Theres a ticking sound comming from my engine, and a few people have commented on it. "You got any oil in that thing?" is what they say.....Well, I just changed oil, and even before I did, there was plenty of oil in it. It doesnt burn oil at all either. Its a 93 ATX. Is it maybe the heat? its has been hot here lately, but to be honest, I really dont think that caused it - maybe made it worse. I really hope it isnt anything big, if any of you guys would know, I would appreciate insight..

Did you change your oil filter as well? What oil did you use.

Yup....

I use mobil 5w30, always have on that car (the synthetic stuff), but this time I used 10w30.....thinking the thicker stuff would help, but it didnt.....

I HATE the noise, cause it makes it sound......not like I want it too...
and yea I changed the oil filter, I do everytime I change oil, which is 3000-4000mi range..
I think im gonna have it taken in and looked at
