Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

What can cause this ticking noise here in allot of cases is cam shaft lifters or tappets failing.They may still operate properly when cold and with lifters can hold oil when cold but as the engine warms up the metals expand and cause the ticking.This will have to be checked into further to see if your vehicle needs new lifters or tappets to correct this here as this is the most common cause.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

Also forgot to mention that no ticking while load is on the engine. But once decelerating or no load, ticking starts.

Your welcome.

This can still be caused by faulty lifters/tappets.I have seen these act up before in the past needing replaced for issues like this here.The engine will have to be inspected further to be sure and then from there if found that these are the cause they will need replaced for this fault here.

Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here.

Thanks Pete
