ticking noise under my engine?

ok the file format of these files are off of my phone...they are *.3gp..never heard of that format but they open fine with quicktime.

crappy quality but u can still hear the ticking noise..might need to turn down your speakers..I have headphones so I cant say much for speakers..anyway it sounds like its either coming from my belt area or near my cat..its more dominant on the passenger side.

Right-click and save then open with quicktime

I couldn't get the vid to play either. :-(

I had an odd ticking under the hood one day after I had checked my fluid levels (oil, transmission, etc) and found that the noise was coming from the oil dipstick. I removed the dipstick & turned it 90 degrees, slid it back in and it didn't tick anymore.

Quicktime didn't like me opening that with it, I used WMP 10 or 11 and it worked fine.

As for the tick, i would have no clue what that sound is.

I could not open it... But first. Check your oil level. Next.... If it sounds like valve or lifter noise try a little Marvel mystery oil, or sea foam.

An old porsche trick we used to use was to drain the oil. Then refill with 2 quarts of ATF (yes ATF) and 3 quarts of 5w30 oil. Run the Car at idle for 10 minutes with then drain and refill with oil. The ATF was a detergent and it really cleaned up all the valves, and the Hydraulic lifters.
