Re: 1992 side kick
Problem here is a ticking to one is a knock or a tap or a thud ect to others so of my experiance with engines if its a ticking that gets louder with the engine getting warmer its got to be the tappets its the only thing that would get louder if it gets louder when accelerating it could be ignition timming causes pinking most other things on engines that cause ticking sounds could be something catching fuel pumps cause a ticking noise but are not normally affected by engine temp yates210456

When you rebuilt the engine, did you replace the oil pump? Not replacing it a common mistake people make. If your have no pressure and it's pecking, don't continue driving it until the pump is replaced or you'll spin a rod bearing and ruin your crankshaft at the least, your block at worst. Good luck.
Lifter may be worn or cam lobe is worn and is probably due a timing belt replacement as well.Sounds like just a high mileage problem lots of people complain of valve train noise from these engines its not uncommon. I would use a high mileage engine oil to help with the noise but i am afraid the noise is only going to get worse over time you may look into salvage engine with a warranty or having the engine rebuilt it sounds like it is already burning oil. The valve lash can be adjusted on this engine but if your not a mechanic i do not recommend this, it is very sensitive procedure and can damage the engine permanently. Take it to a shop have them check your valve lash and adjust it for the noise issue to save yourself some time and money on a very costly repair with improperly adjusted valve lash. Remember to rate my solution Thanks in advance.
A "ticking" noise can be caused by several things. First thing to check is the oil level. When an engine is low on oil, there's a lack of lubrication and you will hear the lifters "ticking". Some cars make a "ticking" noise with the AC on. The ticking is the compressor kicking on and off.
If either the torque converter or the oil pump was defective, you'll have a problem with the drive.....It wont pull correctly and eventually, you'll lose the drive....It's more likely to be something else.... As you recently had the engine out for a rebuild, make sure there's nothing stuck where it shouldn't be.... You may even find that the noise is coming from somewhere else altogether....That sometimes happens with vehicles.... Let me know what you find out....
