I'm sorry, but that's a question best left for a mechanic. No one can really answer that for you. Your area, the motor and model of your durango are all variables taken into account at price time. No one can give you that answer here.

Call several shops, including a Dodge dealer. Pick the one you favor and, take a few minutes to contact the Better Business Bureau and find out if the business is a BBB member and is deemed "reputable".

Good luck.

SOURCE: lifters on a 2000 hyundai Accent

3 valves per cylinder 4 cylinder engine, 3X4 is 12, so yes 12 is correct, no u don't have to change all of them, just the defective ones, the reason they want to do this is one of 2 things, there is a problem with the design of the original lifters and they want to update them, 2nd reason is they have been unable to isolated which lifter(s) are causing the tapping noise.

SOURCE: lifter tick

I doubt it. A lifter tick is caused by low oil pressure or a faulty/clogged lifter.

open the valve cover and feel all your lifters to see which is loose.

spin your push rod with your fingers while tightening your rocker arm(should be 5/8) once you can not spin the push rod any more give it 3/4 of a turn and your good to go repeat for any loose rocker arms.

SOURCE: my car is a 1994 galant 4G63 and last week i

I am not an expert on the these engines but the 94 galant (in the USA) had a 4g64 engine (2.4 inline 4 cyl fuel injected). On the 4g64 engine the valves are hydrolic meaning there is no manual adjustment. YOur mechanic made a mistake in that the valve lash adjusters should have been reinstalled back in their original position. Being that was not done there is not much you can do other than replace them with new ones. By the way the valve lash adjusters should be partialy filled with oil so there is little or no plunger action when the adjuster is depressed. Your mechanic should have placed them in a can of clean engine oil and depressed the plunger on the valve lash adjusters to cause them to fill with oil. If you can still depress the adjusted after it is filled with oil then it is defective. By the way, this is not an unusual problem as many high mileage Galants make a fair bit of valve noise. You can get more details from a Haynes manual (about $20 at autozone)

You sure it is coming from the lifters ? The injectors make the same kind of noise. But you can try changing the oil more often every three thousand miles is what is recommended instead of the five thousand like some people tell you. I have a 1998 dodge 5.2 with 199584 miles on it no problems changed oil every three thousand miles.

I have a ticking sound coming from the rear of the car in between the rear tries sounds like a clock ticking, what is it

An increasingly noisy ticking sound coming from your engine could indicate a lifter malfunction. I once had an exhaust valve lifter 'mushroom' where the cam makes contact with the flat tappet and the lifter wouldn't move up & down smoothly. This kept the exhaust valve from letting out the unspent fuel through the exhaust and the fuel had only one place to go: past the rings & into the oil. My cylinders needed rehoned.

It could be just a lifter gone bad. Unless you're into major HP(say over 400) you've probly got hydraulic lifters. This type builds up oil pressure to take up its 1/8" or so of slack they'll see when the engine hasn't recently run .

Ticking noise - probably a lifter

Could be valve lifter, cam shaft wrong grade oil etc.
Take the rocker cover off and have a look.

Ticking coming from right bank replaced the 2 i thought but still is ticking

You really did not explain at all. What was ticking? It could be injectors, valve lifters, etc.?

If it is fuel injectors, they are supposed to tick.
It is when they don't tick that you worry about them.

If it is valve lifters, then you need to try adjusting them. They may be hydraulic, but still could be beyond the range the oil can account for.

Let us know more, and we can explain more.

I have an '06 Dodge Durango Limited, and when I first crank the engine there is a ticking noise coming from the right side of engine. The noise goes away after it's been running for 5 minutes. Any ideas?

See if the cam or rocker arms are worn. New lifters and other worn parts won't work. Also make sure you have good oil pressure and the oil is getting to the top of the engine.

Lifter tick

I suggest that you change the oil and use a decent but inexpensive brand, along with marvel oil. Run it like that for about 1,000 miles, drain it then add better oil, new filter and any treatment (I like lucas and marvel...they both do their job) Don't let oil change intervals go much above 3500 miles, unless using synthetics..

Rapping/ticking sound in my 2001 Chevy tracker engine.

does it go tick tick tick tick and when it warms up it stops or goes quiet?
its your lifters not getting enough oil
when u change your oil it will stop till that oil gets worn out
you will have to replace the lifters or it can also be a slack oil pump not pumping oil around the engine like it should
