Guys, my 1999 CLK 430 engine sounds strange. The sound is coming from the passanger side of the engine and it basically sounds like the drivers side just louder. The car has 47k on it. Its not a tap but more like a ticking sound if that makes any sense? Could it be carbon in the intake? I don't want to take it to the dealer if I don't have to.

could it be hydrocompensator... too brief discription.
does the frequency of "ticking" increase with rpm increase?

Well, there is a recall on the harmonic balancer for your car, so i would take it to the dealer annyway for them to inspect the defect and have them diagnose the ticking while they are checking it out.

That'a a good idea. The car was in for service in December when was the recall announced? how would I know if mine was bad?
