|boardgeneration||The shop did find the rear main seal is leaking. But it's not bad so I figure ill deal with it till I need a clutch change. Makes no sense paying $500-600 in labor just for a $40 seal.|

^^That is a cool idea, Im running to the shop to see what they came up with. They dropped my oil pan at my request to fix a leak, however , they want to make sure it's not the rear main seal. If they had time to look into the noise I'll go from there.
Thanks for the replies. I'll search build threads to get an idea of cost to rebuild. But that is worst case scenario. I'm hoping its something simple.
Edit: I was able to see under the car up on the lift. The oil pan was pulled and I personally inspected the internals that I could see.
Everything looked good and the shop agreed. If it's anything, it's on the top end. I'll see how it sounds after I get it back today.

|felixthecat||Just for the heck of it= Grab a big straight edge screw driver, start the motor & put the end of the screwdriver where you think its noisey & put your ear to the handle end of the screwdriver & then move the screwdriver around & listen for different tones or noises.|

I have a couple different types of fluid pumps here at work. Ive rebuilt many of them due to bearing wear so I know the sound of a bad bearing. The sound I'm hearing is similar to bad bearing noise. I guess it's more of a rattle and not really a tick.
I was merely asking what to expect to budget for a build up if I find something serious. I certainly not going to be throwing money at it right at the moment without investigating more. Im not a mechanic but I do most of my own repairs within my ability.
I'm changing the oil and filter again just to eliminate any issue there. Maybe I bought a defective filter. Cheap insurance. The shop is looking into it a bit more as well to help diagnose it.
I would eventually like to turbo it, so a build wouldn't be a total waste anyway. I would also love the experience to tare down and rebuild a motor once in my lifetime anyway.

|AllCarFan||So you heard a tick and without diagnosing it, you are contemplating a complete rebuild?|

It actually started around the time I did my last oil change. About 1000 miles ago.
It's not a typical tick like the injectors make. It sounds like its down under the valve cover in the drivers side. Like maybe a cam bearing or something.
Ill post a bit more when I get to talk to my mechanic later.

|felixthecat||You do have solid lifters you know. Ticking= how 'bout your injectors? How many miles? I wouldn't build it up= stick a 23 in it. Like said above change your oil/filter & drive it.|
