At that many miles, the engine may be showing signs of wear. The cam lobes wear or you may have low oil pressure, if you have hydraulic lifters, one could be leaking off. What engine do you have? Overhead cams or centered? v8 or v6? can you confirm it is coming from the engine?. It has been seen where a spark jumping from an aged plug wire causes a ticking sound also. Yoou can chk the wire issue just mentuined by looking over the engine when it's dark out w/itg running.A sparkm that hot can be seen. The mileage is impressive but they eventually start showing the effect of time. You may want to change your oil and filter. Strain the oil through a clean rag and see what filters out. Metal, carbon particles,oil sludge, or whatever.Years go I put engine cleaner in my old pontiac and ended up plugging up the oil pick up tube screen. Start at the oil before jumping into tsuch a dedicated engine.Maybe up you oil viscosity. Good Luck.

The ticking could be coming from the lifters . Do you know what they are ? It would be to your benifit to have a trained ear listen to it .

How do i fix my 2001 740i bmw it makes a ticking sound win idleing


could possibly be a lifter tapping (Ticking) ,depending on how many miles the vehicle has on it might be time for lifters to be adjusted,most foreign overhead cam engines must have lifters adjuster periodically ,if you turn on the air its puts more of a load on the engine causing a louder sound (also check oil level an engine low on oil will start to tick too.. the more wear the engine gets the looser the lifters can get over time ,look in your service manual if you have one and see what the intervals are on lifter adjustment this can give you an idea.
possible only if
the ticking sound is coming from the top of the engine usually comes from under the vavle covers where the lifters are located,

Pound ticking noise when my 99 durango starts goes away after the engine warms up


The ticking noise could be a faulty hydrulic valve lifter. When last was the oil & filter changed, it coul be that the oil is thick and not going through to the lifters and when it warms up the oil is thin. It could be that the engine is need of an overhaul as 148.000 miles is 238.182 Kilometers and that is a hi milage.

2003 dodge ram has light tick for a minute at cold start then goes away


The 'light tick' is most probably a valve lifter. The valve lifters in the engine are hydraulic, and are pressurized by the engine's oil pump.
When the engine gets some mileage, say 60 or 70 thousand miles or more, the engine is just not as tight as it once was. What happens is that the lifter loses its pressure when the engine is not running, because there is some wear. When you start the engine, the lifter takes a few moments to pressurize, and makers a ticking noise until it does. The 'ticking' is the sound of the valve being hit by the push rod, which is being pushed by the lifter. Once the lifter is pressurized, the 'ticking' sound stops. This is a very common thing for engines, it will eventually happen to nearly every one.
Sometimes, thin, old oil can cause this. If you have not changed the oil/filter in a while, you should do it now.

This is nothing to really worry about right now, but it is a sign of engine wear. Just be sure to run the proper oil in the engine, and do all the proper maintenance.

When i spped up my truck makes a ticking sound ..what could that be?


It is more than likely the lifters ticking. After a lot of miles then the hydraulic lifters don't hold oil pressure and start ticking. Engines will run for a very long time with the lifters ticking. I have a 1972 Nova that the lifters have ticked on for about 10 years and it still runs fine.

Vortec 4.3 Ticking that is present at start-up and speeds up as I accelerate, what would cause this?


If you have good oil pressure, a few things come to mind, first it could be a loose rocker, secound it could be a woren or broken rocker, third it could be a weak or calaps lifter. If it sounds like its lower in the engine like around the oil pan it could be a rod or maine problem. But you say its a ticking noise witch leads me to believe its a valve trane problem.

I have a light ticking sound in the engine. Could


hi, to me it sounds like lifter problem if it was a bottom end problem then the noise would be their all the time as this is always surrounded by oil so im thinking lifter as it takes few minutes for the oil to work to the top of the engine correctly.

What you could try is go out and buy some good quality high millage oil this is thicker and protects high millage engines from any oil seal problems and stops any slight tapping noise you hear from the hydraulic lifters. So give that a try first and see how you get on failing that it would be a case of replacing the lifters.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Ticking noise in engine


It sounds like the lifters are still sticking. Change your oil/filter then after 500 miles change it again. Since motor oil has a mild detergents, a couple of changes should hopefully remove any buildup from around the lifters. Do not use "motor flush". Even though your engine is fairly new, it may remove too much buildup and flush it onto your crankshaft bearings. You may try some marvel mystery oil also and I've heard seafoam does a good job, if you can find it. Mine started ticking after using one of the super thick oil additives. I'm still trying to flush that stuff out.

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
