Q: Accelerating causes ticking noise.

I hear a ticking noise when the vehicle accelerates.

A: A ticking noise indicates a worn valve lash...

A ticking noise indicates a worn valve lash adjuster that is dirty and needs cleaning or needs to be replaced. These are the lifters that ride on the camshaft and provide lift for the valve. They are spring loaded and that spring may wear out causing there to be too much play in the lifter and the rocker arm causing a ticking noise. It is a typical problem with this model car and can be easily fixed. I would recommend having a technician inspect the lash adjuster and clean them as needed.
