Engine Ticking Noise

Hi All, My Rukus seems to have a ticking sound, like a tapet noise. You can hear it a idle after a drive when engine is hot on on highway when you sit on about 2500 rpm. ive taken to my dealing this morning and took one of the mechanics for a drive but they advised this is normal. This doesn't seem normal to me as my other Toyota does not do this. Just wondering if anyone else has the same noise etc

mine is EXACTLY like that, i have also taken it to the dealership, it doesn't bother me too much.. my old man is also a mechanic/auto elec, he also knows the boys in the service dep in toyota my rukus is still under warranty if i get time one day ill take it in but if they pull apart the cover and the top end of the engine and there is nothing wrong i will have to pay for labour, there is a ticking noise but like you said they also stated it was normal i think its abit louder than normal, so does my old man but they also said they have ALOT of toyotas louder than this, i guess i really wouldn't worry about it unless you really have to, just see if it gets worst but i have another mate that owns a rukus, same thing mate.

Many thanks for the reply. I guess. its "normal" if yours and others are the same. Goes like a rocket. just annoying unless you have music on....

Does anyone know where the tappets are coming from? I can't say I have actually heard them before? I do get creaking noises when I have to go up driveways at an angle and such from around the pillar area but I figure that to be the chasis twisting due to the firm suspension (tends to always be on 3 wheels going up driveways)

stolen from toyota nation...

the ticking could just be normal valve noise. The valves use solid lifters that arent adjustable except by swapping shims and a certain amount of noise is ok. If the ticking is fairly low and never changes in pitch or volume, there is a good chance that this is what it is, and it is nothing to worry about.

Cheers. Just have to live with the sewing machine noise... :whistling:
