Hi Travis
rythmic ticking noise, seems a hydrolic lifter (valve tappet) check the engine oil level and quality, i think you didnt change the engine oil and filter for long time,
Good Luck

My 95 tahoe has an occasional ticking noise, loss of oil pressure at idle and loss of power


Prognosis is really bad, hate to tell you. Ticking comes from the valve lifters, losing lubrication due to lack of pressure and running dry. At redlights, when revs are at idle, oil pressure drops a lot, and engine really suffers. Have the vehicle taken immediately to a shop for proper diagnose and to see if engine can still be saved. The loss of power comes from the valves not actuating properly. Hydraulic lifters need oil at a decent pressure to "charge" , and if not charged, they will stay compressed, ruining valve lifting operation.

Engine knocking, valve ticking loud in engine, when idle or drivi


Make sure the oil level is good, and have the oil pressure check by a garage or someone who can, by using a external gauge to see what the actual oil press is. Low oil pressure will give you the ticking, start there.

2000 olds van 3.4l engine started ticking Top end? Started suddenly last weekend. 220 000 klicks. timing belt slipped a tooth???


sounds to me maybe a sticky lifter and not building up with oil pressure,try adding 2 quarts of clean diesel fuel to your oil and let idle for about 10-15 minutes,if the ticking stops then change the oil and filter,then it was the lifter not building up with oil pressure
