To see if this is anything that you can repair, drain the oil, change the filter, put new oil back in. If the problem is still present, the oil pump may have failed or the pick up tube has come loose inside the oil pan.

Do they wor for noisey tappets


Noisy lifters (tappets) are caused by wear in the valve train, this is a fact of life for engines and normal. Two choices, go to the next higher viscosity oil(which will only quiet it a little), or have the valve train rebuilt. I personally have seen noisy engines run 10-15 years with no major failures!

Previous problem - hydraulic lifter noisy - car first lost oil hose to turbo - before this lifters, etc. were fine- 2003 PT cruser w/ turbo


that oil hose probably lost enough engine oil to starve lifters... but then again, that engine shouldn't have lifters since it an overhead cam... suspect your tappets were starved of oil... might come around, might not...

What is tappet settings


Hydraulic tappets are tappets that contain a small hydraulic piston, pressurised by the engine's lubricating oil supply.[5] Although the piston does not move appreciably or frequently, it acts as a hydraulic spring that automatically adjusts the tappet clearance according to the oil pressure. This makes the valve actuation self-adjusting and there is no need to adjust the rockers. Hydraulic tappets depend on a supply of clean oil at the appropriate pressure. When starting a cold engine, with low oil pressure, hydraulic tappets are often noisy for a few seconds, until they position themselves correctly.

An intermitant noisy tappet ????????????? Tappets seem unadjustable.


you have hydraulic tappets,they are not adjustable,use engine flush every 20k oil change,(leave in system for 30 mins with engine running) then before you drain, blip the gas upto 3500 revs several times to clear the oilways of sludge.

A fairly consistent tapping noise from the top of the engine between 50 - 70 mph. After 70-75 mph in seems to quiet down.


sounds like a lifter is bleeding out or starving for oil at low revs
check oil level and oil pressure
if thats good lifter or tappet clearance next to check
is engine seviced regularly?
slugde build up can cause problems also
if V6 petrol see a lot of worn valve guides causing noise worse when warm and noise comes in and out at 1200RPM
tappet clearance issue noise would be there all the time
lifter can also come and go while holding revs up

No oil pressure on an audi 2 liter 20 valve engine Very noisy tappets


Did you check the pressure first? Noisy tappets don't necessarily mean low pressure, sometimes they simply wear out.
Otherwise, either your oil pump is bad, or the oil pickup screen located inside the oil pan area is clogged up. Clean the screen first and then check the pressure...
