brad, you say this noise is around the oil filter area and this only started when you changed the oil and filter correct ? now did you fit a genuine oil filter with the correct part numbering or an aftermarket copy ? to my understanding of the genuine filter versus the non genuine filter is the genuine has a non return type valve fitted so oil stays in the filter when the engine is not running and the other filters do not have this valve fitted so any oil will just run back down into the engine sump when not running. in my early days of motor vehicles , when you changed the oil filter you started up the engine and there was always a ticking sound until the filter filled up with oil. so what i feel is your issue is simular to this where the filter might not be totally full or something like this that is causing the ticking. genuine filter could be faulty if thats what you fitted or non genuine filter not holding oil up., how about you replace the oil filter with another genuine type and see if this makes the tick go away. The only other cause for this ticking could be a partial blockage of one of the oil journals that feed oil to the lifters which are above the oil filter under the top rocker cover. a good oil flush can clear the blockage if its this.

It might be worth investing in a stethoscope (or a home made one with a screwdriver in the end of a bit of garden hose) and having a poke around when you can hear the noise. This will give you an idea of an exact location because sounds can appear to come from somewhere they are not...

I vaguely recall being able to hear something on mine, as far as I can recall, it is a lot easier to hear it when going through a drive thru at a fast food joint because of all the walls around you, but I can't say I was concerned about it. Since warranty has finished on mine (5 years now) I have been using Ryco filters and have tried a few different brands of oil but all have been 5w30.

If you get to the bottom of it please let us know... Mine has around 113k km on it now, 2010 model.

^ I just want to add that my car has had Ryco filters fitted for the last 100,000km at least and the box states that the filter contains a non-return (anti-drain) valve. My timing chains are still in good condition.

As for the ticking sound, I'd grab a mechanic's stethoscope too, and try to nail the location more precisely.

There is an oil cooler above the filter and crankcase gases are sent out from there through the PCV to the intake. I wonder if what you're hearing is just blow-by gas being squeezed through a dirty aperture at high speed for a short duration resulting in what sounds like a tick? The stethoscope should help to sort it out for you.

That's what I thought, I use them too.

Yes I agree, the ryco oil filters are good too and have the non return valve. Previous to my timing chains being replaced I had used either genuine or ryco filters. When the tensioners were at their noisiest before they were replaced was actually when I had a genuine filter on. The engine was actually much quieter with a ryco. That said, since the chains and tensioner have been done I haven't had any startup noises with the genuine filter. This noise in particular starts after the car has warmed up.
As a few of you have suggested I'll get a stethoscope of some sort on to it and see if we can locate it a bit more precisely. My mechanic who did the chains had a quick listen the other day and is leaning towards an injector... I'll keep ya's posted as I find out more.

Cheers

Well after my big speel above, mine isn't doing it anymore. I do recall hearing it at come stage, but can't recall how long ago now. It could be worth running a can of that liquimoly diesel purge through it and see if that helps.
