possibly your lifters and cam may need replaced, try a synthetic oil to prevent changing immediately
I had a '93 I had at one time and amongst a lot of other Fords, but when I had the '93 I bought it with 17K miles w/ the 4.0, it also ticked seemed more than the V-8's did, so a had a few techs listen to it and they said it's typical for a Ford to tick like so because they have hydraulic lifters and will tick even more when it sits for a long period of time due to the oil getting to the lifters, especially when it sits overnight.
you need to adjust the valves
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.
Hopefully just a valve lash adjustment.
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.
Your valves need adjustment. Take it to your preferred mechanic.
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.
That slight ticking sound is probably the injectors firing which is normal.
A ticking or clicking sound is probably lifter noise, the valves need adjusting
Ticking on acceleration is usually the ignition timing, get it tuned..
If it is a 4.0 SOHC then they had many issue with the CAM chain guides. Upper and lower, we had ours replaced under warranty 6 times then the FORD deal said they would no longer warrant it. Almost sound like a diesel when at idol.
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.
