So I've been noticing a decrease in power (usually from a stop) the pick up speed is slower and i can no longer break loose on turns i used to slide on everyday. Also last night after racing some integra (i won:D) the oil light flashed on then off really shortly [Is due for an oil change, which im doing this weekend] and then the biggest problem... A wierd click/tick/tap sound coming from the engine :confused: it goes with the throttle (gets faster when pushing pedal) but is there at idle, it has been there for most of the day but goes away or is less noticeable for brief times.
I will try and upload a video tommorow afterschool.

Its a V6 3.5L 2007 SXT 26,000 miles

what do you guys think?

Sounds like the oil you are using is letting you down! There shouldn't be ANY ticking coming from a 3.5L it is all hydraulic and close tolerances.

We make a 12.5w35 QuantumBlue High Performance Competition Formula 3.5L Polyspheric 4 valve blend that would really help this motor! Get rid of the ticking.

However, you can't fix a hardware problem with software. I agree to get it to the dealer and get an oil pressure check. Maybe drifting, you are putting the oil on one side of the pan and cavitating (foaming) the oil. If you do that while on high performance manuvers, you are running the engine without pressure and that can damage your engine!

Need more filmstrength if you are going to do things like that!:beerchug:

His oil uses some space crystals or something that makes it super good. I highly recommend it. My engine got quieter using it but it wasn't that loud with the valves slapping to begin with like some people have complained about. I will say that QB has also made my catch can obsolete with its super powers.

you starved your engine of oil, thats why the light flickered. By the time you see the light your usually in trouble. I saw the light flicker in my integra, go figure, around a jughandle and siezed a crank bearing.
If there wasnt ticking before and there is now, you may be in trouble and may not be reverible.
Get it checked out asap




and brians oil isnt really oil, its like magic pixie dust suspended in some polymorphic material that massages your engine and created a phscadelic high based off the dust that make the engine think its invisible and probably is.
