1.4 16V ticking noise

Hi, looking for any ideas/advice regarding a ticking noise coming from the engine.

The noise is present regardless of engine temp and gets quicker when the car is revved.

It seems to come from the intake manifold side of the engine and I'm thinking it could be an injector. I did think it may be tappets but they're hydraulic on this model afaik and the noise sounds more like it's coming from the rear of the engine rather than out of the head.

I've got another 100hp which idles very quietly so it's definitely not a case of "they all do that sir".

Any ideas would be appreciated

Re: 1.4 16V ticking noise

Noisy tappers is quite common. They gum up an will not pressure up. They normally worse on first start up and quieter after a long run. However if you ignore them they will fail all the time.


Plenty of videos on YouTube with the sound.


If you think its an injector just disconnect them one at a time. It will run on 3 cylinders. The noise will go when the faulty one is disconnected (I doubt this will be the fault though)

Hi Koalar, thank you for your reply.

I will unplug and check the injectors tonight, hopefully that is the issue!

If it did turn out to be tappets, how would I go about dealing with it?

Before jumping straight in you need to confirm the problem.

The best way for lifters is with the rocker/cam cover off. Turn the engine over by hand. They should all sit the same when the lobe isn't pushing on them and you shouldn't able to easily push them down.


A fault one will collapse when pushed.You can clean them. Plenty of YouTube videos. I have done this. It works but they are still not as good as new ones but much better than replacing 16.

Re: 1.4 16V ticking noise

my girlfriends 100hp does it to some degree. its better with a few revs so the oil pressure gets up. cant beat reliable old shim and bucket

doing regular oil changes reduces the chance of them sticking up. some models can be cured by running an additive through the system, but i would only use that an old high miler on its last legs personally.
