Engine Mechanical problem
2007 BMW 328 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Manual 30,000 miles
My BMW has a valve ticking sound that occurs mostly in the morning when the car is cold. I noticed the noise when I purchased the car and was told it was coming from the valves and it was normal. The engine has been " purged" by the dealer in an attempt to correct the problem but the noise remains. I believe the ticking sound may be do to faulty valve lifters. The dealership says this is normal but I cannot believe that is true. If I try to sell the car or even trade it in any mechanic worth their weight in synthetic oil would be able to tell there is a valve problem. Help!
