when i start the car,there is a non stop ticking sound like over and over. at a pretty fast speed. tick tick tick tick tick tick tick tick....... and over and over. what oculd it be??please help. oculd it have to do with oil??
Possibly lifters. Is it RPM dependant? As in, when you rev the engine, does the ticking go faster as well? Does it continue as long as the engine is running, or just for the first few seconds, then fades away?
The lifters on my Jetta tick for a few seconds after a very-cold start, but once the oil pressure comes up, they are quiet again.
If/when it gets worse, I'll replace them.
