Are they hydraulic tappets?? not adjustable but a mechaniics bodge if they are hydraulic ,,,,put a 5 sec squeeze of washing up liquid into oil filler and half a litre of diesel -----run for about 2/3 days without doing any boy racer stuff ,,,drain oil and refill with a diesel grade oil like shell rotella or anything cheap off of the supermarket shelf and refill with this and add some more washing up liquid .run for a couple of weeks then change oil and filter .and refill with a cheap diesel/petrol oil from supermarket and change oil every 6000kms or 5000miles or a least once a year more frequent if low mileage .this should free off the build up of gum in the hydraulic tappets without stripping the engine.expensive oil is well known for causing this as poly methyl methacrylate which is used to hold the oil viscosity has a nasty habit when full of crud from not changing oil regulary to clag up.moral of story change oil often but a filter every third oil change

My 97 plymouth voyager makes a ticking noise when it is cold but when it is warm the ticking noise goes away what would cuase this?

Usually a ticking from the engine is caused by oil not coating the tappets. Tappets are the rods that control the intake and exhaust valves. Once the engine warms up oil is circulated to those parts and the ticking stops.
Mopar is famous for that

Hi we have a hyundai accent 1997 mvi it is making a ticking noise from the engien we thought it was the tapets but they look fine any one have any ideas what it could be and how to fix it

Depending on exactly where on the engine it's coming from,it could be just the fuel injectors.They become noisy because of certain gasoline(low grade independent refinery company).I had a 1995 accent that had been fueled with SHELL gas.One day when I had revved it to 6000rpm in all 4 shifts.It was tapping like hell and I thought I blew a lifter (tappet).But it went away the next day. the car tough out till 2008 with 260,000km.Rusted out because of Canadian winters.

Clicking when engine is ticking over

Most Hyundai's have hydraulic tappets for over head cams, so if its ticking you have a noise tappet. Try changing the oil and in that does not help try an additive to clean the oil gallery's and flush the engine. Also low oil pressure can cause htis fault as well so get it tested if you can.

1998 Hyundai accent 1.3 engine noise tapping sound

sounds to me that it is using to much oil and its time for a rebuild or replacement. the noise you here is most likely lifters and tappets, when it gets low on oil it will do this, and if it gets to low it will burn up the rod and main bearings. what you need to do is deside what you want to do with the car, rebuild engine or replace, i don't have any idea on price, but all you have to do is call a local salvage yard and get a price on a used engine, and then a shop that does rebuilds. and weight the diiference, i think you will find it will be cheaper to just get another car. i can give you a gusstament on cost,used engine, 400 to 600 + labor, rebuild 1000 to 2000+ labor. remember thies are just guessaments. you will have to call around your area to get the correct prices.
