The ticking noise is the metal cooling.
from which part of your engine is the ticking noise coming from. if is the TOP it would most likely be lifter noise.try using a thicker oil.
I have a 2007 Nissan sentra and it did the same thing especially when pressing on accelerator. Had to replace my intake valve timing control solenoid bc of long oil changes.
well it sounds like your lifters are ticking The connecting rods screaming LET ME OUT!!!
98 Chevy new 383 block 30k, ticking noise from sounds like heads . 210k on heads;
A ticking or clicking sound is probably lifter noise, the valves need adjusting
horses make neighing sounds
My car was making this noise when I started it up. the noise went away after driving for a while. turnd out I just needed more oil.
CV Joints? Rocks in the tire tread?
I just bought an 04 Malibu from a dealer and noticed a ticking noise inside the dash that sounded like the blinker was on but it wasn't. I asked the dealer about it and he told me in these cars it's typical for the turn signal to continuously catch so it would make the noise even though the blinker wasn't actually turning on
when i cut my car off and cut it back on its makes a ticking sounds, then i would have to get a jump then it would fire right up> we just go an 02 censor put on the car.
Collapsed hydraulic valve lifter? Rocker arm (valves) need adjusting?
The ticking noise could be worn out rocker arms under valve covers. Switch to heavier weight oil if ticking noise subsides that could be your problem. This is usually a sign of a high mileage engine. Worst case scenario would be weak oil pump not getting oil to top of heads.
Check the oil. Failed lifters/rocker arms would not be uncommon.
can you elaborate? engine noise? stationary/moving? ticking, tapping or a definite knocking?
the wheel has to get changed you ediot
A gasket leaking will cause this noise. Did you torque to the right specs and in the right sequence then retorque after 3 heat cycles.
Power steering belt?
Most likely is knocking. Try next higher octane grade of gasoline.
The cool water hitting your piping hot exhaust makes the metal contract (Shrink) and it makes a ticking noise.
The check engine light is not related to the oil or the transmission fluid systems. It is related to fuel control, computer, emmissions control systems. The faint ticking you hear may just be the normal noise coming from the fuel injectors. All fuel injectors make some kind of ticking noise while they operate. I would say, if the check engine light has anything to do with the services performed, it would almost have to be a simple connector that may have been unplugged to move a wire out of the way, and then forgotten. Otherwise, I believe it would have to be a coincidence. Even if the ticking noise is a lifter in te engine, that still would not cause a check engine, and would not be the fault of someone changing the oil, as long as the oil is full.
Ignore the previous answer. Whoever posted that is WRONG. The 5.4 (As you obviously know) , is a GAS engine. A ticking noise in a 5.4 could be a number of things. Cracked exhaust manifold, Bad EGR Valve, a bad lash adjuster, or it's getting ready to blow a spark plug.
if its a tick not a knock, its probably lifter noise. its not too terrible, once the weather warms up, i would recommend getting some thicker oil, if it fixes it, then im probably right.
