Hello! Thanks for taking the time to read this! My Mazda 3i has been acting up a bit lately, where the engine has been getting louder (particularly in 4th gear, though it’s a pretty quiet car so I might not be able to tell in lower gears). This morning, there also was a faint ticking, 1/second or so that went away once the car warmed up.
Recent work that has been done to it: Brakes replaced, Oil changed, fluids topped off.
Any idea what’s going on? Thanks!
