    1988 toyota 1/2 ton p/u. 2.4L carb'd. 4 speed trans. 206,000 miles but runs strong. Few weeks ago replaced head gasket due to starting to cause overheating on long hill and coolant level dropping every few days. Shut motor off after long drive and coolant spits into overflow tank due to head gasket. Replaced with new hoses, thermostat, coolant, oil and filter, and valve stem seals. When done and I started engine, and adjusted valves, etc, after a few miles, a noise developed in the engine. It sounded like a lifter going bad in an engine that has them, a loud ticking that was barely audible at start up, but got louder as it warms up. Engine runs as smoothly as it did before head gskt. but noise still thereafter readjusting valves and checking everything in the top end . Noise comes from the intake side around the last two cylinders and doesnt sound heavy enough to be bottom end. Now heres the weird thing: Today I had the rear end up on jack stands enough to get under truck to weld glass pack in & outs and when done spent hour or so talking to people before taking off stands and back level on the ground. But when I had run engine with rear jacked up 18 or so inches to check welds for leaks the noise was completely gone like before the head gasket repair, and when back level, noise was still no longer there. After driving 30-40 miles though, when I got home, the noise had started back up again but not quite as loud as before, yet at least. Any ideas on the cause? Thanks in advance for any thoughts, Im stumped.

    I have a 2003 Chevy Malibu it ran hot the other day and we added water and burped the line. We also flushed the motor out with a water hose in the bottom of the motor while it was running.and it started to build up pressure and tried to shut off and then it started ticking. We changed the spark plugs and put Block seal in the radiator but it is still ticking. What could be the cause of the ticking?
