It also might mean - it's time for the valves to be adjusted *normal wear and tear*. I would NOT panic on this one YET! Especially since it has low mileage .. this is BAU *business as usual*!

The tick that you are hearing, normally means that the valves, seats or cam is going out.  I would change the oild and add some anti-knock additive to clear this up.  If it still doesn't clear up, you might have bigger problems.

Ticking in engine after oil change


this ticking problem is probably your hydraulic lifters, when the oil is drained they also drained and they sometimes take a while to bleed so they may be noisy... the noise should be coming from the top of the engine...

I would just check that you put in the right oil aswell just incase, if the oil was to thin it may be a little noisy.. its definately a good idea to make sure the right oil was put in (e.g. 40w-50) < this is the viscosity of the oil and to find out just ask someone in you auto parts store what oil a 92 geo storm should take...

but if the noise goes away after a drive then it was just the lifters and is not a big prob

Bmw 318i 1990 noisy tappets


well this could be a wide array of problems based on the conditions such as how often has oil been changed? how many miles on car? low oil pressure light coming on? the first thing i would try is getting some of that engine flush and following the directions, then when you add oil put in an additive that is designed to help get depoits out of the engine, only drive it about 500 miles and repeat, if the noise is better try doing this a third time By doing this i have solved enginge noises that other dealers have diagnosed as a bad engine, It is by far the cheapest solution i can offer good luck and let me know

HOW AND WHERE DO i PUT ANTI FREEZE IN MY 91 TOYOTA CELICA


you can add it to the radiator ( if the engine is cold) or look at the top of the radiator for a small hose...follow it to a plastic tank...check the cap on the top if the tank...it should say "engine coolant fill" or something to that effect...remove cap , and fill to the line....2 lines...marked hot or cold..depending on if the engine is at normal operating tempature...DO NOT OPEN THE RADIATOR CAP IF THE ENGINGE HAS BEEN RUNNING.. you can get burned really badly
