ticking sound when idle??... timing belt recall??

when i'm sitting in idle, i can hear this ticking noise going off in the engine bay, only when idle. when i gas it its gone. it sounds like the timing belt is "squeaking" or something. i remember a recall for the timing belt awhile back. could this have anytihng to do with it?? is it even dangerous at all? i hate bringin the car in for just checkups like this. anyone know??

There are a bunch of people, including myself, who have had this problem. If it is the same thing that I am hearing, then it is not the timing belt. It is some kind of valve in the air intake. It is normal and there is nothing you can/should do about it.

Here's a related thread:

hey I had the same ticking noise, it increased with RPMs sounded to be coming from rear of the motor, it turned out to be the rear camshaft was bad and I work I Honda so I took it there and they said its common problem in this generation (2012) they replaced rear camshaft and rocker arms and ticking is gone, for it to be fully diagnosed it had to be torn apart, only cost 60$ for them to tear the motor down to the point of breakdown since Im an employee at the factory.
