Pearl, with a cold engine, after 1 km a ticking noise comes

Customer Question

Hi Pearl, with a cold engine, after 1 km a ticking noise comes up, putting the pedal down, first a harder ticking that go''s over into a rattling or sissling noise. in idle no noise if the engine is warm, noise is still there but hard to hear.
JA: Cars do make very odd noises -- They help the mechanics figure out what's wrong. They are terrific with my old Grand Cherokee. Anything else I can tell the Nissan Mechanic before I connect you two?
Customer: I think that it comes from the vacuum pump, but not sure
JA: Got it. Let's get this figured out. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Nissan Mechanic about your situation and connect you two. You'll be on the road in no time.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!There are quite a few things that you could have going on. You may have one or more failed lifters, work rocker arms or cam lobes (rare), it could be as simple as carbon knock, you could be hearing spark knock from the engine running lean, or an exhaust leak could be the source of the tick.What year and model is the vehicle and what engine do you heave?
