1993 mazda mx6 2.5 when should a valve adjustment be done little noise is that common 144,000 mles .

the valve lifters should be hydraulic and not adjustable on that engine, either you have a clogged oil feed to them, in which case wynns hydraulic lifter treatment will cure it after a few days, or the shims are worn and replacement means using a micrometer or vernier gauge to measure each shim against the specified clearance and then fitting individual bucket shims to each valve to correct the wear, but try wynn's first, its cheap and works well for sticky lifters.

If the 2.5 has VVT (variable valve timing) it may be this unit thats making the noise, not the valves...

Oil pressure light stays on and engine is ticking loud. Pwr low

yes there is a oil pump in your engine you need to change the oil every 3000 miles or three months this will keep your engine clean but as far as help go all i can tell is that you need to take your car to a good shop and have them check out the inside of the engine so may have a serious problem.

93 MX6 throttle body is Popping, loud,sounds like a diesel

Sounds like the pipe/connection from the exhaust manifold to the EGR valve that is located at or near the throttle body has a leak. That would make a loud popping noise.

My 01 tahoe is making a very loud ticking noise

could be that your oil pump is clogged. your ticking it probably your valves starving for oil. Alot of times your oil will be fine but your oil pump will get clogged and cause the iol to take time to get to rhe valves

Ticking under valve cap

You have hydraulic lifters, and they need oil pressure to pump them up. Once sufficient oil pressure builds up (which should only take a couple seconds), the ticking goes away. You might help to alleviate some of the problem by getting a product called Seafoam. Pour half a bottle into the oil, drive for 30-40 miles (no more than that, as it does thin your oil out), and then change the oil and filter. Seafoam can clean crud and sludge out. Some of it may be blocking the oil channels to the lifters, and the Seafoam can clean it out and allow them to pump up more quickly.
