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,

Ticking sound engine

Sounds like you need to have your valves checked and adjusted. Do it sooner rather than later. This can eventually cause serious damage to the engine if not taken care of.

I have a 2005 nissan altima. Which I hate, we've had nothing but problems with this car and now it is making a ticking noise which seems to be coming from the right side of the engine. Also it seems to...

A lot of times a ticking sound is the valves, which usually means a valve job when it gets bad enough.

But if it is a gentler tick sound it could be what is know as a wrist pin knock, which in some cases is not a big deal and others a big deal.

If the sound gets louder and louder, you will have to do something about it. But if it stays pretty constant then you monitor it, and look for other indications such as losing power, excessise oil use, etc.

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.

The left of the engine has a small light ticking sound. The Technicians states that it is the characteristics in the motor. I want to know if in fact is this is true?

I.m having to guess which motor 3.3 or 3.0 but left or motor leaves out the 4 cyclinder. The ticking sound can be checked and there a some noises that are normal but their not very loud. You can change the oil and filter and right as it starts does it somewhat louder and then almost go away? Then is the engine warms up you get to hear it better? Does the sound go right along with engine speed? Can you run the engine breiftly with the fan belt removed and the sound is the same? If the sounds doesn't change with engine speed it might not matter if it changes as the engine heats up you might be able to change the kind of oil or the wheight and it'll be quieter or gone. If the sound is steady and goes along with engine speed and as the engine goes faster( reved up) and it doesn't get louder or goes away then your adviser might be right that it's a sound that they all make. To test this find someone with a car like yours and listen to it. Used car dealers and new car dealers may have a car just like yours and ask to road test the car if you like it you might trade cars.

FIAT PUNTO. Ticking for short period following start up

Definitely change your oil every 3 months or 3000 miles. After you change it add a half cup of Lucas engine oil suppliment when the engine is hot.
If if goes away you know it's cam or lifter issue. If it doesn't the ticking you hear may simply be your fuel system.
