engine has been making a clicking sound when i first start it up and when i accelerate. The oil light came on but i just had it changed a couple months ago; it is not low at all and the oil is not black. Last friday the clicking sound got louder and the car sputtered a couple of times and almost died. I havent turned it on since then because i have to find a new mechanic.

Please help! What do you think is going on? Timing chain?

Thanks in advance!!!

I have 252,000 on my MO and my independent Nissan mechanic told me that it has a noisy timing chain also. He did not recommend going into it with this kind of mileage and other issues.

Did the engine throw a code? If so, post it here.

Re: 04 murano clicking noise

Those are the idiot lights. I am looking for the error codes. Did you pull any?

take it to autozone and have them scan it. It's probably not the oil level, but the pressure. Low oil pressure will trigger that light as well. I would also recommend checking the oil level to make sure its properly filled. Not every oil change place does a good job... always double check their work. Especially if they were busy or didn't cycle the engine after filling.

The ticking is likely coming from the valve train not being properly lubed, or the cylinders themselves due to improper oil flow from the oil squirters.
