Hello guys,

My sister has an '02 Impala LS with the 3.8L engine in it. She's been complaining of a noise coming from the engine bay that sounds like a ticking noise. It stops once she drives it down the street. This is a new occurance. I'm not all too familiar with this car since I have a 500whp RSX Type-S and tend to slant more towards imports. I haven't had the time to diagnose the problem in person since I'm in college and don't live at home anymore. Does anyone have any information/idea of what this could be. That way when I go down I can pinpoint exactly what's going on. Thanks.

Too many things but likely exhaust manifold gasket....as it warms up and drives away the sounds goes away since the metal is heating up.
