What your actually hearing are the camshaft lifters. The reason they click when cold is a majority of the oil has drained off of them. As the car warms up and oil is spread throughout the motor, the lifters quiet down.
Clicking sound on my coupe was diagnosed to be a bad belt. It was replaced by the ferrari/ maserati dealership at no charge. The car is running sweet. I have been very impressed by the quality and level of care by my dealership.
We have found that most of our cars get the lifter tick when they have been outside in the cold for a few hours. They will also do it if they have been sitting for a period of time as well (regardless of temp). Just letting them warm up always does the trick.
My 2002 coupe had this problem after any run for more than an hour or two. We have extremely long and hot summers where I live in Australia. Dealer replaced lifters under warranty which failed to solve problem then replaced std oil with 10w/60 and never had any problems since.
I have a 2017 Quattroporte my battery is dead is there anyway to get into the truck, if not when I left the hood I’m only seeing the positive terminal to jump the battery. Where is the negative terminal?
I was reading an article about a German tuner that extracted 14 HP out of the Ferrari V8 engine simply by adding a fuel cooling system.
What would the benefits be of fitting such a system combined to the DBW and ECU chip that FD is providing? If it delivered what it promises, combined to FD's...
Or can any anti-freeze from your local autocare store work? my CC's coolant level is at minimum and the color is red.
manual and car say to use AGIP, but I welcome those who have a lot more expertise than I do, which is most all of you! :)
