Vs
G’day,
About a week ago I had the head gaskets on my vs ute replaced.
Since then it’s been making a tickatickatick sound on idle and up to about 45km/r.
Doesn’t seem to be affecting performance at all, just curious as to what it could be.
Didn’t make this noise before the gaskets were fixed.
Other people have noticed it when I pull up. Will be chatting to the mechanic about it of course, just wondering if anyone had an idea what might be causing it. Hopefully not another expensive repair, just laid out $1200 on the old banga
