While I believe this is a valvetrain issue it is not a cam follower issue. A stuck valve will tend to cause a whistling sound at half throttle. It sounds like a timing issue.

Grinding nose from timing cover and a tick from valve cover could that tick be chain slap or is the 2.4 a no tolarince motor

The Tick is more likely worn lifters and cam. The grinding noise is most likely the timing chain guide is worn out or broken. Possibly a bad timing chain Tensioner. That IS an interference engine.

I have a 2001 Saturn LS1 that has a sort of clicking noise coming from the passenger side of the motor. it sounds external and I have been told it might be the timing chain as my particular model is said...

Here is what you do. Find the VIN for the car and then get on google and find which is the closest GM dealer who was saddled with the Saturn warranty and maintenance burden. Call them on the phone, or drop by, give them your VIN and see if the timing chain recall was ever done on that car. If not then most likely GM will do that for you. If it was done then you are going to have to buy a timing chain kit on eBay or at a parts store and pay someone who knows what they are doing to put it in for you. This is not a repair for a first timer or the faint of mechanical heart. Replace ALL the wear parts which are under the timing cover, not just a new chain.

Before you go off half-cocked, take a very very long large screw driver and put the metal end on each turning component near the ticking sound, then with great care put the handle end on your ear. Please use some sense as this an become a hurtling projectile of death. Whatever is ticking will become clear. Parts stores sell stethoscopes for this, if you have long hair do yourself a favor and pay a bald friend. There is a chance it is not the timing chain.

Rapping/ticking sound in my 2001 Chevy tracker engine.

does it go tick tick tick tick and when it warms up it stops or goes quiet?
its your lifters not getting enough oil
when u change your oil it will stop till that oil gets worn out
you will have to replace the lifters or it can also be a slack oil pump not pumping oil around the engine like it should
