You may not have to live with the ticking..if your a lil motor savy you can maybe get in there and tighten down your rocker arm assembly heads..sometimes they get a lil loose and no matter how much oil there is.

If you want to elimenate the ticking you are going to have to replace the heads. This is a very expensive route.

My 96 eldorado is making a ticking sound, it sounds like its inside the engine. It ticks faster when you give it gas. What could this be?


Better get a mechanic to check it out before you drive it very much.
Could be a lifter or piston pin with no oil.

Engine ticking on cold startup


There are additives for the oil that frees sticking lifters. Try putting some in the oil first. If that doesn't work then you'll have to replace all the lifters . Never just replace just one.

A ticking sound on a 06 ford f150 super crew 5.4L


Ticking sound could be coming from a Coil-on-Plug, or a pcv valve, or (hope it's not) a valve lifter which could be sticking. Sticking lifter noise often disappears when rpm's change, or the noise comes & goes. try changing the motor oil & filter right after adding an Engine-Flush Treatment to the motor oil, running the engine for 10 minutes at idle with treatment added to the oil, then draining the oil & changing filter while oil is still very hot. That last part is very important, so be careful not to burn your hands - be careful. -- The sticking lifter is a likely cause if motor oil has not been changed at frequent intervals in the past (every 3-4K miles) -- dirty oil causes sticking lifters.

2003 dodge ram has light tick for a minute at cold start then goes away


The 'light tick' is most probably a valve lifter. The valve lifters in the engine are hydraulic, and are pressurized by the engine's oil pump.
When the engine gets some mileage, say 60 or 70 thousand miles or more, the engine is just not as tight as it once was. What happens is that the lifter loses its pressure when the engine is not running, because there is some wear. When you start the engine, the lifter takes a few moments to pressurize, and makers a ticking noise until it does. The 'ticking' is the sound of the valve being hit by the push rod, which is being pushed by the lifter. Once the lifter is pressurized, the 'ticking' sound stops. This is a very common thing for engines, it will eventually happen to nearly every one.
Sometimes, thin, old oil can cause this. If you have not changed the oil/filter in a while, you should do it now.

This is nothing to really worry about right now, but it is a sign of engine wear. Just be sure to run the proper oil in the engine, and do all the proper maintenance.

Makes like a ticking or light knocking noise at start up, whether it's hot or cold outside. I usually let the truck idle for a while and it goes away.


Usually a sign of needing an oil change. My Dodge Dakota does the same thing, when I change the oil it goes away. Every couple of oil changes I use kerosene to clean out the gunk, just put kerosene in place of the oil, let the motor run for a minute then drain, replace the oil filter, and fill with oil, then you're good to go.

2000 Plymouth grand voyager ticking issue


YOU NEED TO ISOLATE TICK TO FRONT OR REAR BANK OF ENGINE..A MECHANIC'S STETHOSCOPE CAN HELP YOU ISOLATE..THEN REMOVE FRONT OR REAR VALVE COVER AND PUSH ON EACH ROCKER ARM..IF A LASH ADJUSTER(LIFTER)IS BAD,IT WILL BE SOFT OR COMPRESS WHEN YOU PUSH ON IT..LIFTERS ARE IN ROCKER ARMS ON A 3.0L AND IN BLOCK ON 3.3 AND 3.8L ENGINES

Oil Pressure drops but returns when i restart


your engine needs flushed .what is going on is idle has less pressure than driving and the sump is picking up dirt and debris but when you turn off or idle the debris falls off the sump.

Ticking Noise in 01 Chevy Silverado 2500


if noise is higher pitched and coming in on valve time...(2wice for every revolution of motor..ie: faster)...then upper end pressure is down due to sludge, wear , lifter failure, valvespring failure,rocker stud lifting out of cylinder head (kinda common) cam bearings failing (very rare)..oil pump bypass stuck open..and a few other possibilities... respond and we will go over lower end sound (deeper ,slower) and see what identifies your issues .... miles
