My timing belt was done in 2005. My car seems to make a ticking noise when it sits ideling. Is this normal? Would I need to replace timing belt again since it's been 10-11 years maybe?
My car has 15000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
This may very well be a slight bit of excess valve train noise. Your car should have the timing belt replaced around every 60,000-70,000 miles. If it is possible that you may have put that many miles on the car since the last timing belt change, it may be time for a new one as well as a valve adjustment. To avoid any unnecessary repairs, I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home to diagnose the noise firsthand and make these adjustments.
