    There is a ticking noise that my truck is making when it is edling. I this it sounds like a vavle or something. Maybe it is just all in my head. I ran some fuel cleaner though it but I did not notice a differance . Does any one have any ideas. Sounds like it is coming from the side of the motor.

    I've seen some post about this before, I'm pretty sure it's normal.

    It's a timer in the engine counting down the seconds to the next recall.

    It's some valve mounted by the intake, rubber washers can help the noise...search ticking engine and you'll probably find a thread about it.

    Hey, I try. I love humor especially the sarcastic kind. So thanks for the big compliment!:D:D:D

    OMG, I hope you didn't just read this at work!:eek: Quick, tell them you're not feeling well and have to go home. I think they'll understand.:D

    Okay, I'll quit before I get you in any more trouble. I'll just go back to driving thru my mud puddle over and over...woohoo
