As I was driving my intrigue tonight it developed a sudden ticking noise in the engine sounds like its coming from the top. Anyone know anything about this and are there any quick solutions to the problem or am I looking at big $$$$$$??? Thanks!
Need to check and make sure that there is enough oil in the car. make sure that the right grade of oil is in it. sounds like your hearing your lifters. does that sound go faster or get louder when you rev up motor a little?

Hello: Something doesn't sound correct. Is the water pump driven by the belt that drives the alternator, a/c compressor and power steering pump? If so the you may have to tap on it with a hammer to break it loose from the engine. Make sure you clean all the old gasket off before installing the replacement.
Probably, but other things can cause what sounds like a tick as well. Early rod wear can sound a lot like a lifter tick. Sometimes even the transmission can develop a ticking in the area of the torque converter/pump. If there is no other apparent issues, chalk it up to old bones - after all you have 186K on it.
There are several possible causes, but the most common would be a temporarily stuck thermostat due to cold weather. Refill the reservoir, and monitor the level daily. If it drops suddenly, or if you notice high engine temps or a loud whistling noise while driving, you'll need to change the thermostat.
you have 3 choices.
1) Bad battery
2)Starter motor solenoid is inoperative or starter motor itself is inoperative
3) your engine is locked up
How old is your battery and are the connections to the starter motor good?
Do you hear a clicking noise when you try to start the engine?
Do you have a clunk noise when you try to start it?
If dirty connections then clean the terminals andtry to start engine.
Clicking noise means starter solenoid is picking up but starter motor is disunctional and needs replacement.
If the noise is a clunk then your engine is locked up for whatever reason.
Last but not least if you hear the starter motor runningand a metalic grinding then the star is bad on the starter motor which means replacement of same.
It sounds like the lifters are still sticking. Change your oil/filter then after 500 miles change it again. Since motor oil has a mild detergents, a couple of changes should hopefully remove any buildup from around the lifters. Do not use "motor flush". Even though your engine is fairly new, it may remove too much buildup and flush it onto your crankshaft bearings. You may try some marvel mystery oil also and I've heard seafoam does a good job, if you can find it. Mine started ticking after using one of the super thick oil additives. I'm still trying to flush that stuff out.
