    Default Random Ticking noise at startup 2.2 Direct

    Guys (and girls!) I hope you can shed some light.

    I have a 55 (2006) Vectra 2.2 Direct SRI. When I startup from cold I get a random ticking noise from the left(ish) side of the engine, I'd tried running Wynns lifter juice through it but hasnt changed much. What could it be? I'm hearing alot of horror stories re timing tensioners and the like, but would that kind of noise be all the time??

    Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sounds just like this youtube vid I found
    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d756DQ0M0fc&feature=player_embedded"]Vectra z22se ticking - YouTube[/ame] and goes away after 5 mins or so

    That definetly is the symptoms of the timing chain/tensioners on there way out better to get it checked ASAP before it throws it and causes damage.
