    Engine Tick

    I own a 2ltr V reg SRI which i believe is the early engine X20 ?? not sure on that

    Anyways as soon as i accelerate either harshly or lightly i get a ticking noise This DOES NOT happen when the car is at idle or i am cruising with no throttle change

    is this a tappets problem OR somethig more sinister OR something these engines do

    Hope i have made sense, its not a terrible sound but it just feels like it shouldnt be doing it

    cracked exhaust manifold and/or sheared manifold studs?

    the X20XEV's are famous for it.
