from which part of your engine is the ticking noise coming from. if is the TOP it would most likely be lifter noise.try using a thicker oil.

the ticking noise is likely the fuel injectors, which you probably didn't notice before because you weren't looking for anything wrong.

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.

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.

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.

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.
