update engine tick

hey my neighbour just took a look and said classic sound of worn bearings. so remove all fan belts and see if noise goes away. if so, figure out which thing the belt drives that has worn bearings by pulling on the pulleys and feeling for wear.
sounds like a tick to me tho, could a worn bearing really make a tick, hes pretty old so not sure if he can really hear the sound haha....

He is right, to diag a noise like that it would be a very smart choice to remove your belt, and start the car up .. Just to pin-point it isn't a pulley..

Just something you could try,

Worked for me on my Gt, I thought my motor was knocking , it ended up being my a/c compressor
