Question about 2000 Hyundai Accent
My 2000 hyundai accent 1.3 12v keeps making ticking noises when cold i think its the tappets and i want to adjust them but i dont know what distance to leave them
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
