2012 Range Rover ticking noise, driving me crazy!!

Hello, not sure how to post a video but I do have one. My 2012 Range Rover HSE started ticking when when I started it up about a year ago. It ticks constantly and more so when I push on the gas. I’ve had it “diagnosed” literally 6 different places, all said timing chain/tensioners so I spent a fortune and it still ticks. Took it to other places with them not knowing I had the timing chains replaced and they said timing chain, then when I told them I had it replaced they apparently checked the job and said it was done correctly so they then “diagnosed” it as piston slap and not sure it can be fixed. When I’ve looked at other forums regarding this topic I come up with lifter issues, vvt issues, camshaft tensioner??? I am at the end of my rope, I don’t know anything about cars so I feel as though I am getting the run around and even my neighbors complain that my truck sounds bad. Has anyone had this issue and a solution??? Thanks in advance! I love love love my car but can’t stand the noise much longer or the money I’ve already lost on it.

Oh wow! Thank you, Dave. Since I already supposedly had the job done (and paid a fortune) is it possible for someone just to replace the tensioner again? Could they have possibly used that old tensioner in the video? I know that the labor would cost a lot.

I don't know, You would have to ask a Indy LR Mechanic that has tackled this issue. Its very possible that your engine has been damaged at this point due to this. But again you need someone to inspect it properly.
This is one of the reasons I stay away from the 5.0 engine. Both of our LR3 4.4 V8's have been flawless.
