Diffrence between valve ticking and engine knocking

What's the difference????


I have a 98 base and 20134 kms. I can hear a tap/knock (cannot tell) when I'm idling at a stop light...I've tried to increase the revs (while in neutral) at standstill to see if the ticking/knocking goes higher with the rev increase but I cannot tell cause the engine noise overpowers what ever it is....

but on high ways while doing 100 I can sometimes hear it....

what is it?? knocking or ticking?

Re: Diffrence between valve ticking and engine knocking

Unfortunately ticking/knocking noises are hard to diagnose without hearing it. The possibilities are endless as to what it could be. All I can say is make sure yer oil level is good, look around the engine bay to see if anything is loose and causeing movement as well as under the car. Try to get a good idea of where its coming from and we may be able to help a lil more. If it is valves you would know right away as the noise would be coming from the valve cover...
