I have a BMW 328xi, 2008, 130 k miles on it, last night it started making a ticking sound from the engine, when I push the accelerator, this am it took about 5 minutes of driving before it started to tick again, oil level says it is moderately down, about 1/4 from the gauge so it appears it the oil is ok? Timing belt? Timing chain? Never replaced these.. ? Any ideas??
