Sounds like an exhaust leak from the header on the engine or a worn exhaust "donut" gasket. As you press on the accelerator, the flow of exhaust builds more pressure. With more pressure and a small leak, it will cause a tick. I'n not sure if this a solution, but I is a good starting point.

2000 Cadillac DeVille sounds like prop-plane on acceleration


Could be the serpentine belt rubbing on something, but is probably a bearing problem in the belt idler pulley. However, it could be the power steering pump, AC compressor clutch or generator. As the water pump is at the opposite end of the engine, it's probably not that.

2010 Honda Civic LX light ticking noise at Idle. 49000 miles on it. No Performance problems observed, But I was curious what the noise might be, And if Autozone can check the codes for anything wrong...


I doubt a "ticking" would cause a code unless it was something like a lifter sticking which may cause a misfire but your engine light would be on if this were the case. Now can you at least narrow down the area it is in like maybe one of the pulleys for your drive belt or does it seem to be in the engine itself. You can try taking the belt(s) off and starting the engine for a short time. If the "ticking" goes away without a drive belt(s) on it, then you need to find out what componant (alternator, A/C compressor, Power steering pump...you get the idea) is making the ticking noise. Codes are in most cases dealing with a sensor of some sort. Hope this helped you....

I had a similar noise on my 01 9-3 and several mechanics suggested it was a rod knock which would require replacing the engine. Luckily it turned out to be a cracked flywheel. The repair cost me $1100.
