Ticking noise!


Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

 

Help would be greatly appreciated here, am looking at a JDM STI hatch back for sale. Car is beautiful and loads of history from Japan and UK.

Car has a really consistent tick at idle, I think it could be the lifters, I've been told by the dealer + past owner that the car has sat for about 3 months and prior to that was barely driven.

Ive asked for an oil change to see if that helps with the noise as I think the oil may have degraded over time and hasn't been regularly pumped around!

 

Does anyone have any advice/think it is anything different!

 

Cheers 

Nick

That sounds loud, does it get less obvious when it gets warm? 

That's the only video i managed to get, was less obvious once it had warmed up.

Could be the lifters, maybe piston slap? Though not sure it's the latter though. 

If it was my money, I would be a bit hesitant or asking for a big discount.
