my engine is making a ticking noise, but it seems to be coming from the injectors. is this likely? it could be tappet noise, but i don't think it is coming from the cam cover, sounds more like its from the back of the engine.
there is a kind of knocky sound coming from the cam area, makes it sound a bit like a diesel. that's not right is it? the thing is still smooth (especially around 2.5-3k rpm) enough to make my mum think it's a 'nice car', but pokey enough to make my mates think it's a 'nice car', so i'm not that worried.... but should i be?
i suppose what i'm really asking is; how noisy are ecotecs?
