Ticking sounds started at around 1000K and sounds external on the driver side and is better heard with the hood down listening though the front wheel wells.There is also a slight metallic grinding sound for about two to three seconds in the engine when it falls back to 700 rpm which I noticed with the hood open.Sounds like somethingsout of balance or round.There is also a heavy smell of oil in the car for a few minutes after cold start up when the car is not started for long periods of time but no signs of oil leaks.DREAD the thought of going to my dealer who after talking to really has no idea what a bullitt is and what,s going on with the car.

Thanks for all the info to date.

I've heard of a few cases of exhaust leaks which sounds like a metallic ticking.

The smell... i've got a real nasty smell (ha ha, my car, that is) coming from the vents when i fire it up.

Kinda smells like oil but i wouldn't go that far.

It damn near smells like burning plastic with some oil in there. i dunno....
