Yes, but there is still a lot of stuff to move out of the way to get in there and pull them. I would try all the chemical remedies for sticky lash adjusters (oil flush, marvel's mystery oil, etc.) first, then check the timing belt to see if a worn timing belt has let it slip a tooth and the valve timing is off for that reason before digging into the lifters. There used to be a forum that had video and audio from a subaru legacy this model before and after swapping out a bad lifter. Google for it and see if the noise matches.

I have a 2002 Subaru Legacy GT Limited. At 80,000 miles I had to replace head gasket, timing belt and water pump. Now at 185000 miles the engine seems to be making a lot more noise, more it seems when I...


I'm making a guess that if this is a noise that gets better (but doesn't go away) once the car has warmed up, you probably have one or more tappets that are out of adjustment. I have a feeling that they are hydraulic tappets on this vehicle. You are going to have to either try to trace the offending ones or swap out the lot if they are hydraulic.

Can you even adjust the lifters on a 1993 subaru legacy


You may just have aerated oil going past oil pump seal and causing lifter noise. Replacing the seal will cure that. There is no valve adjustment noted in the Subaru maintenance schedule, so I would not.

Should hydraulic tensinor be replaced with timing belt - 99 outbk


timing belts do no use a hydraulic tensioner, that is only used on engines with internal oil lubricated timing chains.

Loud Lifter possibly stuck! Help please!!


The ticking lifter on the Loyale is a common problem. There's a small o-ring between the cam tower and the head that, after so many hundreds of thousands of miles, would "fail" (not to a dangerous point) and the lifters would be partially starved of oil. It's not THAT serious... they can go hundreds of thousands of more miles like that. If you replace that o-ring, replace it with a spring reinforced ring so it doesn't fail. Those can be found at wwwdotthepartsbindotcom. As for the Legacy... those early 2.5s were cruddy. I've seen alot of them throw rods, lock up WAY before they should have. Best bet would be to replace it with a slightly underpowered but bullet-proof early model Legacy EJ22 or go with a newer EJ25. I would just go with the 2.2L.

Tappet noise


Sounds like worn lifter/cam lobe,quite normal when engine gets a few mles on it.Lifter is finding it hard to fill the extra clearance created by wear.What sort of oil are you using and is it clean?Wear in an engine will lower your overall oil pressure as well,not generaly enough to worry about but it does contribute to the problem.At idle or when cold is generaly when this happens?
