A ticking sound that gets louder as the engine warms up usually is an indication of the valves need adjustment. The clearance between the valve stem and the tappet on the rocker arm will get larger over time and needs a periodic adjustment. The cam chain can make noise as well, but "usually" more of a continuous noise that will change with rpm's (may quieten when accelarating/deccelerating). If it is the valve clearance, it is not an immediate concern, but should be adjusted to prevent unnecessary wear on the tappet/stem. Another way to tell is if it quitens somewhat with an oil change. Newer oil will provide more of a dampening effect on the contact between the stem and tappen, thus reducing the noise.

Michael, check your engines oil level right away, low or dirty oil is the main cause. Other things that can cause this issue could be worn or dirty cam lifters or tappets, exhaust leak, loose worn timing chain, possible EGR valve cracked or leaking at base, bad belt or tension er, the list could go on.

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,

I've got a slight ticking noise, but not at start-up. After the engine warms up, it will start out very faint and gradually get louder. After about 2 - 3 minutes, it goes away. This is a High M


This sounds like a tappet (cam follower/rocker arm) is at max clearance. This can be the sign of cam lobe wear or follower wear on its internal clearances or valve tip wear.

Grinding nose from timing cover and a tick from valve cover could that tick be chain slap or is the 2.4 a no tolarince motor


The Tick is more likely worn lifters and cam. The grinding noise is most likely the timing chain guide is worn out or broken. Possibly a bad timing chain Tensioner. That IS an interference engine.

We know honda has the famous ticking noise from the engine but mine ticks louder. i dont thinking thats the timing chain. ant suggestion?


If it isn't the cam chain then it is most likely a ticking valve tappet. Have the valves adjusted and inspect the cam lobes for damage or scuffing.

Ticking from ingine while decelerating or not having torque


Continue to follow the proper "break in" procedures for new engine parts. Give the new parts a chance to wear themselves in a little bit, but also stop by the shop and tell them your concern. They can listen as well and see if they think it may be right or not. Note: the last valve job I did (6cyl. car) took about 500 miles to completely smooth out. (That's only two tanks of gas.)
