Hi all,

I was just wondering about the ticking noises from the engine.

The valves can tick, I know, but how loud is that? Can you hear the valves when you're inside the car? At idle, when driving?

I can hear distinct ticking when the engine is running and I stand next to the engine. Seem to come from the fuel injection rail. This would be injector noise, right?

Just wondering....

Some of the injectors do make noise.The lifters tapping is a load metal tapping noise.The injectors are a low type tapping.

From INSIDE the car?
Are you sure it's not the seat-belt warning ticking?
