engine valvetrain ticking
have a 2010 1ss with manual trans. has 300 miles on it. im not sure if it was there before but i pulled into my garage i now here a intermitent ticking noise from the engine. i let it idle and it appears to be heard from the bottom of the engine. engine oil checked and is full and a.c. is off, no accessorys running. no mods done to car. car was bought new. ticking goes away with revs but as soon as it idles down i can here it. theres no pattern or repitition but is constant ticking. any ideas?????? its not extremely loud. the ticking sounds like when you shut the motor off and you hear the exhaust and piping pop as it cools, thats what it sounds like but it makes this noise while the engine is running. is it possible? thats the best i can describe it. anyone else listen to their car and hear the same thing?? i only hear it at idle.
