If it is when you first shut the car off it is natural to tick. if it is random and not a patterned ticking. its just the car cooling off. metal has different cooling temps and when it cools it shrinks. so therefore all engines have different metals they are made of. and they cool off at different temps so therefore when the intake manifold is made of aluminum, and the head is made of aluminum, they cool at the same rate. but if there is something steel mounted to it, it will not cool at the same rate. so then it will tick. and this is the metal head shrinking faster than the steel mounted to it. like the exhaust manifold it is steel and it will tick when it is shrinking.
but dont be alarmed it is natural.

Ticking Noise


ticking noise usually but not always is from the head--valves-usually a rocker arm starved for oil or bent clogged push rod check oil if black and thin can cause tick also extreme cold can cause -because oil thickened sometimes goes away when warmed up-same noise /check oil pressure extreme problem oil pump failing or clogging --timing belt can cause a ticking but they usually fail-- break causing major problem ----other area to check are the pulleys and bearings in witch the belt rolls on-- alternator can also cause a tick when bearing is failing --

2010 Honda Civic LX light ticking noise at Idle. 49000 miles on it. No Performance problems observed, But I was curious what the noise might be, And if Autozone can check the codes for anything wrong...


I doubt a "ticking" would cause a code unless it was something like a lifter sticking which may cause a misfire but your engine light would be on if this were the case. Now can you at least narrow down the area it is in like maybe one of the pulleys for your drive belt or does it seem to be in the engine itself. You can try taking the belt(s) off and starting the engine for a short time. If the "ticking" goes away without a drive belt(s) on it, then you need to find out what componant (alternator, A/C compressor, Power steering pump...you get the idea) is making the ticking noise. Codes are in most cases dealing with a sensor of some sort. Hope this helped you....

Intermittent noise not a misfire sounds internal like a rod or valve or lifter. No check engine light, car has good power. U only hear noise after car is warm and not all the time. Could it b my belts? Any...


After it's warmed up to operating temp, if it makes the noise at idle but goes away reving the engine, I would guess that a lifter has gone bad. Rod bearings as a rule knock all the time. It's hard to diagnose these things over the internet, because there are so many variables when it comes to noises.

You need to warm the car up and then while it is running, open the hood and try to pinpoint the source. lifter noise will sound like a "tick" and come from somewhere near the top. Rod bearings will sound like a 'knock" and will come from the bottom of the engine.

Sounds like your 02 sensors are bad. This will cause speratic idle. Up down, up down. If it still fires a little after engine is shut off, then there is too much fuel in motor caused by faulty 02 sensors. This will also cause check engine light to turn on. The 02 sensors tell the computer how much gas to give to engine

Ticking noise and low oil pressure


DOES IT HAVE A LOT OF MILES ON IT OR MAY BE THE OIL PUMP IS IS GOING OUT? THERE IS A SPRING IN THE PUMP THAT IS A BYPASS FOR HOW HIGH PSI IT MAY HAVE BROKE THAT WILL GIVE YOU LOW PSI.

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.
