50K miles and a loud ticking has developed


Recommended Posts

I did a search but all I found was trans related. I notice it when stopped at traffic lights. Mine doesn't change when the clutch pulled in. I usually kick it into neutral when coming to a stop (depends on situation, no lectures). I just had an annual service done, runs great. Smoother than it's ever been. Could it be the cam chain tensioners? OR?

Gene, could be any number of things.. Can you tell if it is engine speed or ½ engine speed?


Can you tell what side,, or if out near the cyl heads or more internal to the crankcase?


Might be as simple as a slightly loose valve or excess side play in a rocker arm.. Could be timing tensioner or timing chain related.. Could even be alternator belt or balance shaft related..


You nee to define the area it is coming from & what frequency related to engine speed..
