Have knock when running that comes and goes but in the linked video from dropbox it'll show the ticking all the time. It don't matter what time of day or how long it's been running.

It hasn't did it today or yesterday as it's a come and go thing.

IF there's a test or something I can do a capture of data on then I have no problem gaining more knowledge. I think I need to practice capturing data more frequently so I become accustom to doing it.

Here's the 2 videos I took in the first week of Sept,


It's also has a C2402 which just says pump motor for the ABS and I believe the traction control when I check the Code for each of those systems for the associated codes.

There's also another Code which is for the steering wheel clock spring to be tested.

Need to also do a few other things as well as this is a car we found for my daughter to drive for school and such.

The frequency sounds too fast to be upper end, IMO. You can try killing cylinders individually to see if the noise changes significantly with one cylinder or the other. If the noise goes away or gets worse, you're onto something.

I've also heard similar noises comes from hydraulic timing belt tensioners, which I believe this one uses. You can catch a failing one by giving it a listen with your stethoscope.
