Engine Ticking Noise

Anyone have any ideas on what this engine ticking noise may be? I was driving on the highway and lost power accelerating for a moment. After this the oil light came on. The next time I started it up the ticking noise began. I had a friend look at my cams and he said they looked fine. He thought maybe the timing may be off. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Engine Ticking Noise

Check sounds like you need oil :P what is your oil level at?

And yes it could be that your timing is off...

it could be your crank or you might need a valve adjustment

Re: Engine Ticking Noise

Exact same thing happened to my h22. unfortunately, i failed to check the oil often and it resulted in me having to get the whole thing rebuilt, new pistons, block,headers etc. I suggest you take it in and disassemble it a bit, I personally think its the pistons knocking.
