What can be done about a ticking or rattling noise coming from either the timing belt or the rear camshaft on a 95 Probe 2.5 GT?

It sounds like your timing belt hydraulic tensioner arm is bad, they are very expensive.

the clicking noise is either, a) the motor assembly of the speaker rattling, B)cone rattling, C) its just blown. it will need to be replaced either way.

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?

If it's coming from the rear, I would check either your catalytic converter or your muffler. Either could have pieces loose in them that would cause a rattling sound when you either push or release the throttle.

If the ticking is coming from under the dash. It's probably your fan housing, or a misaligned fan. You will have to get to the fan and either replace the fan, or move any obstacles that may be hitting the fan.

If it makes the ticking sound and the engine will not crank, then either your battery is dead or the starter solenoid is shot.
