Question about 1991 Honda Accord
There's a ticking noise in my engine when i shut off my 91 honda accord lx
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.
