ok is the engine making the tick after you replaced the head gasket or have you not replaced the head gasket yet?
i havent replaced it yet .. ?
They are your HLAs. Pretty normal on our cars. Just make sure you have enough oil in it. They tend to get super loud when you're running low.
Is it a knock or a tick? If it overheated badly you may have caused more severe problems.
its loud ass ticks .. loud where the neighbors will call the cops after 10 ... well when it blew i had to drive 2 towns over but the car didnt overheat anywhere past 3 quarters ..
Lifters shouldn't be that loud. Where is the ticking originating from?
i cant really tell .. its too loud .. maybe its compression leaking ?? because the gasket blew so bad ?
Sounds to me like the coolant mixed with the oil and it got so bad that you spun a rod bearing. I would drop your oil pan, pull the rod caps off and inspect your bearings before you throw a rod through your block.
i dont think so because the absolute second it blew the noise came .. it wasent like it took time to mix
maybe its jus leaking compression
