This is caused by the hydraulic VALVE lifters sticking or being worn out, other less common issue is a flat camshaft, try putting a can of BERRYMENS BRAND CHEMTOOL ADDITIVE IN THE OIL, IF THIS IS A DIRT OR VARNISH RELATED PROBLEM THEN AFTER 100 MILES OR SO IT SHOULD STOP OR AT LEAST QUITE DOWN, U MUST CHANGE THE OIL AFTER NO MORE THAN 100 MILES IF U DO THIS WITH THE CHEMTOOL.

98 ford escort ticking never loses power nor sluggish.pulled each each sparkplug ticking never stopped.what could it be


You mention a "ticking" sound,,is this from the top or bottom of engine..?

Does the ticking go on acceleration or increase with engine speed..?

A ticking noise from the top usually indicates camshaft/valve noise..

Run your engine until at normal temperature, then turn off and leave for 5 minutes for oil to settle..

Make sure your car is on level ground and check your oil level..wipe dipstick and check it again, make sure you push the dipstick all the way in an re check oil level. Top up if necessary.

The best thing to do is remove old oil filter. Drop the old oil and fit a new filter, top up with new oil, run the car and check oil level again, top up if necessary.

Low oil and old oil can wear thin and cause ticking noise from top of engine, and will also NOT PROTECT your engine...oil is the blood of your car, check levels weekly at most and change every 12 months or as recommended by your car booklet.. Use the BEST oil you can afford.

Noise startup


Have your valve lash adjusted. Overhead cams need the lash done every 25-30K otherwise after some time they make a loud ticking sound. If the motor makes a "Knocking" sound, it may be a lower end noise, and there is no adjustment for that.

1992 mazda protege dx 4 dr won't start. Battery is only 2 months old. Makes a fast ticking sound from inside car similar to turn signal light out.


Hi Robin, As the battery is new and presumably not defective, I think you should suspect the soloniod fitted to the starter motor. If that component has become defective it will give the sound you're reporting. Depending on where you live in the world and the labour charges, you can have the contacter's replaced or the starter motor (if labour charges are high) Regards John

My geo metro egine have a ticking sound


If you have adjusted your valves and the ticking persists then try changing your exhaust manifold gasket. A leaking exhaust manifold gasket will often make a loud ticking sound.

FIAT PUNTO. Ticking for short period following start up


Definitely change your oil every 3 months or 3000 miles. After you change it add a half cup of Lucas engine oil suppliment when the engine is hot.
If if goes away you know it's cam or lifter issue. If it doesn't the ticking you hear may simply be your fuel system.

My 93 acura legend wont start. Ticking sound??


That sounds like a dead battery. The ticking sound is the relay (a type of switch) which enables power to the starter motor when you turn the key. If the battery is weak, the relay will click, but there is not enough power to turn the starter motor.

1) the A/C will take some power away from the motor, If it is a big difference have the A/C system checked out.
2) the ticking can be from the lift or the timing chain from age...make sure the oil have been change with oil for the temp. ranger of where you live.
3) 95 C to 100 C is a normal ranger

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.
