I bought a 04 with 159xxx on it for 1000 bucks.
Needed a ball joint and two sway bar links.
Finished repairs and started using it for a work car
Drove it from my home in Iowa to Sioux Falls then to watford City ND.
Once I was up here I had three days off so I drove it to glacier National Park park and drove through the park then traveled back to watford city.
I have a 14 hour trip back home after this.
When I bought it I noticed it had an engine tick which wasn’t unusual as I’ve heard these usually get that with some.
Had a 30 year Honda tech look at it and he said it was fine to drive anywhere.
Well I put it to the ultimate test with my 34 hour trip I just took and it hasn’t gotten worse, burnt any oil, or noticed any issues so far.
Has anyone else had this tick and used there pilot for long trips?
Much appreciate the input if you have any and I will keep you updated on the many more long trips I have with this pilot.
Thanks

The timing belt, tensioner, water pump and fluid was replaced about 50k ago.
I didn’t think of the spark plugs I’ll try that and let you know thanks!!

There is ticking, clacking and clanking with engines....They each mean different things. Perhaps its time to check valve clearance.

Try using a mechanics stethoscope to locate where the noise is coming from. Check PS pump, alternator, timing chain area, cylinder head, and engine block down low.
