Pritty much. The lifters are making the sound. Chevy motors do it as well. I do not like it but both manufacturers say it is ok. I do not hink they should have metal on metal like that. The only 2 things that the triton was known for is the head gaskets leaking from the head on the rear passenger side of the motor down on the starter and coolant leaking from the heater core hose down on the passenger rear coil and spark plug. Good motors they seem to run for ever.

If it is a very light ticking then it is the fuel injectors, if it is fairly loud it is most likely the valve followers, known as lifters in non overhead camshaft engines.

What is the fuel consumption on 2007 opel corsa 1400i lite hatchback


Hi Adel,

About 9.5 to 10 Km/L... (
realistically)

Here in the USA we don't speak much metric
but I know our EPA ratings (miles per gallon) are
almost always pure fantasy...

Opels (admire though I may (QUIT in 1975))
have not been deliberately imported here for 41 years...

What that in metric?

Check an Opel web-site (with a lot of whining going on)
9.5 to 10 Km/L... That would be PARTY TIME here.

Hi Ahmed. I'd remove the VIN number from you description, it's not really safe to publish that.

The oil filter will be at the very bottom end of the engine, usually brightly colored. It will be just forward from the sump and is a screw on fitment.

Take the car to another garage and get your money back from the one who could not find it.

Good luck

2006 F-150 Triton 5.4 Engine -- ticking sound at idle on the top of the motor. Is it a phaser or injector problem? Does it need to be fixed? I just bought the truck 50k on it.


this engine has a real problem with the spark plugs coming loose, the noise they cause is a ticking noise, this may be the problem.

Loud tick & knocking for a 1zzfe engine from 2001 toyota corolla


from what you are describing it sounds like a lifter/valve issue, i am a ford man i don't know if toyota do the same thing, but if they use inserts for the valve seats it is possible a valve seat has been dropping just has not dropped fully out to cause engine damage. buying a new engine will actually cost you less than an overhaul/rebuild anymore. the parts will cost you almost as much as a new motor will with all the machining that maybe needed.

An oil leak has nothing to do with the timing. The rubber in a seal tends to get harder the older the car gets. If you are trying to buy the car and this is the only real problem you find, ask them to fix this problem or you won't buy the car. The car should have lots more miles left on it, if you keep the fluids changed and drive sensibly in the future.

Good luck.
