Ticking noise from 2.0 T.S engine - help!!!
a ticking / tapping noise has started on my 2.0 T.S GTV - I was told a while back from my garage that I had a small leak from somewhere around my exhaust manifold / down pipe, so I was hoping it might be as simple as as a gasket or something.
However I've been looking online and there are many forums pointing to either valve springs, lifters or bearings.
The noise doesn't appear at normal idle, but from about 1500rpm onwards and gets faster as the revs go up.
