Default 95 accord troubleshoot - ticking

hey. I bought my 95 accord lx three years ago for $300. Got timing belt fix and been driving since. The only problem was that the motor ticks LOUDLY! Dunno why or understand at all. Another issue I have is the check engine light has been on. Does that mean I would have to change obd sensors or something like that? Like I said, been driving it for 3 year and no problem tho. THANKS!

Most of the time "Ticking" noises has to do with your valves. When you say you had the timing belt "fixeD", did the car have a broken timing belt? And you probably need to check out why you have a check engine light. Do a search on how to check your engine light and then find your code. When did the ticking start? It sounds like the valves need to be adjusted, your timing belt could have "jumped" time, or the valves may have been damaged from/if the timing belt has ever broken.

also F2X engines suffer from excessive 2nd cyl journal wear and it will cause a ticking sound.

if your check engine light has been for 3 years and nothing has gone wrong, its probably not a huge deal. but id still recommend checking whats setting it off. heres a good diy on how to do that
