    Ticking sound?

    Been away for a week on business with the car and its been fine.

    As i pulled up yesterday out side my house all of a sudden i just heard a ticking noise and it sounded abit like a diesel tbh.

    What could be wrong?
    Thanks!

    ill go check the oil level

    cant decribe it really. havent done anything to cause but the engine is giving off a ticking noise!

    if its low on oil and it ticks, wouldnt a oil light show on the dash to show that its low?

    would be worth opening the bonnet and locating it. could help you find a definite answer
