Audible ticking noise while idling
Hi guys I have a 1991 Escort I bought from my neighbor for 50 bucks as he just wanted it out of his yard. It ran beautifully for about two months, then after an oil change, spark plug change, air and fuel filter change, I have an audible tick in the engine only while idling. The noise goes away while driving but the car misses like crazy throughout all the gears. It is a 1.9L. Any ideas?
pull valve cover off,see if a rocker is off,was a common problem on this engine.
Sounds like the tappets mate. they under air filter n rocker cover. common prob nothing to worry about.
bet a rocker has came off.
