Question about 2002 Hyundai Accent
Making clicking noise wen i start the engine is going in for a sevice nxt week will they be able to fix it and is it ok to drive still ?
Its okay to drive it until you get it fixed next week.they can perform a valve adjustment which will improve or eleminate the valve noise(tappet noise)some of these are done by using a feeler gage and loosening a lock nut and turning a screw adjustment until the proper clearance is obtained and some are adjusted by replacing a shim that sits on top of the valve lifter.

The problem with hydraulic lifters is they clog loose oil flow.I will give you a trick my dad taught me years ago.Drain two quarts of the engine oil and top it off with auto transmission fluid.No this will not damage engine.Let the vehicle idle till the noise is gone, may take an hour.Then change oil and filter.I have been using a quart of atf in my oil for 20 years and i drive high mileage vehicles with lots of miles.I am driving a 95 chevy van and a 01 buick both with over 200k and no oil leaks or sludge in the engine.Cheap fix.
