when i started my car this morning it instantly starting makeing a loud ticking noise from the motor(loud enough i could hear it from inside the car), i let it warm up and still no change in the noise. so i drove it and as i pushed on the gas pedal the ticking would get faster and louder.
so i did some reaserch and found a few possible issues it could be
1. oil pressure relief valve could be stuck, so i took it out inspected and cleaned
2. oil pump not working, so i removed the oil filter and cranked the car over 6 times so see the flow out of the filter adapter, and its flowing just fine.
so my last idea was put seafoam engine restorer and repair in it. i did that and let the car idle for about 45 mins and it quited the ticking signifacantly, but now after the car has sat for 2 hrs i went to start it up again and the loud ticking was back, let it run for about 2 mins and pushed on the gas and the ticking slowly started to go away again.
what the heck is wrong with my car????
if anyone could help please!!!
