    My 91 recently started ticking during acceleration and at idle. It only starts when the car is warm and gradually increases during acceleration. Has anyone had this problem? Im hoping its not a valve issue

    Make sure it's not a header leak, when the leak is minor it can sound just like a valve tick.

    Just spit ballin here but could it potentially be a lifter that's gone bad? Just an idea but by no means positive on that.
