    Default Loud ticking sound help !!

    Hi all,

    Has anyone come across a problem where as the engine produces a loud ticking sound on accelration and sometimes during warm up in the mornings? i was thinking it was a lasy lifter (not ruled out yet) but could it be a injector?

    The sound is speed relatated and really sounds like a fault hydralic lifter.

    K,,

    I see from your profile that you have a 1.9 CDTi; these have quite noisy injectors in my experience. Especially when cold.

    If it's speed related then maybe you're right it could be a lifter.

    The weak lifter sounds good to me...but in my experience ( which is not too big ) they stop cliking few secs after start up...I`v never had a faulty lifter cliking on acceleration

    if its really clogged though, it wont fill with oil and thereby tick all the time. I dont see how speed would have a bearing if its an injector or lifter, as surely they are working at the same engine speed.

    But if its clogged that bad, the engine would have a major service pending I might guess

    found out today the the loud ticking/knocking only starts around 3000 rpm+ i have the car booked in to a local garage next week. They have a rolling road so it should be easy to show the fault to them.

    Thanks for the replys..
