1995 Ford Escort Question: What is Ticking/Tapping noise coming from engine once RPM's reach 2k?



pleeks3, 1.9L 4 Cylinder, Stafford, VA, September 03, 2012, 09:58

Engine lost timing upon initial restart death noise. Towed home, replaced head. Engine runs GREAT except when revving accelerator ticking/tapping noise @ 2k rpm underload and in park. Checked connecting rod bearing anyways, but NOT a knocking sound.

    how did you check the bearings?? what was the clearance??

    could be a lifter or a bad valve seat.

    Just checked to see if I could get some swinging in connecting rod bearings; doubtful if it's the vavle seat or lifters because I just replaced the head and would hear noise when idling.
