From the description you give, this sounds like the engine is "pinging". the way to solve this is to use a higher octane gas, or change to a hotter spark plug.

Have a 06 Pilot with 3.5 v6 and 120000 miles. Has developed a ticking in valve train. Valves were adjusted, plugs replaced engine is spotless inside no visible signs of any problems and no codes yet...


the valve train has nothing to do with the adjustment of the valves , , the ticking sounds like something may be hitting somewhere , when you rev the engine does the ticking go faster or what you have to be more specific on this problem ,

I have a stock '02 RSX-S with 93K miles.I recently started hearing a ticking sound coming from the engine while accelerating at low rpm's in any gear (i can hear it at higher rpm's too, but at that point...


Sounds like an Exhaust Manifold leak on only one cylinder. The Gasket is probably blown out. Check around where manifold is bolted to the engine. Any leaks are usually evident by a black sooty deposit.

Ticking noise


It is part of the waste gate just above the gas tank. It periodically checks for leaks and pressurizes and releases. Gives a ticking noise when it does this. Not a problem and GM is aware of this and said its normal on our cars.
