So pull the intake and exhaust manifold, and inspect for the all too common craked exhaust manifold, which gives a nice ticking sound. If I'm wrong, you're out the cost of a gasket... if not, whatever sanity you started with may return when you replace the exhaust manifold.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.

I am getting the exact same noise and it just started after I did an oil change. Since it was fine before the oil change I am pointing the finger at the oil filter. I have heard people complain on here that FRAM oil filters can cause this same problem and that is what I put on. I can't wait to get home tonight and change my filter.

This is one of the many similar replies I have read: "I've been told that your oil filter anti-drainback valve sticking could cause this. Fram filters are supposed to be the largest culprits."

I am really keeping my fingers crossed on this one!!!
