Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

Ticking motor, slipping tranny?

I have an ES 16 valve, and it ticks. Maybe the lifters need adjusted? Also, it feels like my car is starting to slip when I accelerate. Isn't as strong accelerating in 2nd gear. I haven't owned the car long, so i'm still getting to know it, but I was wondering how to get rid of the ticking, and whether the tranny is going out or just needs serviced.

    Yes, all the fluids are at the right level, and look and smell clean. Someone suggested to me to use something called slip-stop or whatever and it will help the car shift better. Maybe that would work?

The ticking is a stuck lifter cause is usually from the oil not being changed. The transmission oil may never have been changed and now it may need to be overhauled. Is the fluid level correct and clean or does it smell burnt? Take it in for service and have them replace your brake fluid and inspect for any problems. Many people don't maintain their cars and trade them into dealers.

    Do not use any fix it products in your transmission, they may cause more problems that can't be fixed. Try having the tranny fluid and filter changed and see if you still have the slipping problem. If so go to a transmission shop to see if they can fix your slipping problem by adjusting the bands or it may need to be rebuilt.

Noise out of the engine. Noisy valves? Low oil level? Is the sound like tick, tick, tick, tick......that's how bad valves sound. I don't know if you have solid lifters those have to be adjusted after some mileage. Hydraulic ones are self adjusting. Only a good mechanic can tell for sure.

YOU NEED TO ISOLATE TICK TO FRONT OR REAR BANK OF ENGINE..A MECHANIC'S STETHOSCOPE CAN HELP YOU ISOLATE..THEN REMOVE FRONT OR REAR VALVE COVER AND PUSH ON EACH ROCKER ARM..IF A LASH ADJUSTER(LIFTER)IS BAD,IT WILL BE SOFT OR COMPRESS WHEN YOU PUSH ON IT..LIFTERS ARE IN ROCKER ARMS ON A 3.0L AND IN BLOCK ON 3.3 AND 3.8L ENGINES

2000 olds van 3.4l engine started ticking Top end? Started suddenly last weekend. 220 000 klicks. timing belt slipped a tooth???


sounds to me maybe a sticky lifter and not building up with oil pressure,try adding 2 quarts of clean diesel fuel to your oil and let idle for about 10-15 minutes,if the ticking stops then change the oil and filter,then it was the lifter not building up with oil pressure

solid lifters? i could be wrong but i think they are hydraulic lifters. ive had quite a few of them not pump up when re-installing the valvetrain and cause a tick. pull off the valvetrain and check to see if all the lifters/tappets are firm with no squish. that might be your problem

My guess would be a sticking valve lifter. Buy a can of Gunk Motor Flush ( NOT radiator flush), use as directed, drain the oil and replace the filter, refill with clean oil, and see is the tick has gone away. Marvel Mystery Oil would work also if you can't find the Gunk.

Most dodge motors have adjusters on the rockers for taking up slack in the valve-train. when these get worn or plugged by dirt they turn the valves from soft hydraulic to hard ticking due to a space between the lifter and the valve. If this is an overhead cam with roller lifters then these have become worn or fouled.
