Icon5 Wtf is this noise? (video) 99 prelude SH ticking

My luder started to make this weird ticking noise about 2 days ago after I had the engine bay detailed. It sounds like its coming from under the valve cover by the timing belt. Called Honda and they said it sounds like valve lash but they want almost $150 to diagnose the damn car. I just changed the oil yesterday so that's all up to date. The tick is really really quiet at idle then gets alittle
Louder when you give it gas but goes away at high rpm, and you hear it after every shift, but then it goes away again. Nothing has been done to the motor recently besides the oil change and coolant flush but that was after we started to hear the tick. Here is a link to a video I took today of it, let me know what you guys and gals think it is!

My ludes doing the same thing right now but not as loud (and it goes away once the cars warm) My lash is adjusted perfect but I think the lifters might be worn. Those definitely need an adjustment though. I'd like to know if that goes away for you after an adjustment.

Re: Wtf is this noise? (video) 99 prelude SH ticking

Valves adjusted, and checked the LMA's now I got this noise.... I just received my new JDM head with red dot cams that were just going to swap on, but if anyone knows what else this noise could be.... I was told possible bent valve, but the noise went away completely after I was driving it to the shop, (shifting at very low rpm, and keeping it under 25mph in 4th gear.) then came back after I turned a corner in 3rd gear and didn't stop til I got there and shut the engine off.

Video update:

I'd say you should just work on your new head, and make its perfectly good to go. and hope your current one doesnt blow up in the process.

Re: Wtf is this noise? (video) 99 prelude SH ticking

Messed your valves up bro. First video sounded like the valves or the camgears. At the first video the squeling i thought was the camgears, then when you rev'd up it sounded more like the valves. Second video made me lol because Honda did an adjustment and made it worse. Rebuild and replace!

Re: Wtf is this noise? (video) 99 prelude SH ticking

Sounds like the valves are bent, I wouldn't drive it like that since it could damage the pistons and potentially break off causing even more damage on the cylinder wall.


But as everyone else has already stated - you need to have it actually looked into/ head pulled to be sure.

To me that sounds like a major ROD KNOCK!! I think the lower end is toast my friend. better look for some pistons to go with that new head.
