Those 5.4 engines are a very noisy engine... there is a tsb that says not to use aftermarket oil filters due to the seal deteriorating and clogging the engine, says to replace the cam phasers. I would also check the exhaust manifolds, they are known to crack, which also gives a ticking sound.

Ticking noise from engine upon start up but eventually goes away oil pressure gauge doesn't move at all when started or shut off. Gauge stays all the way past 80! Help me please!


Since changing the oil sender made no change, dash gauge may be dead. Hook up cheap mechanical gauge to see what is really going on. Ticking when first started is probably a lifter and may not be a big problem. How many miles on engine?

What does base circle area mean when doing a valve job ?


Base circle is the camshaft lower diameter where the lifter rides before the lobe starts to come into play.
The Lost Art of Valve Adjustment
Your second question depends entirely on the engine in question.
On a pushrod V8 the oil usually is metered by the valve lifters and goes to the rockers through hollow pushrods; a few drops of oil are released by the lifters during each valve stroke. Until full oil pressure and warm oil are in all of the oil passages, the oil to the rockers will be less than that of a warm running engine. The rockers really don't need huge quantities of oil, it is a lot harder to get oil to the valve stems.

You may want to make sure you have good oil pressure and the valves are properly adjusted [even on a hydraulic lifter system there are limits to how much the lifters will self adjust].

If you have an overhead cam engine, you will need lots of oil on the lifters and cams.

My 2002 Jeep Sahara, 88,000 miles, was making extreme tapping noise for 2 weeks - now nothing. Was told needed to replace lifters! however, no noise for 1 month after inspection. Why no noise now? Am I...


If the noise is gone,the lifter is unstuck,don't worry about it.I would run 2 cans of a high detergent additive to the oil just to clean up the lifters before the next oil change and use a high quality oil on the next oil change.
Rislone makes a good product for a lifter cleaning. PUT 2 CANS IN THE OIL.

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.

Tikking noise coming from engine


Yes, you're right, those could be the cause. Also, possible it's a collapsed hydraulic valve lifter, if your car has hydraulic operated (from engine oil) valve lifters. At any rate, it sounds like something loose in the valve train-valve lifter with push rod engines; or cam followers {rocker arms) with overhead cam engines that push on the top of valve stems .
Check a repair manual to see if your engine has valves that can be and need adjusting. Engines with valve lifters do not require periodic adjustment for proper valve clearance. Engines with rocker arms do require checking the valve clearance every couple of years or so.

1997 S10 Pickup with a noise lifter . The engine have 179000 miles should I fix the lifter or rebuild engine.


Before spending lots of money on a repair try this. Purchase a can of Seafoam Motor Treatment at most auto and marine parts stores. Add 1.5 ounces of Seafoam to the crankcase for each quart of oil the engine holds. Drive your truck 50 miles and then change the oil/filter. Repeat the procedure and then drive the truck and check the oil regularly looking for it to get very dirty. When it gets dirty change the oil/filter again and add another treatment of Seafoam. After 3 treatments you should not hear the lifter noise any longer if it was caused by carbon or varnish buildup which the Seafoam will remove. If you still hear lifter noise then this is caused by wear or something that the Seafoam cannot remove.

Try getting some additives to clean your lifters...i think they are called lifter free..a nulon product ..change oil and filter and then try it or get new lifters installed and adjusted.Blocked lifters will make a sound like that and it's pretty common with mitshubishi.Also check if your idler bearings are ok.

Rattling noise when cold start. noise dissapear when engine warm up .2000 Ford taurus SE


You problem is most likely just lifter noise. This is common with a lot of Ford engines with self adjusting lifters. Although lifter noise is bothersome it doesn't pose a serious problem. Unless your engine starts to miss or your gas mileage drops way off lifter noise is just an annoying problem.
I would recommend that you add some Sea Foam Engine Treatment($6-$8) to your oil. This is not an oil treatment it's more of an engine cleaner. If this works you'll need to add it every 2nd or 3rd oil change.
If this doesn't take care of the problem then depending on your engine you may have adjustable rockers that would allow you to remedy the problem. If not, your options are limited to living with it or replacing the lifters and possibly other valve train parts.
