I have a fairly loud ticking noise coming from the top of my Ecotec engine. I dont think its a lifter noise as it dosent speed up with RPM. Have not been able to find much on line in regards to others having this problem. Any info would be helpful. Thanks

its your injectors.

If you doubt, take a metal rod (screwdriver, extension, etc) and place it on your ear (with the corner of your ear closed. Then place the other end on different sections of the engine. The internal sound will come through wherever is closest. This is an old timers trick

Other GM models use the same motor, Google "ecotec ticking noise" and you will find additional information, on one forum they called it the Ecotick so it may be a problem or a common engine noise. Also depends on if it's at start up, at operating temperature or both.
