If a Pontiac Sunfire is making a ticking sound is it due to not changing the oil?

Sometimes a ticking sound is a valve lifter. The faster you go the faster the ticking will be.

Make sure first it is not something stuck in a tire or something on the fan belt.

It's normal for the ABS unit in that vehicle to make an awful noise while making an ABS stop. I'm not sure exactly what causes it.

These are reported to be booklice, not spiders, (though people describing them refer to them as ticking spiders) and with poor eyesight communicate at night by sometimes making a clearly audible "ticking" noise, by tapping the abdomen on the surface of paper. Check out Liposcelis divinatorius.

Well, the fuel pump is inside the fuel tank. It may very well be that your pump is what's making the noise.

Possible lifters that are bad that could explain your ticking noise. It should cost you nothing by stopping by an Auto repair shop and have them listen to your engine.

Good question! But, the Sunfire had a run of nearly 10 years. Zillions of them were sold and were/are still quite dependable, but the time comes with all car models when it's time to update. Newer technologies need to be put into place. The styling has become dated and customers no longer find the car attractive or competitive. I guess quitting on a high note is the best thing. Sadly, Pontiac is going the way of Oldsmobile. There will be no more. Those of us who own and love our "Ponchos" will have to take very good care of all of them if we expect to see them on the road in the years to come. RIP Pontiac ~

Check the oil. Failed lifters/rocker arms would not be uncommon.

Its possible that this ticking sound is caused from driving fast for prolong periods. Its possible that its not the engine that is making the sound, but the exhaust system somewhere. I hear a ticking sound if I drive over 140KMh for long periods. It always stops once the car cools. I hopes this helps.

They had too many different models.

Fuel injectors can stick and sound like lifters but not as loud. Lifters of course. The speed of the ticking would help, one or two cylindars or all of them? A spark jumping, but there should be some loss of performance.
