Slight pinging/tick below 2K RPM

Postby mraven » Mon Aug 18, 2014 5:48 pm



I just purchased 2004 with 15k miles on it. I has sat for the last 2-3 years. I have been running 91 and seafoam and just changed the oil, 10w40 amsoil syn. I have a metallic tick when the rpm is below 2k, not constant. Does not sound like lifters to me. Could I be hearing the fuel injectors?

Very new to the 1800. Power response is good with no hesitation in the throttle at all.

It might be better to move this to the 1800 Info and Questions. Most of the questions and answers here relate to 1500s. I know that I, for one, rarely visit the other models' areas, otherwise I would be blind from reading all of the messages.

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.
