Sounds like you have a sticking valve and no adjustment will fix it.You will need to try some fuel treatment that cleans valves and lifters or have it fixed at a shop.

The ticking noise might be from the valves being out of adjustment. Have someone adjust the valves correctly and it will be fine.

What is your gas? You might want to use unleaded or premium. Also, try to change oil.

I tried researching on this one:

The most common cause of this noise is the cam chain tensioner, they stick ( they are supposed to auto adjust) and the cam chain gets loose and makes the same kind of noise as the valves being loose, chased this very same noise for a year before in desperation I replaced the tensioner and the noise went away, replace/ free up the tensioner and enjoy the quite, am not 100% sure but the engine in your bike has 2 cam chain tensioner's, pull them out and make sure they are free to adjust themselves, it is a spring loaded foot that keeps the chain tensioned, if they see sticky replace them as needede.

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.

I have a 2008 Dodge Durango, 94k miles. Every time I start the truck after it sitting for a while (in the mornings or when I am leaving from work), it has a loud ticking noise and the engine sounds really...


Sounds like the valve lifters are taking longer than normal to pump up with pressure. Getting the motor cleaned out and de-sludged would help. also use good quality oil after the cleaning.

Bike has annoying ticking noise from mostly rear cyl..bike is a 2000 shadow spirit, with 33000 miles, i was told valves needed adjustment at 30,000 miles , along with timing chain adj.. is this correct?


Without being able to stand next to the machine and listen it would be very hard to say what the noise is. Valves are generally easy to adjust and if loud have a high pitched tick sound. Cam chain adjusters generally self adjust and are reasonably quiet. If the automatic adjuster goes bad it will generally make a clatter sound or a loud clack. One thing you have not considered, if the the exhaust gaskets in the head go bad or leak air, they can also produce a loud ticking sound. You often hear this sound in older V8 engines. It sounds like a lifter is bouncing around inside the motor but the sound is caused by a blown gasket between the head and exhaust manifold. If you experience some popping/backfiring during deceleration try replacing your exhaust o-rings in the heads. This may solve both problems. If the problem is internal to the cylinder you may need to change a bad cam chain adjuster. As always start with the cheaper fixes and work your way up. Adjust valves and cam chain tensioner if not self adjusting, replace the exhaust gaskets next, and if that does not fix it, replace the cam chain tensioner. Hope this helps.

Motor tick's when warm


What does the "tick" sound like?? The R-RT is an air/oil cooled engine and some noise is normal. If noise is very loud, it could indicate a problem with valve train or any number of other things.

Does noise stop when you pull clutch in with trans. in neutral?

When were the valves last checked/adjusted? Was rocker arm end play checked as well as valve clearance?

Sorry, more questions than answers

I just bought a 2008 Sienna w/ 44,000 miles. When the engine is cold, doesn't have to be really cold, I hear this ticking noise (not loud) when engine is under slight acceleration between 1500- 2000 rpm....


Sounds like you are describing lifter noise. Go to the car store and buy a pint of Berrymen's Chemtool. Next time the engine is cold, pour the Chemtool into the engine oil. Do your normal driving for the next few days or weeks until you have 150-200 miles (none of them should be highway miles) on the engine, then have the oil changed. Drive for 2000-3000 miles, and do the same thing all over again. Repeat this a couple of times. If the lifter loosens up, your good to go. If it doesn't, then it will have to be repaired by tearing into the engine.

A loud ticking noise?


No I would not chase to the pistons, these vehicle were very comon in creating HLA noise hydraulic lash adjusting valves, meaning the valves pump up with oil as the oil gets thinner they dont pump up as fast and create a very loud ticking noise, I would not express a great concern over simplicity, dodge was famous for this, they really were.
