2001 Pontiac Grand Prix 6 cyl Automatic 70000 miles
Only have had the car for 3 months. Lower intake gaskets were replaced upon purchase do to a slight seeping. Didn't seem like anything to worry about. Shortly thereafter starting make a ticking noise, pretty sure it's coming from the engine (similiar to a sewing machine). Very loud at startup, when the engines cold. Quieter and not constant when driving, but still comes and goes. Put sea foam in the oil, changed the oil, filter no change. We pulled the spark plugs, on cylinder 4 when the wire is pulled the ticking stops. No apparent fluid leaks. No performance issues. What do you think it could be? Is there a way to check w/o tearing the engine apart?
have the same problem?
