Not exactly sure what the "dreaded lifter tick" sounds like but here is a video of my engine at idle. Diagnosis anyone?

click the video
I don't see a video to click on. It just opens up a picture.

Edit: I just tried it on the computer and it does open up to your video on photobucket. On the mobile app it doesn't. Sorry.

Sounds like the normal sewing machine valvetrain noise to me. Nothing out of the ordinary. If you had the "dreaded lifter tick" you would know it.

I don't think that is lifter tick. I have heard a few on this forum that are pretty bad. That just sounds like typical injector noise to me... I would say close the hood...no need to worry.

Ok just checking. I did break something on my intake manifold because I get 0 vacuum pressure now.

I ended up with lifter tick twice, second time I traded the g8. Its a Mich more pronounced clicking noise than that.
