At the begining of last summer my car developed a tick on cold starting but it disapeared by the end of the summer. Anyhoo the ticking has started again, when I start the car from cold its quiet as a mouse then after about a minute its starts really loudly ticking, say a tick and a half a second. Now i'm guessing one of my lifters has bitten the dust could it be anything else?
if it is a lifter is there anyway of working out which one is duff as I dont fancy buying 24 new ones one only one is probably buggered
thanks in advance for any advice
