You must have a nearly dead battery, have it jumped then go to a Kragen and have them test the battery and the charging system for a fault. This is FREE!

SOURCE: ticking noise upon engine start

Hi,
It would seem you could have a problem with the valve train inside the engine. The best way to see if it is a valve train noise is to purchase a product called Morays Oil valve lubricant and just pour it straight into the engine.
Be sure to only put 250mls in as if you overfill the oil capacity it will cause you a bit more trouble then what you are having. But once you start up the engine the ticking sound should go away or at least be alot quieter then what it has been.
If this happens then you will need to have the valve trained looked at and you may get away with it just being adjusted, if not then you will be looking at replacing valve lifters.
Let me know if you need more information.
Thanks
Jason

Have a 06 Pilot with 3.5 v6 and 120000 miles. Has developed a ticking in valve train. Valves were adjusted, plugs replaced engine is spotless inside no visible signs of any problems and no codes yet...


the valve train has nothing to do with the adjustment of the valves , , the ticking sounds like something may be hitting somewhere , when you rev the engine does the ticking go faster or what you have to be more specific on this problem ,

1995 saturn sl2 ticking noise when accelerating


these are known for carbon build up on the valves that cause several problems.this could be the problem as the carbon can cause the valves to stick a bit in the valve guides while its running and show up as a ticking noise with the gas applied.have the top end service done which cleans the fuel system injectors and any carbon build up on the back of the valves.if this gets bad enough it can cause the cam holders to break locking up the motor if the piston hits the valve.another thing to check is oil pressure and the lifters may be worn to the point that they need replacing.check the cam lobes as well if worn these can cause a ticking noise on acceleration.

Ticking under the hood.


I kind of had the same problem with my car, the dealer kept saying it was nothing wrong with the vehicle and that the ticking noise would fix itself electronically. Wrong, it was my valves needed adjustment and that ticking noise was never going to be fixed electronically.
