Tick Tick Tick

I have a 1992 Sedan V6 3.2L and it ticks! After driving mildly hard and sitting at idle it ticks. A friend tells me it's a valve lifter getting stuck. I have no idea. Input please!!

sounds like your typical "speed" scenerio.

don't drive over 50

but incase you do, stay above 50. now listen, there should be a panel under your seat. you're gonna wanna lay down on this panel with a relatively hot chick...and escape under the car. for dramatic effect, aim your car at a 747 and you should be all set.

? haha i dint get it at first, i was like this guy is crazy!
anyways, about ur ticking. make sure u have plenty of oil. cuz about a week or 2 ago, i noticed some loud ticking, so i go to check my oil, it there was hardly any in ther! i dont know how it happened. im not burning any oil and not leaking any at all. i figure its probly gotta do with my BHG that i am now repairing.if it is not ur oil level, then take it to a shop and get it fixed. or if ur mechanicly inclined buy a helms and DIY.
peace

ok i tried searching it but i cant find it. there was a thread that the valve could have a 'build up' cause it to tick...
the solution?
it was something like add 1/3 qt of atf oil, yes tranny oil. drive a lil while like 10mins or so, then change engine oil.
the reason is because theres a detergent in atf oil that will break wat ever is built up by the valves.

Don't worry about it, its not sticking. It is your valve lifters that is ticking. My ride is also ticking when idling, then when i rev it up a bit the ticking speed increases. I had a couple mechanics check it out and they say that its okay. Just add a bottle of some thickening oil stuff like cd2 or whatever when you change the oil. That should quiet it down some. My car has just the right amount of oil, yet the ticking is still there. They says its okay, so I am no longer worried or stressing over it.

I know i have no right to be here and tell someone else to do but....Dont put atf in your crankcase. It cleans out the engine so good that it makes it so that the oil doesent bond to the metal and causes friction and makes other problems. This can result in a blown head gasket. a major problem with the g2 legends.

Yea the ticking is normal.... After driving or cold start, but it goes away. I don't think the ticking is as bad as a G1, but seriously, it's nothing to worry about... --=Keith

The ATF is supposed to go into the intake. On old cars with carbs, it was easy, just get a buddy to keep the car engine running, while you poured a half quart of ATF through the carb. Then pour the rest in suddenly. The car stalls. Start it up a half hour later, and it was supposed to have absolutely clean valve stems and guides.

the smoke in the neighbourhood was simply awesome.

Car 1: 1990 cr-x soon 94 legend


iTrader Score: 0 reviews
maybe your valves just need adjusting i know my crx does it and i should prob adjust them soon but usually after my car warms up it goes away i think you guys are talking about decarboinizing the engine if im not mistaken u can also take off the fpr and use a hose and put a gal or so of water and let it suck it up that way it will also clean your engine or theres carb cleaner just take off the cold air or what not and spray inside the tb while the car is running just dont do it at a idle
