Your valves may need adjustment. As an engine ages the parts develop larger than normal spaces between them through wear, what you hear is the valve lifters tapping because they have too much gap between their surfaces. If the engine is fairly low on mileage more frequent oil changes and the use of an oil treatment can often times make the noise go away, the thicker oil forces the parts closer together thereby stopping the noise.
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.
its the needle valve inside the injector opening and closing

Well if its sort of like a scratchy noise coming from the engine you might want to get your transmission checked out
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.
harmonic balance maybe bad
CV Joints? Rocks in the tire tread?
Before I can answer that question, can you describe where the ticking noise is coming from? Front of the vehicle? Rear? Engine? Is it coming from your Wheels? If its coming from the front of the vehicle you might require an oil change. If its coming from the rear of the vehicle it could be your axle. If its coming from your wheels it could be either wheel bearings or a backing plate for your brakes. Does it happen at regular intervals? Are they random and sporadic?
i was told by a Chevy serviceman that the ticking noise was coming from the fuel injectors firing.but to me it sounded more like lifters tapping or floating.
i have 99 taruas and its my battery relay
Collapsed hydraulic lifter? - try a quart of mystery oil
What causes ticking, check engine light, and the check gauges sensor to come on in a 1999 Dodge Durango 5.2L SUV?
more than likely the tensioner
"Engine temp is low 140 degrees" Bad Thermostat (stuck open) "a ticking noise is coming from the upper part of the engine" Lifters Make a ticking noise, To stop that there are these bags that fill with oil. If you run low on oil the bags don't inflate at you get a clicking. Check you oil level!!! The bags could be bad, the oil supply could be clogged, or something else could be wrong.
the wheel has to get changed you ediot
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.
the ticking noise is a small exhaust leak close to the exhaust headers or exhaust pipe near the engine.
Take it to a mechanic
If its coming from your engine, you may need a valve adjustment..
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.
The fuel injectors make the ticking noise you hear at startup, especially when the engine is cold (colder temperatures).
yes, my 2000 grand prix gtp is losing power and makes ticking noise.
