If there is a lot of knocking sensation, then check the engine mountings for security.
Check the engine oil level.

Please report if neither of these were the issue.

SOURCE: engine making ticking sound when hot

the internal combustion of the main valve is most likely either clogged or it has a loose spark plug that is constantly providing a spark without oil. Either that or your break pads have gone bad or just some seats and stuff loose, I'd have it checked on by your nearest professional.

SOURCE: 2002 hyundai santa fe - engine noise ticking

The cam chains have developed slack and are slapping on the cam chain guides which helps prevent the cam chains from popping off in case of slack developing . The chain guides are made of some type of plastic material and develop significant wear.

On a high mileage engine you should use 10w 30 NORMAL oil not synthetic.

SOURCE: 2006 BMW 3251 loud ticking sounds from engine

this is a very common issue with any of the bmws with n52 and n52k engine,as long as oil level is ok and is being changed regularly than than a "blleding proceedure" may solve this problem, when the engine has been running long enough that it is hot run the engine at idle to 4500 rpm for 10 to 12 min to start, if is still present after this attempt again.It has been said that this could take up to 30 min at longest.The reason for the ticking noise is a very tiny air gap in the hva and or lifters, try this and if does not work than the lifters should be replaced, although this noise doesnt really hinder the performance it does take away from driving such a nice car and having a loud noise come from the engine, good luck

I have a ticking sound coming from the rear of the car in between the rear tries sounds like a clock ticking, what is it


An increasingly noisy ticking sound coming from your engine could indicate a lifter malfunction. I once had an exhaust valve lifter 'mushroom' where the cam makes contact with the flat tappet and the lifter wouldn't move up & down smoothly. This kept the exhaust valve from letting out the unspent fuel through the exhaust and the fuel had only one place to go: past the rings & into the oil. My cylinders needed rehoned.

It could be just a lifter gone bad. Unless you're into major HP(say over 400) you've probly got hydraulic lifters. This type builds up oil pressure to take up its 1/8" or so of slack they'll see when the engine hasn't recently run .

the hard starting is the glow plugs are not all working and this is a simple job of testing them and renewing the defective ones ,but the noise in the engine is a bit more suspicious as i have no idea if this is a common rail diesel injection or a traditional injection `pump with a electrical connection on one of the injectors .What i would suggest here is to ask a local mechanic to have a look for you then post the diagnosis so it can be confirmed this is a correct diagnosis but you must appreciate that without hearing the noise myself iam at a loss as to be able to diagnose the cause .

Motor makes a pecking sound at 2000 rpm only under a load.does not do it while reving parked


Noise out of the engine. Noisy valves? Low oil level? Is the sound like tick, tick, tick, tick......that's how bad valves sound. I don't know if you have solid lifters those have to be adjusted after some mileage. Hydraulic ones are self adjusting. Only a good mechanic can tell for sure.

The water is from the thermostat housing, fairly common leak. The ticking maybe from the timing chain cassette. You may have already had the cam timing slip (the cam gears are not keyed, they are held in place by torque alone. The oil gauge sounds like an electrical problem (either sender or sender wiring).
