Why is my car making a ticking noise?

Why is my car making a ticking noise?

Why is my car making a ticking noise? Your engine could be making a ticking noise due to a stuck lifter. When your lifter is not working properly then it will make a ticking noise. When the lifter sticks it causes the rocker arm to move freely and this will cause the noise. If the lifter does not unstick then it can cause damage to the rocker arm and other valve train components. Any time that your car starts to make a noise that is not within its normal range then it should be checked. Early detection can prevent damage to your engine and the many components. This goes for any noise that is coming from your car. Give us a call and let us take care of you. Happy Adventures, Heather

My car makes a noise when I turn

A noise when turning could be due to an issue with your ball joints. Ball joints are a vital component in your suspension system. If they have excess movement they can cause a noise, and they will cause poor tire wear when they are worn out. They are not an item on your maintenance schedule and need to be replaced when they are worn out.  Give us a call and let us take care of you.  Happy Adventures,  Heather
