more than likely the tensioner
it is the lifters, so you will need to change the head
== == Could be a pebble stuck in the tread of one of your tires.The ticking noise only appears to disappear because the tone or pitch of the noise gets higher with speed to the point at which it is undetectable to the human ear.
the ticking noise is likely the fuel injectors, which you probably didn't notice before because you weren't looking for anything wrong.
the ticking noise is a small exhaust leak close to the exhaust headers or exhaust pipe near the engine.
The fuel injectors make the ticking noise you hear at startup, especially when the engine is cold (colder temperatures).
if ticking noise is in engine, u most likely have a worn hydraulic lifter. check oil for correct volume and viscocity
The ticking noise is the metal cooling.
yes, my 2000 grand prix gtp is losing power and makes ticking noise.
Take it to a mechanic
My 2006 TT-R has a slight ticking noise. BTW the bike is almost brand new, almost 10 hours on it.
It sounds like your timing belt hydraulic tensioner arm is bad, they are very expensive.
Failing bearings and spring loadings of the tensioner assembly can cause noise and belt tracking. However, timing and other mechanical issues can also cause ticking and clicking noises. The tensioner and idler pullies in addition to the belts are not considered a costly repair for this application. It is advisable to have the condition verified by a professional before replacing perfectly functional parts. However, belts are routing wear items and should be replaced at appropriate intervals.
Is it a lifter ticking?
Most likely the ticking you are hearing is that from your solonoid. This is generally related with insufficient power from the battery.
Try to locate the ticking noise. Is it the engine? Is it ticking when you are driving? When you are sitting still? It could be as simple as a stone stuck in yoru tire, everytime it hits the road it ticks. it could be a lifter in the engine. Try to be more specific as to where and when the ticking happens.
could be a lifter sticking
You will need to change it out. The bearing is failing.
there is a rattling noise in the area of the serpentine bell
you need to give more detail on where the noise is coming from. Otherwise it could be several things such as exhaust leak, rockers, lifters, or valves ticking bcause they are bent. ac compressor ticking because its bad. several other things. be more detailed. specific.
ticking noise is usually "lifter noise". if this noise increases in speed when accelerating then it is "lifter noise". just change your oil.and or maitain proper oil level.try using a medium to thick oil 20/30 20/50 , there is a product call lucas which also helps your oil lubricate the engines moving parts easier. i have use it, and it works , it takes a few miles but it works.
battery is dead
yes, if the tensioner is bad it will make a noise at idle, but when you rev it up the chain will get tighter and the noise will go away.
well it sounds like your lifters are ticking The connecting rods screaming LET ME OUT!!!
