Hopefully just a valve lash adjustment.
Your valves need adjustment. Take it to your preferred mechanic.
That slight ticking sound is probably the injectors firing which is normal.
The ticking sound is coming from the valve lifters. When the oil filter is changed, air is introduced into the system, which causes air bubbles to form in the oil. This causes the valve lifters to "leak down", which is what causes the ticking sound. It can take several days for the bubbles to dissipate. It's annoying, but harmless.
Normally loose tappets will cause a ticking sound in the engine. Depending on if you have mechanical or hydraulic tappets you may need to have them replaced or simply adjusted.
The most likely cause of a ticking sound in a motor is a bad timing belt. A valve out of time can also cause a ticking sound.
Lack of oil lubrication to lifters
I don't know, take your car for a check up and tell them about it...
the ticking is the blinkers
Get your brakes tested. I do not know what a ticking sound means.
there is a dust cover behind the front rotors they sumtimes bend slightly and it causes the ticking and crackling
that's just the sound of the steel bits cooling down
If the ticking sounds like a "normal" ticking, it is probably the fuel injectors.
It's a rocker arm tapping at valve stem. Hydraulic lifters (hydraulic rocker mounts) are the common reason for the ticking. If it doesn't go away when the engine heats up, consider replacing the lifter where the ticking comes from.
turn your blinker of
It means that your clock is working. Also the sound is the seconds hand ticking
I have a 1998 olds cutlass and it is leaking cooling and have a bad ticking sound what do you think I should do.
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.
A ticking or clicking sound is probably lifter noise, the valves need adjusting
Ticking on acceleration is usually the ignition timing, get it tuned..
The tinking sound if it is a light sound is probably the fuel injectors working which is normal but I would check the oil level and make sure it is full first it could be lifters ticking or clattering.
If it makes the ticking sound and the engine will not crank, then either your battery is dead or the starter solenoid is shot.
In spring wound clocks, the ticking is the sound of a ratchet alternately catching and releasing a gear that both unwinds the spring and causes the hands to move.Hope this helps.
The Ticking in the alligators stomach
A 97 Maxima can have these symptoms because of a bad alternator. If the alternator has low output there can be a ticking and eventually the engine will stop running.
