    Ticking noise goes and comes, sounds like the valve train but I pulled the valve cover off and don't see anything wrong? also it is not running at full power more like 1/2 to 3/4. I started reading about all the valve train issues these motors have but I also think it might be the coil? any help on this would be great.

    note: It is not backfiring, running rough or anything of that nature just a ticking noise that seems to get louder and softer under no certain circumstances
