Question about 1991 Nissan Maxima
168,000 miles on it. The upper engine area started making tapping sounds. We tried the oil change with the risoline additive to see if that would clean the lifters and such. Dulled the tapping sound but it didn't go away. I'm trying to sell the car. It would be nice to know what it was so I could call this a mechanics special or something.
Other than the tapping sound, it always ran well. Started right up, ran smooth. Just had the brakes replaced last year.
Any indication of what that tapping sound would be can be very helpful.
Thank you, Marilyn
The tapping sound will either be a worn tappet or it could be a cam follower, either way try putting a can of ametech restore in it works for me
