HelloCustomer Does the ticking sound heavy like a lifter, and can you feel the engine missing?

its more of a lite tick
Expert:  Joe replied 8 years ago.
Well if it is just a light tick, it probably isn't a lifter problem. Assuming you have spark and injector pulse at that cylinder, what you need to do next is check the compression in that cylinder and compare it to another cylinder to verify there is enough compression. Also take an ohm reading on the fuel injector and compare it with a different injector.
