So popped into the mechanic the other day. He heard the engine ticking kind of loud. He told me it was a "Top end knock"... He said it is nothing to worry about but Im just wondering if anyone knows what exactly that means... :confused:

Should I be worried? :(

Possible he said "top end knock in the intake" but I just remember the top end knock...

Ive always just put it down to an old engine that is quite ticky anyways

+1 They're known for sounding like sewing machines. Valve adjustment for me is every T-belt change.

they all tick its just what they do. some people go to get their valves adjusted hoping that it will stop, but it usually doesn't
