If it isn't the cam chain then it is most likely a ticking valve tappet. Have the valves adjusted and inspect the cam lobes for damage or scuffing.

Ticking noise in engine .louder when warm.is it the cam chain


A ticking sound that gets louder as the engine warms up usually is an indication of the valves need adjustment. The clearance between the valve stem and the tappet on the rocker arm will get larger over time and needs a periodic adjustment. The cam chain can make noise as well, but "usually" more of a continuous noise that will change with rpm's (may quieten when accelarating/deccelerating). If it is the valve clearance, it is not an immediate concern, but should be adjusted to prevent unnecessary wear on the tappet/stem. Another way to tell is if it quitens somewhat with an oil change. Newer oil will provide more of a dampening effect on the contact between the stem and tappen, thus reducing the noise.

I own a 2004 dodge intrepid and it has about 180,000 miles on it. i recently replaced the water pump, oil pump and the timing chain. now when i got the timing chain fixed some how it was not put on...


it is possible that when the timing chain was incorrectly fitted that damage was done to the cam lobes or followers and that is the ticking noise
the oil recommended is too light for a used engine so go to 20w 40 or 30w 50
take it to an accredited repair shop for a proper diagnosis

A loud ticking noise?


No I would not chase to the pistons, these vehicle were very comon in creating HLA noise hydraulic lash adjusting valves, meaning the valves pump up with oil as the oil gets thinner they dont pump up as fast and create a very loud ticking noise, I would not express a great concern over simplicity, dodge was famous for this, they really were.

Loud tick & knocking for a 1zzfe engine from 2001 toyota corolla


from what you are describing it sounds like a lifter/valve issue, i am a ford man i don't know if toyota do the same thing, but if they use inserts for the valve seats it is possible a valve seat has been dropping just has not dropped fully out to cause engine damage. buying a new engine will actually cost you less than an overhaul/rebuild anymore. the parts will cost you almost as much as a new motor will with all the machining that maybe needed.

Engine noise


and it is brand new only 75 miles on it when i got it. At the 600 mile mark i did the valve adjustment and changed the oil, after another 100-150 miles, the normal ticking that you get from the motor started getting louder. I checked the adjustment on the valves again, they were good to go, and after another 50 miles or so i changed the oil again to make sure there were no metal flakes in the oil, which there werent. Do the 250's just get a little noisier as tehy break in? It seems to me its coming from the bottom end. It has automatic cam chain tensioners, so i dont think its that, and i have checked to make sure everything is tight like it should be. The ticking does go along with engine speed, and at 55-60 mph you can just barely hear it over the wind and road noise. I have worked on cars for several years, and i know some engines are just normally loud or ticky, but this is my first bike that i have ever really messed with. This normal for this bike? ,i had a 82 yamaha 650 and with 40,000 miles it was the quitest bike i ever had. i realize that doesnt really compare to ur bike but i wouldnt expect an engine to be louder after that few a miles. i would really suggest finding a forum especially for your bike (theres bound to be one) and asking around, its really a bike to bike difference ,,,
