Ticking Sound When Accelerating

I have a 2000 Honda Civic Si. When I accelerate in every gear, there is a fast ticking sound that climbs louder and faster the more i accelerate. Does anyone realistically know what this could be? Answers are appreciated.

Re: Ticking Sound When Accelerating

Does it make the sound when you push the clutch pedal down and rev the engine? If no, then you have a bearing going bad in the tranny. If it's the engine than it could be valve chatter, rod knock, or a bad bearing somewhere.

Re: Ticking Sound When Accelerating

The ticking is still there when i rev it in neutral. It doesnt sound like any knocking, it runs and pulls fine. Just a constant tick! Its driving me nuts!

Sounds like you need a valve lash adjustment.
