    hi thanks for that there no noise when the car is stationary and you rev it it is only when on the road and the sound seems to come from behind the vent on the driver side

    i topped up the oil a little and that seems to lower the clicking noise sound so i will try and top it right up tomorrow to see if it gets rid of the noise

Hello, this noise may be a stuck or warped lifter. This also can be a warped wrist pin or a thrown bearing. I would check and see if your oil is sludgy for a lack of better words for starters. I would check your oil level as well. Your valve lash can be off as well and this can be thrown off by this causing the ticking noise you are talking about. Is the noise coming from the top or the bottom of the motor. I hope this helps. Thank You.

Car Makes Screeching Noise When Turned On With Ac On


This is very typical of a slipping A/C compressor drive belt. Inspect the belt for fraying and cracking and renew it if needed. Check the tension and make sure it is correct, and in a new one recheck after about 4 wks. It should deflect about 1 cm in the middle of the longest span with a firm push.

You can put some soap or drylube wax on the contact surfaces of the belt but that is temporary. Do not use petroleum products like WD40.
