Re: [DML] Good news for vin 2277 AT LAST!!

I am fairly confidant its a valve tick. I have looked at the exhaust 
and it appears ok, the sound is definately coming from the valve 
cover. Is there a way to tell for sure?

The ODO says 37,000 miles (unconfirmed). I think a more accurate 
assessment would be around 60,000 as the angle drive was shot when I 
got the car. Dont think it would be much more than that, the engine 
is super strong.
