ticking noise from under valve cover
Well......Im almost home free with all my car "issues". I have a faint ticking noise coming from under my valve cover (pass side) that increases as the rpm's go up. I thought It could be a loose rocker arm so a while back I took the valve cover off and checked the bolts and all were still torqued down.
I do have stock gt40 heads from an explorer on her with my ho cam in. I do not know how to check if a lifer is going bad, if I have a bent rod, or a messed up valve. Ive read a good amount of posts on each but want some suggestions from someone who actually has fixed these type of problems. I do know it is not an exhaust leak, and I am also running a thicker oil and that has done no good.
