Subtle ticking noise
Gentlemen, I have a 93 w/auto trans. In the last couple days I've noted a ticking noise when the car is in a standstill, transmission in D, brakes applied, and in an uphill. Should I apply fuel to move the car, shift away from D (to N, P, and R), or release the brakes the sound disappears. In a level or down-hill road no noise at all, only in an up-hill. The sound is a subtle ticking regular sound, with no grinding or irregular patterns. The noise tempo seems to be RPM related and develops somewhere under the hood.
