SORRY the sound is in the RIGHT rear part of engine compartment
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Sound is near the firewall fairly low in the engine. Sound became pronounced this morning and quite suddenly. Otherwise auto is in sound condition.

Hi,if I may ask a few questions,does the noise increase with engine speed,is it affecting the way it runs,does the car need to be moving to hear,thanks for your time.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It can be heard clearly while idoling and increasers with RPMs. As of this morning we are afraid to even run it as it has increased significantly overnight. The impact on the way it runs is possibly due to not wanting to jeprodize it further.Thank you.

Good morning Tamaz, I am still persuing the 2006 Subaru with the loud ticking sound in the "right rear" part of the engine. Sounds like it is in the engine, valvue or lifter, I don't know but we are afraid to drive it `anymore since it increased so much yesterday morning.The way we left it was you were to call and you have removed $24.00 from my account so I expect to hear from you as soon as possible.(###) ###-#### ***** you

OK, I am being harshly judged by my sons for getting hustled for $24.00. A website that charges and all of a sudden falls silent.I asured them you guys were the real deal and we would hear back. We are gone after 4:30 pm. Please call ASAP or I will never hear the end of it..
