|whynotthinkwhynot||It might be the tumble flaps which are in the intake manifold. Use the stethoscope trick to make sure it's not in the valve cover. Mine was dead quiet. Then I put it on the intake and got my sound. Sometime, when I have time, I'll pull the intake manifold and do a write-up about it with video. I've been driving it with the noise for probably about 50k miles.|

|kienangeier||I will get back to you on where its coming from. I don't think its the oil because I change it every 5k miles using Mobil 1 Full synthetic 5w-20 with a Bosch Oil filter.|

|felixthecat||Engine ticking? How long have you had the car? When did it start? Have you checked or changed the oil/filter? Where does it sound like it ticking from? top, or underneath, side or what? cold, hot? I'd check the oil 1st.|

2.3L Engine Ticking???
I am thinking that something in my engine needs to be bled but I am not sure. Any suggestions?
