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?

Re: lifters on a 2000 hyundai Accent
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.

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.
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!
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.
Hi had a similar problem last week with my 2000 accent took car to dealer who put it on the computer, turned out that the 'mass airflow unit' needed replacing. Very expensive part cost £182 and labour £36 (Hyundai dealer) sorry!!!!
