    Recently noticed a slight "ticking" while idling/driving. Replaced the air filter and cleaned the MAF today. Had the hood up and really noticed the "ticking" noise.

    Anybody know whats going on? Here is a video for reference.

    does it change in pitch or freqency when you accelerate?

    from my experience lifters start to chatter on 100k vehicles that arent allowed to warm up properly on cold mornings.

    I hear 2 different noises.
    The “Normal Tick” and a different more a “knock” sound.
    The knock sound isn’t what I’d call normal, maybe one of the techs on here that deal with these engines daily have heard this before?
