sorry its a loud ticking, which I have had a mechanic listen to and that's when he thought carbon build up, so we ran cleaners in the gas, and oil, and higher octane gas, 3 tanks of gas later, I still have the ticking, and the only change has been in the start up in the morning, and after warming up, the ticking starts, and as i travel it just gets louder. -
