Re: ticking getting more noticable
Try to determine, with a mechanics stethoscope, if you have one, where the noise is coming from, if you have an automatic transmission, try to see if it's coming from the inspection cover just behind the oil pan. Recently, this happened to my Cherokee, drove me nuts, I thought it was a rod out of tolerance at first. It turned out to be the four bolts that connect the flexplate to the torque converter. All four had backed themselves out over the years, and one of them was ticking on a small indentation in the inspection cover. Sounded a lot like the engine, until I put the stethoscope on it.
