Toyota! (and Lexus and Scion) / Re: 07 Corolla S Engine ticking
« on: April 18, 2007, 08:28:27 AM »
About a month ago ( 1500 miles ), I purchased a Corolla CE. After driving 30 miles/ 30 minutes to work I noticed the same sort of ticking noise. I was concerned enough to pop the hood and check the oil, and check it again before heading home. Oil level was right on the mark. ( I was feeling paranoid after discovering that the dealership had inflated the tires to 45+ lbs instead of 30. )

I decided, as has already been suggested, to go with a synthetic oil at 5000 miles. I was lucky to hit a buy one get one free sale and bought three changes worth.

Crossing my fingers and hoping for the best. Hoping to join the 200K club in about, oh, 8 years!
