Has an exhaust leak. Either a gasket or a cracked exhaust manifold. Take it to a muffler shop for diagnosis.

There is a ticking noise when moving


The ticking noise could be coming from a CV joint. Does the ticking noise go away in reverse? A loose brake pad (Anti rattle clip missing or broken) will move back and forth in it's mounting, a warped rotor will enhance this effect, the ticking noise will come when the pads moves upward into it's mounting causing a metal on metal tick.
Does the ticking noise get louder when you are turning the vehicle? If it does this would indicate a worn CV joint.

I have a 1998 Cavalier (147,000 miles) that has made a ticking noise when I start it. However, revving the engine will quiet the noise before driving. Recently, it began making a extremely loud grinding...


unfortunately at 140,000 miles much like humans parts start to wear... now you can try to flush the oil system...I DON"T RECOMMEND IT.... I have seen engines tear apart from engine oil flushes.... drain refill the oil/filter with new oil and an additive may help, or pin down the noise to what lifter is going south and have it replaced... may end up being a very expensive repair depending on what they find when they open the engine up with high mileage...or just continue driving it untill it completely wipes out... I do belive its a hydraulic lifter that is not pumping up causing the tick and if so they usually last a long long time noisey.
