My 06 dodge charger rt has been making like a ticking noise since i bought the car in 09 is it normal or is there a problem


Since the ticking noise has been going on for about 6 years and you have not noticed anything yet, doubt that it is much of a problem.

To be sure, next time in for service, have the mechanic check it out. A valve adjustment may be necessary. Or a lifter may need some work.

If the ticking is coming from the engine, take a short length of pipe and hold it on the valve cover, etc.. You might be able to locate the ticking this way. Don't touch any electrical contacts.

If it's coming from somewhere else on the car, with the car in park and on, give a listen under the car at various points to see you if can determine location.

Why does engine run rich at times under acceleration?


not enough detail
to get an engine to accelerate , the air /fuel mixture is moved to rich in accordance with engine rpms
the more rpms the richer until the peak rpms are reached
( accelerator pump-power valve in carbies and ECM settings according to accelerator position
black exhaust smoke in diesels
so if you press the accelerator slowly then the air/fuel mixture is altered constantly in relation to the pedal setting
If you floor the pedal then it moves to rich and you get black exhaust smoke until the air mixture is again in balance

Ticking noise under hood/ possibly tranny


First thing I would check is the oil level. Sounds like a upper engine (valvetrain) problem. If oil level is ok then you will need to pull valve cover to inspect for proper upper oiling.

Tapping noise


rocker arms need adjusted gap is too wide . the increased rpms make it noisy. stp would muffle it but it needs the gap set cause if you really rev it hard something up top can let go from the slapping of the rocker arms on top of your valves

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.

1986 mighty max 2.0 engine makes a ticking noise most of the time. At higher rpms it stops. What could it be ? It kind of sounds ike a vaccum leak ? maybe ?


A ticking sound is usually a valve and if it stops at higher rpms I would guess it is oil related. Seems like the oil pump might be getting tired and not pumping enough at low rpms.

First of all it can be misaligned,or have miss one teeth of the belt if so the engine will never start,you are right the ticking noise came mainly from the valve,how long have you have adjusted the valve clearance ?I think you must check the valve adjustment before taking another step.Hope that clear your mind and will solve it.

2001 Buick Century Ticking Noise


Okay, lets hope it is something simple. Remove the underhood light bulb. At night, in the dark, start the engine and look under the hood. You may be able to see sparks jumping. This would be bad wires. If you can see where the spark plugs go and one has a spark jumping it is just one bad sparkplug. Turn off car-replace underhood bulb.
If you see no sparks then it is most likely the valve train. If you have adjustable lifters they need someone to tighten them up to specifications. If they are not adjustable you may need to replace worn parts.
Make sure you keep fresh and plenty of oil in the engine. It can not repair worn parts but if the oil is low or dirty you will have bigger problems.

Tapping noise


A tapping sound could be lifter tick, or rod knock... if it goes away, what you have is lifter tick, check your oil, low oil makes it worse.

Oil pumps up the hydraulic lash adjusters in your valve covers, at lower RPMs, the oil pressure is lower and will not fully pressurize them. Try holding your rpm at about 3500 or so with the car in neutral (parked) and see if it goes away, it should.

In later years (I think starting in 97 or so) mitsu started using a larger bore so called "third gen" lash adjuster. They don't tick as much, but they still do at times.

The good news, lash adjusters are not THAT hard to replace, figure a set of 24 will run you less than 150 in parts.

The better news, it doesn't hurt anything, as long as you can live with the sound, there isn't any reason to change them.

Good luck,
Scott
