ok first let me say i did use the search and the info was helpful but i need a little more insight on it
i just got a valve job on my car and its been about 1000 miles but last night my car starte to make a ticking noise loud enough to hear over my stereo, so i pulled ove and looked under the hook and reved the engine adn herd the ticking coming from the back passanger side of the engine, now i read the it may be stuck valves or fuel injuectors "thoses are new on my car to" or possibly a cracked fly wheel.
any one have any clues to what it may be with the info i provided?

Mine does the same thing, its more apparent with it in park or neutral when I have it above 2k rpm and let go of the gas, it ticks as it slows down until it reaches about 1.2k rpm. I just figured it was GM's ticking issues that everyone else has. 40,500 miles on a 2002
