As the weather has gotten colder, my titans ticking seems to have gotten louder. Is this still just the injectors ticking away or could there be something more to it? I can hear it in the cabin(softly) when the A/C and radio are off. Only noticeable when idling or coasting in a parking lot etc.

One other symptom that I doubt is related, when i go to accelerate from a stop, right as the throttle hits load, there is a rattle(?) type sound just for a beif second as it starts to pull. Sounds like its coming from the bottom of the engine area.

Thanks for any suggestions guys. Happy New Year!

When the timing chain guides went on my pathfinder, it sounded nothing like that. It was more like a supercharger whine. Started out only occasionally making the noise and over the next few thousand miles got fairly constant. That being said, it wasn't a tapping/clicking sound, it sounded like a chain rubbing against aluminum. The dealer did the job for $1200 (and that's in Alaska).
