Ticking sound from engine

I have a 2005 Range Rover Freelander. I noticed a few days ago a ticking sound coming from the engine that got louder/faster with acceleration. I checked the oil and it was low, added oil and the noise was still there. I contacted a mechanic and he thought it could be a lifter, but was not sure. I can't get it in until Thurs. to be looked at. Any ideas of what it could be? And if it is a lifter what kind of bill am I looking at?

I doubt it is a lifter but it could be. they are of the hydralic type. it is probably one of the cheap plastic motors in the intake manifold. they always go out. a new manifold cost about 900 us.

Pulsing idle

Could be the Throttle Position Sensor. Just changed mine and it now idles properly. Mine would occasionally surge when at idle. Mine would also rev around 1500 to 1800 at startup and take a very long time coming down to normal idle. Changing the TPS has solved all my idle problems.

I own a FIVE DOOR 2004 TD4 FREELANDER HSE.A month ago i experienced hard starting for a few days then the problem cleared on its own.I would try to start it then got it going after the 2nd or 3rd...

This sounds like the starter has gone out. It usually doesn't happen this early on but it all depends on how often it is used. The best thing to do would be to take it out and take it to your local parts store and see if they can run a "bench" test on it to see if it is any good! If you go to start it and you don't hear it clicking or ticking when you turn the key that is a sure sign it went bad. If you do hear that then you may have a problem with the ignition itself! Hope this is of some help!

Have a good one!

Check and make sure you have oil in the engine and also check the engine oil pressure if pressure is low you have a bad engine needs rebuilding.

Directional indicator hazard warning lights on my 1999 Freelander have failed

Indecators and Hazzard lights are the same light and globes but what you have is either a blown fuse or a relay or the most common thing is the FLASHER CAN its the thing thats makes an brake alowing the flash,now it should either be in the fuse box or under the Dash as you would have heard it in the past few days ticking or clicking when they were working .Just unplug it and get a new one.

Let me know how you get on ASAP Ron
