Ticking is usually from the rocker arms either sticking or wearing out. These parts need a constant suppy of oil to keep them going. You may have sludge built up in your engine causing this. My reccomendation is to bring it to a garage that can do a oil treatment and oild change. Put high milage oil in it. If it keeps ticking after wards you may have to have the rocker lifter adujusted or replaced.

We have a 2002 ford windstar the air will not blow out of the vents on stead it blows out of the defroster


your concern is caused by a broken vacuum line. there is a supply line that supply vacuum to the heater control head,m the switches direct vacuum to the actuators to make them pull doors open inside heater plenum. if engine is running and very quiet inside, you may hear a sucking noie coming from where the line is brokn, you can "sleeve" the hard plastic line with a piee of rubber vacum line, dont be afraind to look/listen under hood if you dont find under dash, although most likely line cracked under dash

Can someone please help me know how to open (un-screw) the dashboard of Maruti Alto car? (I am getting some constant noice from Dashboard side. Sounds like something inside is loose now, and that keep...


There are several models of the ALTO and the dash varies from one model to another.
You need to look for two mounting screws at the extreme ends , the fittings of the AC, system needs to be checked.
But to look for noise you can use a good inspection lamp to probe within , start or run the car with help as you observe and listen to find the noise. It can be a loose screw which can be taken out using a magnet or maybe if the speedo cable is loose.( old model)

Ticking noice gets louder when warm


If it goes tick, tick, tick, you might be low on oil or your lifters may be pecking. It is usually a sign of low oil or engine damage in the block. Check your fluid first. It may be a quart or two low. If not, it will need fixed eventually. That is up to you.

Engine noise


The ticking may have been related to the low dirty oil condition, did you get proof of regular service? the engine in your truck does have some history of oil consumption problems, but I think by 05 they where fixed by Ford, the ticking is either the cam chain or the cam followers, never heard anything called a camshaft phaser, and I have worked for a Ford dealer 20 years. Abnormal oi use is anything over 1 quart US for every 1000 miles of driving, a little more if you drive in hot weather conditions. Put a can of Berrymans Chemtool in the oil, this may help to clean the inside of the engine, also make sure to run either 10-30W or lighter in the engine, heavier oils will cause bearing damage.

Ac compressor. is making a ticking noice


This is normal, the compressor is spun by the fan belt, and when everything equalizes the pulley stops moving. This repeats over and over again.
