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.

I have a 2002 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo 8 cylinder engine and it just started making a tapping noise when it's running. The oil hasn't been changed in awhile. Could this make a difference or any other...


yes it most certainly can, thick oil can block hydrolic lifters and make tappets become loose and even fail. that is a good start point because the next is a worn cam shaft

2002 grand cherokee engine tapping loudly


My first guess would be a failing valve lifter. They can become weak with age and not able to hold oil pressure.
Especially in an engine with that many miles on the clock.
If the noise is constant you may be able to find out which cylinder by running a compression test. maybe.

Valve tapping sound ,changed oil and filter still making same sound now what? 2000 hyundai accent


Possible there is a need to set the gaps in the valve clearance and so you might need the assistance of the service center. If the regular service check was not done please include this work as a routine check up. If the noise is high specially in the morning please have it checked up as it can be due to problems with engine bearings.

On my 1994 L200 3000 mitsubishi there is a tappet which has stuck and is rattling,can you help.


Mits are well know for top end noisedue to hydrolic tappets. Note we are talking about a tapping or clicking sound here not a knock. You can try using an engine flush product if the noise is bad and then changing your oil. Follow manufactures instructions on the engine flush product. I have also used Marvel Mystery Oil (available at Walmart and most auto parts houses) with some success on this. Generally if the oil is not changed regularily eventually the tapping noise starts happening. FYI: hydrolic tappet can and do fail but generally the noise is associated with not maintaing oil changes

I brought accent DLS ,i wouid like to check engine health


step 1: remove the valve cover///step 2: if you see nice gold color around the rods, lifters, and valves and you do not see any black sludge in between the lifters the engine is pretty clean and will also tell you if the car religiously has been getting its oil change every 3k. Also start up the car; listen for tapping noises BUT MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE VALVE COVER ON. If you dont hear any abnormal tapping noises then your engine is solid. Try to stay away from arco or cheap gasoline. shell, mobil, and CHEVRON is really good gas for the engine.
