Change the exhaust port gaskets also take the heat shield off of the "Y" pipe under the seat that connects the front and bear ex. and look underneath as this area is prone to craking and makes a noise similar to the front ex valve being loose tick tick tick tick...........

Toyota paseo engine ticking


Lifter may be worn or cam lobe is worn and is probably due a timing belt replacement as well.Sounds like just a high mileage problem lots of people complain of valve train noise from these engines its not uncommon. I would use a high mileage engine oil to help with the noise but i am afraid the noise is only going to get worse over time you may look into salvage engine with a warranty or having the engine rebuilt it sounds like it is already burning oil. The valve lash can be adjusted on this engine but if your not a mechanic i do not recommend this, it is very sensitive procedure and can damage the engine permanently. Take it to a shop have them check your valve lash and adjust it for the noise issue to save yourself some time and money on a very costly repair with improperly adjusted valve lash. Remember to rate my solution Thanks in advance.

Whats the ticking sound all of a sudden?


It sounds like a collapsed hydraulic valve lifter- a part of yoiur valve train in the upper engine. You need to have it checked at a shop you trust I don't know of any oil additives that can cure this, although someone here may give you some advice.
Loose valve train noise is common on high-mileage engines, but if it is a collapsed lifter, I think you should have it checked.
A loose timing chain will make a rhythmic slapping sound, but the ticking you describe sounds more like it's in your valve train. Have someone check it.

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

Valve train noise


The ticking sound is most likely caused by uneven wear on the cam lobes. The next time you've got the valve covers off, take a look at the cams and you will likely see scuff marks on one or more of the high-points of the camshaft lobes. This can cause a ticking sound each time that part of the lobe comes in contact with the rocker arm. The only cure for this would be to replace the cam and rocker arms - which is not worth the many $$ it will cost. The noise may be annoying, but isn't anything to worry about. My Goldwing started making a ticking sound at about 90,000 miles - and continues to this day, now with more than 169,000 miles on the engine.
Uneven cam lobe wear can also cause lateral movement of the rocker arms - and a ticking sound as the rockers move slightly sideways on their shafts (note the springs on the shafts that hold the rockers lightly to one side).
I should also mention that pitted valve stem tips can also cause a ticking noise. In any event, do not run the engine with less than the specified .004" valve tappet clearance as this can cause valve damage and compression loss.

1998 ford expadition ticking noise ,sound like valve spring broke slightly rough idel loss of power. oil pressure good every thing seems fine.


have your engine valve tappets adjusted to its specified adjustment by a competent mechanic then if the noise is still there then you need to have the engine timing checked. if these doesnt solve the problem then you need to pulldown the cylinder head to inspect the camshaft condition...

Ticking noise from engine


You might have a bad hydraulic valve lifter (assuming this engine has them)... you could try an aftermarket product designed to unstick valve lifters.... any auto parts store carries them.

Ticking noise


Do this first: Change the oil. I recommend Havoline, or Valvoline 10w30. Make sure to use a GOOD quality oil filter(WIX only). Then buy a can of "Seafoam". Follow the instructions exactly! After 500 miles, repeat the process(except for the "Seafoam"). The "Seafoam" should help to clean up any carbon or junk in the engine. When you change the oil again, add "LubeGuard Engine Treatment". This should help stave off the engine replacement blues.
