Dear colleagues,

I have a problem in my car that many people talk about but nobody tells a solution.
Driving in the highway (5th gear), when I press the gas pedall i hear a ticking noise. It is more perceptible if in 4th or 5th gear.
The noise appears in the exact moment one press the gas pedal. If one presses to the botom, it will continue making the noise but much less.

I would say that are the valves/tapets. But in principle it doesn't make sense because the valves are ajusted hydraulically with the oil pressure. Could also be that the ignition is too early?

I would like to hear your comments, if somebody had the same problem.
Is it mechanical? Is it a matter of some electronic adjustment?

Thanks a lot, Carlos
