:angry: Hi. I'm new to post here. I drive a 2001 Sephia which I've had for 2 years. Its making a horrible ticking noise that gets louder the longer the car is driven. No warranty coverage and still owe bank . Anyone know what could be the trouble? Most of you seem to be fixing your kias yourselves so I thought someone might have a clue.

Could be a lifter, rod, cam.....or just low on oil.

Check the oil first. Might just be low or two thin (burnt).
To know for sure, I would remove the valve cover, (hookup any wires I need to to make the engine run) and start the car. Since it is an over head cam engine, you should find the problem right away.
