K so I want to start out by saying I have read numerous threads about ticking and noises and it's kind of helped its just my situation is a bit different. I started noticing this tick when I found out I had an oil leak. After reading the dipstick and it showing no oil at all I had the leak fixed but the sound still remains. This noise gets louder with higher rpms but dissipates at very high rpms. The thing I don't understand is that when you rev it in neutral you can't hear the tick only when it's under load. Please can someone assess my situation?!
