    Default 205 GTI - Engine Noise at Speed

    Hi there

    Any ideas on this one.

    I have a 92 1.9 GTI with 150k on the clock. The engine has been well serviced and is currently running 10W 30 semi synthetic oil.

    The engine emits a mechanical ticking noise at speed (120Kms) which tends to fade when the speed rises to over 130km. Like wise, at lower speeds, the noise cannot be heard. It seems to be coming from the top end (lifters/valves??).

    This is my first PUG and an am trying to gauge an idea of what sounds are normal and which are not.

    Any ideas??

    The oil is way too thin for that engine.
