Volvo 940 Troubleshooting

What you are probably hearing is referred to as "piston slap". It occurs over time as the side-to-side motion of the piston as it moves up and down in the cylinder slowly wears the lower walls of the cylinder, changing it more cone-like. This causes the bottom edge of the piston skirt to strike the bottom edge of the piston wall as it transitions from its lowest point to begin its upward stroke. This was a issue on the Volvo Turbo engines. Google it and you will see that they made changes in 1993 to help prevent this. This problem will not go away. Eventually you will break a piston skirt and that will be the end. If you can, get the engine overhauled before the damage is permanent.

I Have a ticking sound from under the bonnet and it sounds a bit like i am driving a Transit Van from inside

If its really loud and sounds like a transit then the bottom end is knocking so the egine is pretty much no good.

If its a slight ticking noise higher pitch then its the hydrolic tappets can be fixed but depends how bad they are they might have to be replaced.

Also check the oil level. is it a zetec? petrol or diesel?
