I would invest in some decent speakers and forget about the engine noise.

These were, decent long lasting vehicles and a factor of ten better than that Toy rolla in your signature.

Cavalier? In the rustbelt? I dare say I see more Corollas up here. Maybe where rust isn't a problem the tables would be turned (not saying all 'rollas are good, they certainly had a bad batch of oil burners).

I'd go with earplugs. If adventurous you could rip out the interior and add sound deadner.

You could check for bad wheel bearings and/or bad tires. Those can be loud.

Did that once on a road trip to the Catskills in an Audi 100LS

Cresting a small rise on I 90 W, the engine proceded to throw two rods through the side of the block.

So much coolant Smoke and oil, I couldn't see a thing. I slowly Guided the car into the slow lane cable guardrail to finish it off.

Thumbed back to Chelmsford.

I'd go the opposite way and turn down the radio. I find I dislike getting out of a car and having my ears ringing after a long drive--just turning up the volume would make that worse.

I would check the motor mounts and maybe replace the belt.


make the inside of your engine oil cap white.
don't use.

Considering where you live and the age of the car, I would give it a good look over. Exhaust leaks would be a source of increased noise. Thicker oil couldn’t hurt.

I would agree with the idea of checking over the car more thoroughly than just swapping in some 'thick' oil. Is it a combination of tensioner assembly, motor mounts, and whatever else versus more than a valve tick?? Can the noise be isolated?? I'm not sure it's clear what "loud" is...

I'd start by sticking a bottle of Liqui-Moly moly treatment into it.

It can't hurt at all, will help the timing chain, and may quiet things down.

Green bottle quaker state used to be a "quiet" oil.

Also Motorcraft SS.

Don't know how the new formulation fare.


Maybe we should all try QS again its in the green bottle again?
