it is common for the oil pump to go bad after changing the timing belt.

the pump is located in the oil pan, and nothing drives it, it works as a sucking action....

SOURCE: Valve lifters have staeted tapping. What can I add

Before considering additives, check the oil pressure if it's low, that must be diagnosed. If pressure is good, change oil with a good grade lubricant and add a pint of marvel oil. Change every 3000miles and it should over time quiet it down. If lifters are worn, no chemical will repair them though.
I know you are looking for a "magic bullet" and my answer is likely diapointing, but that's just a fact.

SOURCE: I think oil pump went out, is ti inside the oil pan?

fishinic: the oil pump is on the end of the crankshaft at the front.
you may have a clogged up screen at the bottom of the oil pick up tube which goes to th bottom of the oil pan.

SOURCE: 2001 lincoln navigater lifters tapping

did you by chance had the oil filter changed because there is a antidrain back valve in the filter,also if the filter is plugging up it will bypass to line pressure.causing lower oil pressure.try the filter first then have oil pressure checked when cold and again when hot.

I was quoted $500 to replace all the lifters. Is this a good price?


That is a ridiculously high price to replace lifters on a 4 or 6 cylinder engine. On the Mitsubishi 4 cylinder motor, the only thing that is needed to do is remove the valve cover and remove the rocker rod. (2 rods which hold the rocker assembly.) Next is remove the lifters from the bottoms of the rockers and pop in the new ones. Be sure to soak the new lifters in oil for 24-48hrs prior to install so they are pre-filled before install. Replace the rocker assembly and torque down to specs. replace valve cover and then start the vehicle. Check that there is no loud tapping noise and do not race the engine until the lifters have pumped up with engine oil. You should replace oil and filter for this engine work as well.

01 crown vic p71 do i need a new oil pump .. Gauge jumps up and down. Motor has vibration


Tough to say. The lifter making the noise could be allowing oil pressure to escape. Or it may be dry for oil because oil is not getting to it.
You may have to take the lifters out to see if it is a lifter problem or lack of oil.

I own a 93 toyota pick up,just replace the headgasket,after couple weeks of driving it,i nothice power loss,and alot of engiane knocking...and the started noticeing gas smell on my oil dip,and its very...


if its kknocking thats not a good sign thats usually a motor rebuild but if its a tap then it could be a lifter or something loose under the valve cover ive had the tapping noise and knocking happen to me tapping on a 67 chevy truck turns out it was the lifters then knocking in a 92 honda accord turns out it was a bent rod so it had to have the motor rebuilt as far as power loss it may have a clog in a fuel line or something shouldnt be the pump unless the vehicle doesnt start or it shuts off while driving, and the smell of gas on the oil dipstick im not to familiar with that but im positive that thats not good;

I need the torque specs for my rocker arm and push rods i cant find them any were on the internet


THERE IS NO TORQUE SPEC FOR HYDROLIQUE LIFTERS
YOU ADJUST VALVES PER SPECIFICATION USUALLY
TIGHTEN UNTIL NO FREEPLAY BETWEEN LIFTER AND PUSHROD
THEN 1/2 OR 3/4 TURN MORE SO HYDROLIQUE LIFTER CAN PUMP
OIL UP THE PUSHROD TO LUBRICATE TOP END
LOOK UP SPEC TO BE SHURE OF FINAL TURN

Lifters making tapping noise. whats the cause??? 2003 mercedes sl55 amg. v8 kompressor


1 of two things. They are hyd lifters so there is no adjustment to be done. So it is either a lack of oil pressure or an odd thing but does happen, a small piece of derbis will get into the pressure bleed hole, the oil is push out as the camshaft comes up to open the valve, the lifter will collapes and not re-pump up due to the hole being closed off. Im quite sure AMG rquires Mobil1 oil, sometimes extream temps either higher or lower will change viscosity requirements. you may need the 15W 50 to maintain enough pressure where you are at or it is possible the oil is broke down so bad that it is no longer able to maintain the correct amount of PSI. 1st things first. Put a mechanical oil pressure gauge on the motor, observe pressure after complete warm up. If it is too low go to the 15W 50 weight oil. If it is an oil pressure issue two things should happen. 1 the lifter making noise should be farthest from the pump. If not you should do a very carefull inspection check psi with mechanical gauge 1st if it's low, then you'll have to find the causeor cause. if psi is within spec you have a bad lifter IE: dirt or collapsed spring.

I have a light ticking sound in the engine. Could


hi, to me it sounds like lifter problem if it was a bottom end problem then the noise would be their all the time as this is always surrounded by oil so im thinking lifter as it takes few minutes for the oil to work to the top of the engine correctly.

What you could try is go out and buy some good quality high millage oil this is thicker and protects high millage engines from any oil seal problems and stops any slight tapping noise you hear from the hydraulic lifters. So give that a try first and see how you get on failing that it would be a case of replacing the lifters.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

I have a 89 ford ranger with a 2.9 v 6 and the lifters are tapping it has good oil pressure .


Very common problem, some 2.9L were mechanical lifters that required adjustment, others have trouble with the hydraulic liters being noisy.

TAPPING IN VALVES


ENGINE CLICKING NOISES
A clicking or tapping noise that gets louder when you rev the engine is probably "tappet" or upper valvetrain noise caused by one of several things: low oil pressure, excessive valve lash, or worn or damaged parts.
First, check the engine dipstick to see if the oil level is low. If low, add oil to bring it back up to the full mark. Is the engine still noisy? Check your oil pressure. A low gauge reading (or oil warning light) would indicate a serious internal engine problem that is preventing normal oil pressure from reaching the upper valvetrain components. The cause might be a worn or damaged oil pump, a clogged oil pump pickup screen or a plugged up oil filter. Using too thick a viscosity of motor oil during cold weather can also slow down the flow of oil to the upper valvetrain, causing noise and wear.
COLLAPSED LIFTER NOISE
Worn, leaky or dirty lifters can also cause valvetrain noise. If oil delivery is restricted to the lifters (plugged oil galley or low oil pressure), the lifters won't "pump up" to take up the normal slack in the valvetrain. A "collapsed" lifter will then allow excessive valve lash and noise.
VALVE LASH NOISE
If you can rule out lubrication-related problems as a cause, the next step would be to remove the valve cover(s) and check valve lash. On older import engines, mechanical lifters require periodic valve lash adjustments (typically every 30,000 miles). Too much space between the tips of the rocker arms and valve stems can make the valvetrain noisy -- and possibly cause accelerated wear of both parts.
To measure (and adjust) valve lash, you need a feeler gauge. The gauge is slid between the tip of the valve stem and rocker arm (or the cam follower or the cam itself on overhead cam engines) when the piston is at top dead center (valve fully closed). Refer to a manual for the specified lash and adjustment procedure. Also, note whether the lash spec is for a hot or cold engine (this makes a big difference!).
On engines with hydraulic lifters, oil pressure pumps up the lifters when the engine is running to maintain zero lash in the valvetrain. This results in quiet operation. So if the rocker arms are clattering, it tells you something is amiss (bad lifter or worn or damaged parts) or the rocker arms need adjusting.

Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Overheating and lifter tapping


this engine is in a bad condition and the cylinder head will have to be remove and the lifter replaced. this engine overheated to far and when the cylinder head is off have the the head bolts threads replaced with hylicoils as this will pull out when installing the head.again
