Having problems with your 2003 Saturn VUE ?
Knocking nosie on value covers or timing belt
\015 Can't really pin point where it is coming from but it sounds like it is in the value covers or timing belt casing. it gets loader as the car rasies rpm.\015
A clack clack or tick tick sound is the lifters. A deeper thumping is a rod knock or piston slap. You need to take it to a mechanic for an opinion. Sadly it sounds serious. You can use a rod or a hose to pin-piont the area of the noise.
