ka "ticking" noise
Posted 28 November 2008 - 12:33 AM
The ticking doesnt get any louder, though is very noticeable especially when sat at junctions n traffic lights getting a few unwanted stairs, ticking car + london streets
now the garage I got it from have done a service and MOT just need 1 new rear tyre, thats the only problems, asked for them to check the cam belt(done over 60k miles so was due one) though they told me it was a chain(dont know a great deal about cars) reading up on the net, the timing chain could be hitting the guards so will have a mate look at that for me tommorow.
My main concern is the timing chain(which im assuming it is) whats the damage? The garage is a good 50miles away and if its fixable for under £40-50 I dont see the point in wasting my time to drive there using petrol / time..
Thanks for your advice to whoever tries to help me out!

it could be that the tappits require adjustment, these should be checked approx every 10,000 miles. about 1/2 hr work for a good mechanic.
thanks for your reply and thats exactly what it was, they said within a month or two it would get louder to what it was originally so there isnt much point in getting it done unless its driving you mad (though I cant hear it to much) but getting it done to be on the safe side and to stop the unwanted looks thanks for your advice.

Rather worried about it so rang the garage who supplied me the car, they are giving me a car to use for the time being. So something that 2 garages have said is nothing, turns out it could be something serious, someone said on the phone if it has hydrolics they could all need replacing, so im rather confused :\
