i thought that the ticking sound was the injectors, so i replaced all of them at a big cost, but the ticking was still there after doing a bit of looking around i found that it was the hydraulic lifters sticking, along with the push rods getting sticky as well.which is why you should never use castrol magnatic oil, but anyway after replacing all of the items listed , the car is like one in a billion coz it dont bloody tick now

thats why it's a good idea to use an engine oil flush at every oil change, keeps the gunge buildup from happening etc in the lifter and keeps things quiet. but it's probably to late if it's already ticking like 99.5% do
