Hello. Fairly common. What is your oil brand, weight, and filter? And how often are the oil changes?
The only thing I know is that the car had regular oil changes done at the dealership and that they were conventional oil changes (that's all I see on the report Toyota gives online).Hello. Fairly common. What is your oil brand, weight, and filter? And how often are the oil changes?
I get my oil changed every 3k miles. Since I just bought this one, I've only had it changed once, but I had it changed like 200 miles before the sticker said it was due. I don't believe I'm consuming oil. I do a fluid check once a week and everything appears to be normal.How long are you going per oil change? Do you know if your consuming oil? Are you checking during the oil change interval?
I'm not familiar with Kreen. Is it just something you pour in the gas tank? Where can I get it?OK..So you just bought it, have no prior history of how often the oil was changed. THIS is the reason I was asking, sometimes when the oil gets low or there is consumption it can tick. Keep the link for future reference until you know for sure whats going on. My experience with the ticking noise has been a sticky vvt-i actuator. Symptoms are a startup tick that doesnt go away until the oil warms up. Usually cured by a cleaner that removes any sludge/varnish buildup like Kreen. Its a possibility, who knows what the prior owner did, most likely nothing, nobody spends extra money on a car they intend to trade. It should go away with a mild cleaning and your short intervals.
