Icon5 clicking while accelerating?

i recently noticed a clicking sound coming from the engine bay, its driving me crazy, i hear it at all speeds, only when im accelerating tho, not coasting. i read it could be a valve adjustment? or possibly a pully? im not sure &would like to know what you guys think it might be. at/172k/motors in great shape & everything. recent oil change also. THANKS!!!

Re: clicking while accelerating?

Does it happen when you're turning or all the time when you're on the gas?

Re: clicking while accelerating?

Could be valves but without being there it's hard to diagnose on the computer. If it was only while turning under acceleration I would have suggested your cv axle on one side or the other but since it's all the time I would think it's valves.

Re: clicking while accelerating?

you should be able to tell if thats it. open up the valve cover, locate the rocker arm and check for any vertical play on it. so basically push down and pull up on the end of it near the spark plugs. if you have a lot of play then you do need to adjust it. to adjust it, look on the end you just pushed and you'll see a small nut with a flathead slot in the stud. you loosen the nut and turn that flathead screw to adjust. but you need a feeler gauge to check when its correct. looking up the specs right now. i think its like .005-.007

edit: lateral play (sideways)means you need to replace the pivot stud, bolt or both.

Re: clicking while accelerating?

i was wrong about the specs. this has to be done cold too. not that you'd wanna touch the motor when its hot. and of course each cylinder has to be on top dead center so theres no load on the valve. the picture shows which way the cam lobe should be pointing. here's specs and feeler gauge location according to alldata online

Intake: 0.07-0.11 mm (0.003-0.004 in)

Exhaust: 0.15-0.19 mm (0.006-0.007 in)



edit: im sure theres a DIY for this but it'll be faster just posting. i still recommend checking the DIY sections though.

Re: clicking while accelerating?

Loose valves are super common problem on these motors, I had same problem and it quieted right up after I adjusted them

ohhh dude get that replaced as soon as possible man. ive read about a lot of those going out. better to do it before it breaks. you can get aftermarket for anywhere from 100 to 300 or oem replacement for like 60 bucks.
