Re: Need Help, Engine Tapping
i know when my alfa needs oil as the ticking starts, it seems that with my engine if the oils not at the max mark she ticks, i have a slow leak so its my biggest indication on when to put some more in.
I believe it to be the variator though, also one time it was ticking when the oil filler cap was left loose, quick tighten and the ticking went away.
Other ticking problems i have had was recently when the weather was cold it seemed like an injector was tapping quite loud, a good blast up the dual carriageway and problem solved.
The other ticking that can occur is when a spark plug isnt tightened down properly, i remember reading about someone else on here.
