To describe the sound itself a little further, it is a fairly light ticking sound, and it sounds like it may be coming from the right side of the engine (when sitting in the vehicle). I have not been able to hear this sound with the hood popped since it will only make the sound when driving.
The ticking sound seems similar to valve tap, but not sure if could be the valves since the ticking sound is not heard at idle, and the fact that the sound goes away completely after a few seconds of initial driving. One other thing is that it is a "new" sound in that it is not a sound that is heard lightly at idle and then becomes louder when driving, rather, it is a new sound that appears very briefly and then quickly goes away for the duration of the drive.
Thank you for any input that you can give!
have the same problem?
