I've listened to the sound again yesterday on the hoist and my boss got in and shifted throught the gears. I'm almost positive it isn't the throwout bearing. The ticking ; as minimal as it is; can be heard mostly on the exhaust side of the block and I put a scope on the exhasut and It sounds like it's comin from there. From what everyone has been suggesting I think it might be a worn exhaust lifter on just one cylinder. The only thing that has me thinking though is that lifters should wear gradually, and this noise started right after that little rev limiter situation.?

BTW I really appreciate ur guys input on this.
Thanks crazyvadim
You really need to look into the insufficent free play in the clutch pedal,it can cause the clutch to stay partially disengaged and result in clutch slipping.I bet that soft clutch pedal and insufficent free play has to do something with that ticking noise.As far as clutch adjustment,that involves setting the correct amount of free play in the release mechanism,theres nothing in your service manual that says how to adjust free travel??

You said you put a scope on the exhaust,man maybe something got inside in your exhaust....little rock or something?? Maybe a nut,screw or bolt??

It's definately not something in the exhaust..... I just had the whole system down and there's nothing in it....
No nothing in my repair manual about adjustments....do you know where the adjustment is and how to do it?
There's about 105,000 miles on it(170,000 km)

105,000 miles sounds kinda low for a m52 to have hydraulic lifters failing,keep me updated on what you gonna i really want to know the outcome of this ticking sound.You need to adjust the clutch release mechanism,what kind of mechanism you have cable or hydraulic??

Im not familiar with BMWs but there should be an adjusting nut on the fork push rod or the clutch master cylinder push rod,to adjust it you need to shorten the rod to increase free travel.
