    hey guys i have a 93 SI wit a B18B swap in my ride. The other day i was about to park my car in my garage when i noticed a loud thumping noise coming from the engine. It makes this thumping/ticking sound when im idling, its starting to do this everytime i stop @ a light or idle anywhere. The sound is like something is hitting the hood of my car but i checked the hood and it has room...Sounds like its coming from the head of the engine. The sound is sync with the engine idling(tick tick tick) What could it be????

    Thanks guys

    Well if its a ticking sounds i could be that your valves are out of adjustment, but there are several ticking/knocking like sounds that could be coming from the engine. Its hard for us to answer without hearing the sounds for ourselves. I would have a shop take a look at it.

    Does it go away when you depress the clutch?
    Trans case bearings?
    Rod Knock?
    Spark Knock?
    Valve clatter?
    Piston Slap?
    When hot?
    When cold?
    How loud is the knock? Is it like "I'm doing your mom on the washing machine loud" or what? :D
