Somewhere between 40,000 and 100,000 miles we should replace the timing chain or belt. Did it ever get changed and how many miles?
On a personal note, I had one of our cars developed a similar clicking and luckily it was very evident where the noise was. Off came the valve cover and a small part of a head bolt was found. Very strange but thankfully the bit didn't find its way to a place to do damage. Dodged a big repair bill there.
This was my lesson to not keep driving when there's a new clicking sound. Get it taken care of.
Hi everyone, I have a 2012 Nissan Tiida (HR16DE Engine) I'm hearing a rapid clicking noise that only goes away briefly at about 2000rpm. I posted a video on youtube. What could this be?
