SOURCE: i have a 100k on my 1992 wrangler i have a little lifter noise

If you have an inline 6, 100K is nothing! Lifter noise can be due to low oil pressure. if pressure is good, it can be from cam wear, lifter being sticky inside, or a rocker pivot being a little worn. Most just get a bit sticky (internal hydraulic plunger inside a lifter or two). To fix that I generally change the oil to a good synthetic, add lucas additive or marvel oil and just give it some time to dissolve the gunk. It took time to get that way so don't expect the tapping to go away instantly...Most times it will begin to lessen in a day or two or up to a few weeks.

SOURCE: Loud lifter noise

Over time and miles the lifters tend to collapse and the only way to quiet the noise is to replace them or use something like lucas to try to keep the pressure up in the lifters. If you did replace the lifters it would help with performance because when the lifters start to collapse the valves do not open all of the way. Hope this helps!

Lifter noise lexus ls430 2001


Lifter noise(s) can be a combination of things........ 1. High mileage on engine. 2. Not using the correct oil. 3. Lots of sludge build up in motor due to lack of oil changes and the quality of oil that you are using. Hydraulic lifters rarely fail but it does happen, given the conditions on how the car was maintained. I can offer you a solution but no guarantees on what might quiet this lifter down. It's a 50/50 chance. On your next oil change, I would recommend taking your vehicle to a facility that sells BG products. It's a company that formulates chemicals that have great cleaning properties to your fuel system and oil lubricating systems in your engine and at the same time, it is safe on all rubber seals in your engine. (Especially Higher Milage Vehicles) Ask for BG MOA to be added in you next oil change or if you do your own oil changes, you can find this product on line and can purchase from there. What the BG MOA does, it helps break up sludge and build up on the inside of your engine and helps to free up your valves, piston rings and noisy lifter(s). Hydraulic lifter(s) tend to make noise when they can't sufficiently pump up with oil due to sludge and build up blocking the oil inlet passage. Worn lifters on cold start up may be very noticeable but eventually the ticking goes away after engine warms up and the hydraulic lifter(s) had time to pump up. Make sure that you don't have a exhaust manifold leaking as well due to a crack or a failing exhaust manifold gasket. This can also emit a ticking noise in which can be misdiagnosed for a ticking lifter. A leaking exhaust manifold can usually be identified by the ticking noise getting louder and faster when accelerating and quieter and slower when decelerating. Ticking noise is loud on cold start ups but not noticeable at all when engine is at operating temperature. Hope this will help you out.

I have a 2003 gmc Sierra half ton 4.8 liter that has a knock that sounds like lifters


There is,If you do the lifter you could be after something else,The noise sounds like a collapsed lifter,A collapse lifter can cause a misfire,The 2003 GMC sierra or I should say the 4.8 engines suffer from a cut O-ring between the oil pump screen and the oil pump causing oil areation,resulting in lifter noise,The noise will be present a cold start and then diminish at warm up.12_3_2012_8_08_44_am.gif

Intermittent noise not a misfire sounds internal like a rod or valve or lifter. No check engine light, car has good power. U only hear noise after car is warm and not all the time. Could it b my belts? Any...


After it's warmed up to operating temp, if it makes the noise at idle but goes away reving the engine, I would guess that a lifter has gone bad. Rod bearings as a rule knock all the time. It's hard to diagnose these things over the internet, because there are so many variables when it comes to noises.

You need to warm the car up and then while it is running, open the hood and try to pinpoint the source. lifter noise will sound like a "tick" and come from somewhere near the top. Rod bearings will sound like a 'knock" and will come from the bottom of the engine.

How to stop lifter and or vavle noise in car motor?


Generally if it's being caused by wear you can replace what's worn...rocker arm, lifter , cam etc. If noise just began, sometimes an additive like marvel oil will clean out the lifter and make it quiet, but it takes time...It took time to get that way.Lucas additive sometimes also works for that. But, as I said, if it's from wear you need to replace the worn parts.

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

I have a 1998 hyundai excel 1.5litre


If the noise is emanating from under the valve cover, it isn't the timing chain. It can be a stuck lifter and you might want to try a lifter cleaner from an auto parts store. I think you will need to change the oil after adding the cleaner and running the engine for a while. If the engine uses mechanical lifters, the noise could be coming from a bent rocker arm or a worn push rod.
You may be able to narrow down the source of the noise by using a longer screwdriver, placing the tip at various places and resting the handle on the bone behind your ear. Obviously, stay well clear of anything rotating.

Sounds like you didn't run the engine in. Check the oil for mangled main bearings.
