I have a constant clicking sound under the hood and low oil pressure light on.I was told the intake manifold gaskets need to be replaced. Is there anything else I could check for? But I recently was driving and the car slowed down by itself. Went home n parked it now it won't move when I shift into reverse please help.
It's really difficult to identify noises from just a description because there are tons of moving parts that have the potential to create a clicking noise.
If the oil pressure light is coming on first check the engine oil level, If it is good then you need to attach a oil pressure tester to see if the oil pump is creating pressure because if its not pumping engine oil through the engine then sever engine damage will result (no oil pressure will also cause clicking, clacking noises).
These engines have a history of lower intake gaskets leaking coolant into the engine oil or vise versa (or both). Signs is oil or coolant at the lower gasket area or coolant in the engine oil or muddy or milky colors in the coolant.
Have you check the automatic transmission fluid level ( do this check with the engine running and the vehicle on a flat level surface). Make sure the transmission fluid level is good and the fluid condition is red not black or milky in appearance.
Thanks for the question
