View Full Version : Problem Help! Kinda Long

06-12-2007, 10:47 AM
When my car gets warmed up you start to hear a clicking/ticking sound that gets really annoying and doesn't sound very well. I took it to a mechanic to take a look at it and he pulled the valve cover and he said everything was fine so he changed the oil and cleaned out the pick up. Everything ran fine for about a month and then it came back once again. So I'm guessing it's something oil related possibly sludge, and it only happens after the car reaches normal temp. I was thinking about sea foaming it but not sure?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

could still be a valve problem.. this the ticking go up in tempo when you throttle? more rmp more tiking? or is it always the same?

It sounds like a roller coaster going up to like 2500rpms and then you can't hear it but at idle after driving it for a while it sounds like I need oil but i really don't. Basically more ticks with higher rpms up to about 2500.
