Hi,

The ticking noise that you are hearing is a valve lifter which may have a lubricating problem.

The only way to be sure is to check the valve clearance and the one valve which is out of the clearance value will be the one which is making the ticking sound.

In most case's you need to remove the valve lifter and dismantle then clean it and relube it with a vavle lifter lube then refit and adjust the clearance.

Let me know if you need more information.

Thanks

Jason

Hello, thanks for acceptinmg my help. this noise is caused by a defective bleeding down hydraulic valve lifter, u don't say what engine so if u plan to do this rather involved job need to know what engine u have, below is a picture of a typical hydraulic lifter used in the 4.7 Liter V8 engine of this year.

2006 cts 2.8 making loud ticking noise ,running rough and has misfire codes po300,301,303,305


codes p 300 is a random/ multiple misfire===causes spark plugs---HT leads ---injectors/s--ignition coil/s--low compression---wiring
codes p 301,303,305 are misfires detected for no 1,3 5 cylinders === causes listed are engine mechanical fault---wiring---ignition/fuel systems ---injectors---ECT/MAF sensors---ECM
You do not mention if this is a v6 engine in which case no 1,3 5 will be all in the one bank head
With the loud ticking noise that amounts to a mechanical fault associated with that bank
could be loose valve seat inserts , cam lobes failure or cam follower failure or hydraulic lifters problem even loose cam shaft bearings / caps
I would be inclined to remove the rocker cover and check for metal , loose bolts , excessive valve clearance before I went plugs etc
the main indicator for the answer is the loud ticking noise which indicates a valve train problem which will cause the rough running

Ticking in engine


The rocker arm has to be set perfectly so as to not be TOO TIGHT or TOO LOOSE.. TOO tight and it will miss/shake/vibrate ... too loose and it will TICK/make noise and not run well...

I have a 2003 Chevy Impala. I ran my car with no oil and now I'm hearing a loud ticking/knocking noise coming from under my valve cover. I added 2 bottles of oil after finding out that I didnt have any...


might be the valves have been damaged running without oil
- or the crankshaft / camshaft / main bearings
most probably you have to let the engine be rebuilt by a mechanic
(expect cost of more than US$ 2.000)
or get another (used) engine at a scrapyard 2003-chevy-wutfveiel3ypko01ydor435x-5-0.jpg 2003-chevy-wutfveiel3ypko01ydor435x-5-2.jpg

Oil consumption, rattle, engine noise


Check under the hood and inspect the valve cover gasket. If it's bad it would explain why you don't see any leaks on the ground because it's probably burning off on the manifold. This ticking you're hearing is a lack of lubrication to the rocker arms. Apart from the valve cover gasket, you should get under the car and inspect the oil pan and oil filter for seepage. Best of luck on your problem.

Knocking or ticking in the engine, under the valve cover ticking under valve cover in 94 cavalier i think it is the rocker arms


you are right its either a rocker arm broken or loose or it also could be a broken valve spring so look for all three While you have the valve cover off to save you coming back and looking again ... thanks Jerry

3.1L engine ticking noise


This a piston slap. GM recognised this problem years ago but instead of repairing 100,000 motors they call it "normal". If it goes away after warm up you should be ok to keep driving it.

Valve cover problem


If your mechanically inclined you'll be alright, but by the sounds of it, your not even sure what that part is, ( no offence intended) so if that's the case, yes I would have it done, but don't be afraid to get a quote first.(Repairpal.com) quotes $78-$127 which includes parts & labor. Usually small garage's on low price end, and dealerships on high end.
