    Default Loud ticking from engine

    Ive recently noticed a loud ticking sound coming from the engine which gets worse as the engine gets warm. My mechanic think that the hydraulic lifters are sticking but isnt 100% sure. Has anyone else had this issue?

    What would i be looking to change if it is the lifters and how expensive of a job will this be?

    what mileage is it on? Might be worth using some engine flush to clean it out and then put some good oil in?

    Hmm. Some engines are just noisier than others, I wouldn't worry about it too much.
