Replaced head gasket, timing belt, and water pump about 3 months ago. I also switched to synthetic oil around the same time. I've been having a ticking sound for a little bit now, but as of recently I've been getting this squeaking, squealing noise and the knocking as well. I'm thinking valves. Anyone have any ideas?

Chevy Vortec lifter & valve tap how to repair it
this video has info on how to fix a severe valve tap or sticky lifter using
1 quart of automatic transmission fluid with 4 quarts of oil. the trans
fluid is a high detergent that loosens up sludge build up in a motor from
lack of oil changes, you will be amazed at what pouring 1 quart of trans
fluid in a neglected motor can do. the truck in this video got a double
treatment and now runs smooth with no taps and the check engine light went
out as soon as I started it. also after the second treatment I changed the
oil & filter and the clumps of sludge that were left in it broke down into
the oil from the trans fluid and it flushed it out. I
I realize I bash fram oil filters in this video and any filter wouldnt have
helped in this case because the truck was so neglected any filter would
have pluged up. howerver,,, Fram in my opinion is cheap crap.and over the
years of having hundreads of cars I can honestly say if you have 2
identical engines 1 using Fram the other using Wix or Napa the Fram motor
will die prematurely due to lack of filtering.
Subaru Head gasket installation instructions
Get a torque wrench on Amazon
Subaru Head gasket installation instructions for putting your new head
gaskets on. Another thing people will usually replace at the same time is
the head bolts. I recommend doing this if there has been severe warping of
the heads due to severe overheating. Often times the original lead based
gasket fails due to age/heat cycles/expansion and the bolts are fine. In
this case it's fine to clean the old ones with a wire brush and dip the
tips in motor oil and re use them.

5th Gen Honda Prelude Whining Noise, Oil pump?
My 98 Honda Prelude...
My car started to give me the Oil Flickering Light Every time I would come
to a stop sign or stop light or while idle. Revving the engine made the
light go away but as soon as i came to a stop it flickered back on rapidly.
The oil while fine on the dip stick....
i changed oil to make sure of everything, even filter.
Problem got worse, after a day the light came back flickering but it
brought along a hard whining noise that you hear now in this video
COULD IT BE THE OIL PUMP GIVING OUT????
The Noise is not coming from any Power Steering, Any Pully, Timing Belt or
Belt Tension. I Jacked up the car And Started hearing the noise coming
within the Oil Pan! WTF!
What do you guys think it is at your 100% positivity.
Oil Pump Goes For nearly 200 bills, so before buying something that it
could't be I'd like your Opinions. TY!

98 Honda Prelude H22a4 Head Gasket Replacement PT1
I just bought this car fairly cheap. It had dropped a valve in cyl #4,
damaged the original head, and piston. I replaced the head and piston. The
car ran good for a few days, and then it blew the head gasket. I originally
used a cheap JIS head gasket. This time around I used a Fel-Pro head
gasket. I had to have the head rechecked, and machined. Everything checked

This started after sitting for the weekend and starting it up again on

***Update*** Problem solved. I just had to adjust my Fast Idle Thermo
Valve(FITV). Car idle near perfect now!
When my car is cold it tends to Idle like this. I have my suspicions, but
I'm not sure what the problem is.

Again I have a noise coming from my timing belt. Just had it changed and
its making a kind of "whooping" noise which doesn't sound great. I'm
wondering if perhaps it's too tight?
