    Hi there. Just got a 95 Talon tsi. Had to wire in new relay box under hood as I guess there was a fire from rodents. Got that done and fired up. Now I have some issues electrically speaking to deal with as some of wires were duplicates but on initial start there was a faint tick that started after a couple minutes. Now it's worse. I'm not driving car yet till I sort out all issues. It sounds like it's up top in head but it's a lot worse. I changed plugs and oil. Researched on here for the ngk plugs. I just used a synthetic Mobil 1 for oil change. Is there an oil pump or something I should be checking fuse for????

    No fuses. Could be a collapsed lifter, pull the VC and see what things look like. Look for loose rocker arms when the cam lobe is not pressing on it. If it has any significant play then I bet the lifter is collapsed.

    Ok. I'll get a video of it as well. Has an exhaust leak but can't get that fixed until I know it's good to drive. These are new to me so...I don't get a lot of time with lil ones but I'll let you know what I can see. Thank you.
