No, they are hydraulic and cannot be adjusted. More likely one is collapsed.

SOURCE: upper engine knock

I had the same problem with my 1999 Cobra Convertible, it sounded like valve problem, but ended up being, a wrist pin noise! Replaced the enging and trans, found a new Engine thru Trans, with everything on it for $4300, sold the old one (with the noise) on e-bay, for $4300 plus shipping.
The drivetrain now has about 10k miles on it, no problems! Have someone check for wrist pin noise!
This is a Roush Cobra Convertible, I will sell for $12,500, with a new top! Pictures avalible!

I NEED TO FIND OUT WHY MY 2002 FORD TAURUS SOMETIMES HAVE A LITTLE KNOCKING NOISE UNDER THE CAR ON THE DRIVERS SIDE


First it is a 2002. If the noise happens at start up it could be lifters(tapping) or crank shaft rod bearings(knocking). Both are expensive to fix at a garage. More than the car is worth. My advice is to keep check on the oil. Start saving for another car.

Check the oil pressure manually with a gauge. Make sure you have oil pressure. Perhaps you need a new oil pump, or new lifters. Get a professional opinion from a non interested party. Save money, get a diagnosis.

Knock in cold start up fo 95 Ford Taurus SE


If its a ticking noise Sounds like some sticky lifters. The heads get build up on them over the years and it takes awhile for the oil to get thin (hot) enfo to lube them. The noise is them being dry.

2003 Taurus. Oil light came on. Checked level. Good. Drove another 5 miles, now have engine knock on top side of motor. Thought maybe oil pump malfunction. In the middle of nowhere, drove 50 miles home....


Before driving it anymore I would have someone test the actual oil pressure using a mechanical test gauge to see how much , or little, oil pressure you actually have. The knocking noise could be a hydraulic lifter that is partially collapsed due to low oil pressure or a rod bearing that has been damaged from low oil pressure. If it is just a lifter that is making noise then there's a pretty good chance that the lifter will quiet back down once the oil pressure is normal again. If it turns out that your oil pressure is normal both at an idle and at highway speeds then the noise may be unrelated. You can cause some serious damage by continuing to operate any engine that is low on oil pressure even if the dipstick shows it to be full of oil. Hope this helps and good luck!

It could very well be a valve or lifter. The low oil may also cause the lifters or rods to knock.
As long as you aren't loosing oil or coolant, jeep runs good, and the knocking is not extreme, than add oil and you should be ok.

2001 FORD FOCUS LOAD TICKING NOISE


it very well can be that depending on the severity of the ticking noise, if it sounds like its coming from the top of the engine, place your hand on it only when you first start it up and if you can feel it knocking slightly and if the noise dies away once warmed up id say its your lifter, if its a heavier knocking rather than a ticking and comes from below or bottom end of engine it may be big end bearing, not good. try putting some engine treatment through the engine oil and make sure you run it in as directions state then change the oil and filter and see if that helps :)
