    Engine started knocking/ticking on drive home

    I was out running some errands today in my 98 ws6 A4. The only mods are SLP lid and a magnaflow catback. I was getting on the interstate and as I exited the ramp I began to hear a ticking or knocking noise. I was accelerating fast but was not at WOT. I pulled off and checked the oil level(fine) and it sounds like it is coming from the driver side of the motor. Any ideas what this could be? I noticed that the motor was getting warm(temp gauge went to 50%) and the oil pressure was floating around 40 on the gauge. I had to drive it home a few miles and the noise never got better or worse. After I got home and parked it the SES light came on the next time I started it. I had a new(reman) power steering pump put in a few weeks ago could something have gone wrong with the part or the install

    Do you think it would be ok to drive it 3 miles to a shop?

    here is a crappy cell phone video of the noise.

    That power steering pump sound low on fluid when you turn the wheels.

    It's hard to hear on my phone, I'll listen to it on my pc later, as long as you have oil pressure that means pump is working. Check fluids before moving. You should be ok to go to a shop. post codes.

    I have had some people indicate that they believe it is a rocker/pushrod issue. The ticking sound is hard to hear on the video because of it being on a cell phone. I will try and get a better video of it tomorrow

    I had the stealership tell me that I have 2 bad Air Check valves and that is what is causing my issue. They want 268 to replace them. How hard of a job is this to do?
