    Hello I have a Glanza but noticed today that it has Ticking from engine somewhere only at 1500rpm??

    If you go to 2000rpm it goes away and sitting at idle it's not there only 1500rpm!!

    Can only hear it when in car sitting still!!

    Have no idea wot it could be as don't sound like a hydro tappet..

    Hope for someone to shed some light for me.

    Thanks Steve

    It could be your speedo converter if you've got 1

    I Wouldn't even want to say not having heard it, but from past experiences the tapping was only audible between a specific rev range, mine would only rattle between 1,500 and 1,800 rpm and progressivly got worse over time ...Personally for peace of mind i'd take the sump off and check the big ends for play, only takes 1 hour tops for a complete novice, if you can elimanate that then that is always good news!
