I have a 1999 Excel which has recently had the timing belt replaced @ 100,000 km. Since the service, there is a 'ticking' noice evident from the engine (CAM ??) for a period from when the car is cold to when it warms up. Not long though, but it will go once the car has been driven for a minute or so.
I am told this is normal for an excel once the belt has been replaced, and it mainly due to engine noise that cannot be muffled, as the top engine cover is plastic, and not metal.
Anyone had this problem before, and any suggestions on how it might be fixed, thicker oil maybe ??
