Just bought a 2004 dodge neon for our grand daughter. It has 76000 miles. Within 2 weeks we have started hearing a knocking/ticking noise. It is back at the dealer now. What could it be.

Can this model be put on a computer that will tell them what it is?

Low oil level or pressure comes to mind. Any Lights on the dash lit up?

Knocking and ticking oh my; not usually too good. It's back at the dealer and where I come from he fixes it for free or gets reported to the dealers association,the Better Business Bureau and the Ministry of Consumer and Corporate Affairs if he doesn't stand 100% behind a 2 week old sale. I HOPE YOU HAVE THE SAME TYPE of PROTECTION

a ticking could be a valve out of adjustment or badly worn.
