    Knock/tick type of noise from engine compartment

    Hey guys, I just bought my 2014 Chevy Cruze lt turbo not even a week ago. Car runs good but under a load there is knock or tick type of noise present. It increases with engine rpm. I have checked the Pcv valve on the valve cover gasket, but no change. This YouTube video is the exact noise I’m hearing, not my vehicle but the same noise.

    Any thoughts?? Appreciate the help 😎

    Classic loose spark plug sound.

    Since you just got it, let the selling dealer resolve it.....but tell them that you suspect a loose spark plug.
    The reason I suggest going back to selling dealer dealer is because often, when the coil pack is removed, the plug terminal ends within tear or break......adding to the cost of repair.
    You would prefer that potential to be on the dealers dime.

    Let us know how it goes.

    He didn't mention where or who he bought the car from.

    I got it from Hanley’s auto sales in Roseville California. I doubt they will do anything as it was bought as is. But I’ll go back and see what they say.
    If not I’ll take my tools home and check the plugs at my house. Hopefully nothing is torn haha. Thanks for the info I’ll keep ya updated 😎

    I just did it myself, plugs were super easy to get to. All 4 plugs were about 4 full turns loose. Start the car and the noise is gone. Thanks a bunch for your help Robbie 😎👏👏
