Ticking noise?

over the last few weeks a small but noticible ticking noise has devoloped outa the engine. for those who remember I had my rod bearing replaced last summer, this noise isnt as audible but it still makes me worried. When the car was in last to have the bearings replaced the manager said that they'd warranty them this time w/o a problem, but if brought back again they'd do a full audit on the car. frown I'll post a vid tomorrow so you guys can hear first hand what it sounds like. Anyone here have an idea of what it might be?

sorry that i cant help you man, but i have a problem that you either have experienced or experiencing now.
between 1000 and 1500 rpm, my engine makes a ticking noise. you might say and get over it but i cant cz you get to the rpm range once in a while, its a normal range to launch on and it makes the car sound SOOO CHEAP.

is that the same problem you having?

sorry was a bit in a rush and wasnt too clear.
when im launching, i gas til 1500rpm and then drop the clutch. the rpms drop to almost 1000 then. between 1000-1500rpm my engine makes a ticking noise, just like 10 year old hondas. is that the problem that ur having?
the ticking noise is only there between 1000-1500rpm. i rev the shit out of it and everything is fine.

idiot...lol


[b]here i found a link to some information on it

its called Engine Tapping or Ticking

http://www.jonko.com/forum/diagnosis/noise_engine_rattle.htm

Engine Tap or Tick
Engine tapping or ticking can be the result of a number of things. To accurately determine the cause of your problem, you should listen carefully to when the noise begins and ends, and how it varies (or doesn't) with the speed of the engine. Use the brief diagnostic steps below to find the probable source of your engine noise.

1. Check Your Gas
Make sure you are using the proper gas for your application. Check the owner's manual to find out if your vehicle requires a premium grade of gasoline and if so, use it. Low octane fuels combust more easily than high octane fuels and as such may result in "pre-ignition" or the pinging and rattling that you hear.

2. Check Your Situation
Many times a ping or rattle is the direct result of your engine running a bit hot or under stress. These situations can be caused by driving in high altitudes, uphill, through deserts, or in any othersituation where a load is placed on the engine. If the engine is running hotter than normal due to one of these conditions, the noise may be a direct result. Try using a higer grade fuel when you know you will be driving under stressful conditions in the future.

3. Overheating Elsewhere?
If your vehicle isn't under an unusual load, you may wish to check for other problems in the cooling system. Any issue in the system (from a faulty thermostat, to low fluid in the radiator) can cause the engine to run a bit hotter than normal and result in the pre-ignition ping.

4. Check the Timing
Older cars require that their timing be checked and adjusted periodically (check your manual for details.) If your car hasn't had the necessary work done, take it in to make sure the timing is correctly set. Newer vehicles are computerized and are timed by the onboard system so an issue with timing here will need a mechanic's oversight.

5. Is it Turbocharged?
If your vehicle has a turbocharger, a faulty knock sensor could be the problem. Turbocharged vehicles have a knock sensor that is responsible for keeping the engine from knocking and pinging. Have your mechanic test the sensor and replace if necessary.

6. EGR and More...
If none of the above remedy your situation we suggest taking a look at your EGR valve. If the valve is bad or sticking, or if a hose or wire leading to the EGR is disconnected, this may cause the pinging you hear.






here is another link:


http://ca.autos.yahoo.com/maintain/engine_ticking_noise.html


The valves in your engine need to be adjusted.

There is a lot of sludge in your engine which is stopping oil from circulating properly.

The engine's valve lifters are collapsed.

One or more of the engine's valves are stuck.

my car does it at certain throttle aperatures when the engine's cold. how loud is it? i had to get a new engine because the bearing came loose on one of the rods.(the part where the rod connects to the driveshaft).

if it's really loud, that might be your problem. i say take it to toyota and have them check it out. easier to fix now than later if it causes other problems.

my engine does a similar ticking. it drives me nuts, but I took it to the dealership and they said its just normal. But they did say that if it gets any worse, to let them know so that I could have it checked out, but its stayed the same over about 5 or 6 months.
