What would cause a ticking sound on a 2000 Pontiac grand am It does not seem to be coming from the engine but from the bottom right side?
Why would a 1997 Dodge Caravan engine make a tapping-ticking noise that went away after warming up but now is constant and seems to come from the top of the engine?
The 3.0L engine had a problem with the lifters that would cause the top end to tick. There is a TSB i believe on how to fix it. If the ticking is coming from the bottom of the engine (sometimes hard to tell) then you might have a Con-Rod knock that starting to show. Eitherway take it to a mechanic for diagnoses.
Engine temp is low 140 degrees and a ticking noise is coming from the upper part of the engine What is wrong?
"Engine temp is low 140 degrees" Bad Thermostat (stuck open) "a ticking noise is coming from the upper part of the engine" Lifters Make a ticking noise, To stop that there are these bags that fill with oil. If you run low on oil the bags don't inflate at you get a clicking. Check you oil level!!! The bags could be bad, the oil supply could be clogged, or something else could be wrong.
