Noises

I have a 2007 Chevy Cobalt LT with 132,000 miles. Whenever I start it and accelerate there is the weird clicking noise. What could it be?

Is it speed or rpm dependent? Happen all the time? Where do you hear it? Can you hear it when the car isnt moving?

You can hear it wether the car is moving or not, it gets louder when you speed up. It seems to be coming from the passenger side but I'm not entirely sure if that where it is. Yes, it happens all the time.

Does it sound like a knock or a tick?

When is the last time you checked the oil? Sounds like valvetrain or timing chain noise.

Has the timing chain been serviced or replaced?
