So I've noticed like when i accelerate, like my car makes a fast ticking sound , more noticeable when windows down and im driving next to a wall or something. it's like a ticking marbley sound. Like the sound thats described in the lifter nosie thing that apparently is a common problem.
Now, this car has 119k on it. so obviously out of warrenty. but it does it all the time. My car runs fine tho.
so Main questions
Anything else this could be?
if so what else?
is it prolly lifters though? and Im guessing it's the valve lifters were talking about
Any chance dealer would fix this for free?
and If I leave it, is it just mainly an annoyance or is it gonna cause damage/reduce life of my car.
all info u can give is appreciated
