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.

Toyota Camry v6 1998 overheated now have a clattering noise in top end at 2000 rpm


Get a compression test done to eliminate a warped head or cracked head . Hopefully you have not cracked the block as this costs 6000 dollars AUD to fix or $3500 AUD for a Reco Engine.
If it is an alloy head the two metals cool at different rates and warping or cracking can occur. $$$$$$$ costly $$$$$$ to fix

sounds like lifters, rods normally make a knocking sound try putting a couple of bottles of engine flush in and run the car around the block a couple of time then drain the oil and change the filter and replace the oil with a quality 15w 40 grade oil and see if the noise clears up. if it is still there you can try product called moreys oil addative this often helps quiet down liftes if still no good oyu may need to replace your lifters

I have a 4 cyl 2001 toyota camry. I hear a ticking/tapping


if the oil level is ok,and the noise is coming from the top of the engine i would think also in the lifters,if is from the bottom,then the problem is in the crankshaft bearings,either way that would cost you some good money to fix it,i would recomend to add STP or Lucas engine restore to help the engine to lubricate better,they dont fix the problem but help to run you engine for a lots of more miles before you come up with some resourses to fix it wich is only possible replacing the parts,they cant be adjusted

This job can cost about $200/$400 depending who does the work.Yes you have to tahe apart the top of the engine,and the valve cover gaskets can be dobne at the same time.but these are two seperate jobs depending on which engine you have,sometimes they both have to be done when you do lifters.
