I was driving along and this later model ss ute pulled up beside me, so i thought... aw yeah. I lost of course but the old vp 5L kept up just fine, i was proud :'( she copped a good flog for about 10 minutes or so. I lifted the bonnet when i got home and noticed a slight tick from the top, only noticeable when you lift the bonnet. Any idea's, and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
prob just the injectors ticking,
P.S dnt flog your car bro, look after them as there getting old and personaly idd like to see more of these cars on the road other than seein them smashed up at the wreckers!.
prob just in injectors, wouldnt stress over it!
Injectors, lifter, or a broken manifold exhaust gasket.
does this get worse or just a common thing?
lifters get worse. injectors are always noisy and heaps of people complain about them. get a screwdriver and put the tip to an injector and your ear to the head. if that's the ticking you hear, there is no problem
