Question about 1998 Toyota Camry
Might be a lot of thing, verify first at wich rpm the noise occures, in which situation. A clicking noise at idle and faster rpm could be the lifters, crank or even injectors (they tend to get noisy when they get dirty, saved one of my friend's tercel with a good presure injector cleaner). Try to duplicate de noise and see if it comes from the top of engine (cams, lifters) or the buttom (crank). If the noise ONLY happens on accelerations it might be a timing problem (pinking, it sound exactly like you were breaking glass). If so get the timing fixed ASAP, pinking can melt a hole in a piston in no time.
