I'm sorry if this has been asked before. :(

About a week ago, my car started making rhythmic, (-and sometimes not-so-rhythmic), chirping noises at idle. Then when the gas was pressed it would make a loud clicking sound, that increased under acceleration.

Any ideas as to what could be the problem(s)?

*At first I thought a belt needed replacing---but the sound is coming from the valve cover.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My car is a 2012 model, which was purchased in 2013, (-62,000 miles).

Thank-you, yes it was a loose spark plug.

The irony is that my regular mechanic, who noticed that the noise(s) was coming from the valve cover, sent me to the dealership because he assumed the motor needed warranty work.

:(

That meant waking up at 3:30am to drop the car off before taking a taxi to work, etc...etc. (This is the first time I've been burned by my mechanic)

At least the Cruze isn't suffering from a worse malady. Ever since I had those coolant leaks, I've been worried about other premature repairs....
