Hey Mart==Generally just one valve ticking wouldn't cause a power loss. It deoends on what kind of car and engine you have. It could be an injector ticking which would cause a dead miss. GoodluckJoe

What is that annoying ticking noise mustangs make when you change the oil?

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.

What causes ticking in the engine of a 95 Saturn sl1?

The "ticking" sound that is most common among Saturn's is caused by a slightly expanded gap in the valve spacing. It could, of course, be something else, but that seems most common. If that's what's going on, it probably isn't worth much effort to repair. Valve clatter isn't typically a problem unless it gets severe.

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.
