With all due respect, how about re posting your question in plain well typed English so we can understand.
They are meant to use 5w 30 but perhaps get it to your local mechanic for a full check is my best advice to you.
The tick could just be anything????
It’s impossible to diagnose a tick in the engine without being there and listening to it.
Did you follow the books and use the correct oil.
NEVER loan your car to ANYBODY.
Wishing you well.

I can change the oil in my VE in less than 10 minutes, and I undo the sump plug without lifting the car, just reach under and use the appropriate...
You read and follow the books and the correct oil needs to be changed twice a year plus the filter.
Does your book with the car say 5.w30?
I’ve never bothered with all the injection cars I’ve had since the ‘80s.
I’ve given them a couple of tanks of 98 octane fuel once or twice a year...
It's in your books that come with all cars.
I do hope O/P lets us know how he got on when it was time to present his vehicle for inspection.
Yep. Front and rear.
I'm wondering if this is just another troll post?
No idea...But under the power button would be a good place to start looking.
I intend to do nothing at this stage other than take a close look at that plate inside and outside now and then.
Next time we are out in the rain,...
Just took a look at mine from under the bonnet.
It’s perfectly dry and what I can see there is no sign of rust on that plate.
Well well what a disturbing post this is.
I got my decent torch out, pulled that part back exposing the metal, and all there is on my VE is black...

If you don’t have a manual/books with the that’s a worry.
Why would you buy one like that?
Pleased to see some serious drinking going on. I'm proud of y'all.
Just common old Corona long necks here at the moment. But it's okay.
Hi Losh, I intend to give it to an auto place regardless in the next couple of years. To me that makes sense.
Time is what I thought also Forg, but the fluid still looks good and smells like it should hence me asking someone who knows.
My 10 year old VE has only done 41,000 kms and just as a matter of interest I had a mechanic who does autos drive it the other day.
First thing he...
As your borrowing said vehicle make sure it has PROPER insurance before you even put a hand on it.
Sounds very much like a job for your local mechanic.
May I suggest very strongly your de facto needs to take your vehicle to where it needs to be fixed as he/she has damaged it, and must pay for it.
She’s gotta learn how to stick it right in hard.
Lovely little chappy that Benji.
Oh noooooooo. Not again.
Please stay at school and do some more learning on writing, and how to put words together.
It takes all types you know.

Have you checked your coolant level, and what colour is it?
Time will probably help a little.
Poor devil. Not very smart, was he.
Little did he know we knew where he was as we had tracked him.
Is it engine or transmission fluid?
