Have you checked your oil? Low oil will cause that sound.

SOURCE: Ticking sound

Gm will tell you this is normal lifter noise if it from the top of the motor. It could be from the exhaust but you would hear it from under the car more. I do not care for the responce from GM but they say it is ok.

SOURCE: ticking sound

A sound that is deeper than a lifter or rod bearing is usually a main bearing, though it's possible that a cracked flywheel can also make a similar noise, and won't make noise when under no load. You have identified it as engine related and not a c/v joint or other driveline item?
I suggest that you bring it to a shop known to have older experienced techs...only long term experience can train your ear to be able to tell the difference in noises like yours. I'm leaning towards a flywheel at this point but possibly actually hearing it would change my mind. (forget the lifter thing... I may have mis-read original post.)

This is a common problem on many Grand Ams. GM has a recall out there on the 00-03 models. Unfortunately they discontinued the recall for the 04 and newer models. The flasher most likely needs to be replaced. The part costs about $30 and labor can run you between 70 and 90 dollars an hour. The part only takes about 30 minutes to be replaced. So you can either get it repaired or just turn your radio up really loud and drown out the ticking noise!!! :D

Sounds like you may have a worn out CV joint and the clicking may stop with an oil change. Good Luck

SOURCE: My turn signal keeps making the ticking noise after its cancelled

That is the "Hazard Switch" located on the dash. A very easy fix and have always been a common issue with those types of GM cars.

Hi! I have a jeep 2001 Laredo and a noise is coming from the engine.I wanted to sell the jeep but how can i get this fixed?Some mechanics do not want to get involved! Thanks!

Depends on the noise you are hearing and how the engine is performing with the noise versus before the noise came along. It come be something as simple as an idler pulley making noise which is replaceable in 10mins or crankshaft main bearings knocking which would be more cost/time effective to replace the engine. Need a better description of the noise to diagnose online. Top/bottom, knock/tick, does it go away when idling/under load etc... the more details the better.

What i sthe first sign of the transmission going bad on our 1996 jeep cherokee?

if your trans is slipping when driving or if when you shift from park to reverse or drive it has a delay it doesn't necessarily mean the whole transmission is going. Could be something as simple as low or leaking fluid, a solenoid, a gasket...start with a trans service, if there is excessive metal in the pan, then your trans gears are going and you will need an overhaul or reman trans. Reman is cheaper and has a better warranty than an overhaul--faster too.

I'm trying to get a ballpark figure for repairing my 2000 jeep grand cherokee. It appears that I may have blown the heads in it. I was having a problem with it blowing the coolant back out of it. I started...

wow so many variables. warped heads/ damage to the cam/rods/valve/ valve lifters.
possibly a whole lot more problems.
i blew a head gasket on a car. replaced it for about 40 bucks and several hours labourgh.
the thing never did work great after that.

The 4 wheel drive on my 2000 jeep grand cherokee

The ticking noise is most likely your tranfer case chain. the chains in this case...overtime....will stretch, causing the chain to have enough slack the hit the bottom of the case.

Difference between oil sending unit and the oil pressure switch

Same part...make sure you get one for gauge, not idiot light though. If the engine has any knocking or ticking when pressure drops do not drive it and have a mechanical gauge installed to check actual pressure. Parts often have different names for same item...your driveshaft is actually called a propeller shaft!!!

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee overheated

You probably messed up a rod or caused piston damage your going to need more than a head gasket usauly when you over heat a car you causing the pistonts to expand more then they need to causing scouring and exsisive piston ware by the sound of it and the year your better off replacing the whole motor or completely rebuilding the old one wich will cost more then a use motor! good luck!
