Ok I had a ticking noise before just at startup last year so I switched oil to Amsoil signature with a Amsoil filter and it went away for a while and then came back before I changed the oil I did the engine flush with the Amsoil engine flush.

Now it ticks all the time cold, warm just all the time tic, tic, tic! its making me nuts!!!

Still runs fine no CEL just TICKING!

I was thinking of trying some marvel mystery oil with my next oil change any thoughts on this is it a good idea? will it help?

Thanks

Dean

No idea. Mine does it too, valvetrain noise. Poor supply of oil in the head to the lifters is what causes it.
