Question about Cars & Trucks
The oil and oil filter was changed but did not have any effect. once the vehicle goes above 2000 rpm the ticking noise starts wit the check engine oil warning and the ticking noise is constant even when the engine is in idle. if you don't go above 2000 rpm there is no ticking and no warning, even if you drive above 100 kph. in morning when u start the engine the warning comes on for a few seconds but goes away. the mechanic who changed the oil said it may be a bad oil pump. any suggestions or help would be appreciated. the vehicle is a chevrolet lumina ls 2005 model with almost 200,000 miles run.

Ok if you have a check engine light on then you need to have a computerised diagnostic on the car..which will give you an error code...

I have a 94 YJ gave me the same issues and I did all you did and more.
Finely I was told that penzoil has a parfin base which lends it self to the cause. I don't know if it is true or not I'm just a shade tree mech. I switched over to full synthetic and WA-LA It took a couple of changes after a good cleaning but I've been TICK free for a over a year now. since I do my own change it helps hold the cost down. I was also told I needed lifters and a rebuild & all that jazz so I figured that if she was gona die I'd deal with that when it happens so far so good.

it may need a lifter or valve adjustment when cold they will tick or knock depending on how loose or worn out then when it warms up they swell with heast and noise stops. after adjusting or replacing it will stop making noise

I had what sounds like the exact same problem. It was an exhaust leak from the left (driver's) side exhaust manifold. This engine has a history of the manifold bolts breaking and causing the exhaust leak. The engine is also used on some Dodge vehicles. It sounds like a tick and I almost mistook it for a bad lifter. I took it to the local Jeep dealer who confirmed the exhaust leak. I replaced the left manifold completely and replaced bolts/gaskets on both sides (left/right) and it fixed the problem. Be careful, as the dealer tried to gouge me on the price. You are looking in the ball park of $600 parts/labor. I got parts for $120 and it took the better part of a work day to do the job.
