ok - is it a ticking noise from the top of the engine? how long have you owned the vehicle, is it a new noise? These engine are known for excessive injector ticking noise

I think the time might be off

take a large long screwdriver and place it on different areas of the engine the noise is coming from and put your ear up to the top of the screw driver - it will help you pinpoint the location of the noise

And it's in the center of the motor

ok lets get some basic info here - how many miles are on the vehicle? Auto or Manual Transmission. How long have you owned it? is this a noise that just started? Have you checked all the pulleys and bearing?

I would hate to have you chasing a normal injector noise - you could spend a lot of money only to find out it normal
