Lifters on a 2000 hyundai Accent

I took my hyundai accent to a shop and was told that due to the ticking sound one of my lifters was bad and i needed to change all 12 of them @ $27 a piece, then $140 for 2 hours labor which came up to $464 b4 taxes. I have two questions. How many lifters are on a 200 Hyundai accent? If one lifter is bad do u have to replace all of them?

    Thanks for all your help. The same shop also told me since i said that i needed a second opion that they could put an oil treament called Lucas in the car to stop the noise. That was done and the noise stopped.

3 valves per cylinder 4 cylinder engine, 3X4 is 12, so yes 12 is correct, no u don't have to change all of them, just the defective ones, the reason they want to do this is one of 2 things, there is a problem with the design of the original lifters and they want to update them, 2nd reason is they have been unable to isolated which lifter(s) are causing the tapping noise.

My Hyundai Accent 2001 auto. engine sound is like tik tik tik how to fix it


First check your oil. Hyndais also tic tic tic from the top of the motor but it is the noise of the fuel system. If you let it go dry on oil at one time you may now have bad lifters.

Just bought a hyundai accent 1.5 diesel the car has been parked up for 4 months it starts ok and ticks over ok but will only rev to 2000 revs and get to a speed of 25mph have you any ideas


I think your problem may be MICE. Check your upper and lower O2 Sensor wires. I believe they are both 4 wire sensors. If a wire has been chewed through this is what happens. I personally had this problem myself once in my 2000 Hyundai Accent. GOOD LUCK.

Lifter problem in 2001 Hyundai accent GL


The noise you hear could very well be a lifter. But that is not what is causing your engine light to come on. The engine light problem can be diagnosed by having the codes read. You can have this done for free at most national parts chains such as Advance or Auto Zone. Good luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

Tapping sound in The engine Head


Sounds like lifter noise. The best solution for lifter noise is, change the oil use a good quality oil , i would recommend a synthetic oil or at least a couple of quarts. Then get a bottle of MARVEL MYSTERY OIL this stuff works good add that to you oil when you change it and that should clear up any lifter noise. Another thing that might help use a higher grade gas a couple of times.
