Question about 1996 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
Maybe a hydraulic lifter or a central bearing.... do you hav trouble accelarating at all? if its they hydraulic lifter, you will be fine for about 90k miles and even then nothing serious will happen, its just annoying. if its the central bearing on your motor, then you will have anywhere from 0-3000 miles left until your engine shuts down on you and your car stops moving. for me it's the hydraulic lifter witch triggered the knock sensor, which is there to detect knocks for oil related problems but unfortunaetly picked up my knocking too and thus went into its "energy saving" mode and slowed accelaration down ALOT in order to protect my motor. of course since it was a hydraulic lifter, this was pointless to me. if this is your case just take it to a mechanic and pay $40 to get the knock sensor unplugged. this won't solve the knocking itself but it will allow the car to accelarate at w/e speed you want. THIS IS NOT the solution to every knocking/ticking problem. there are MANY different ones out there so the best way is to get it checked out by a mechanic.
