If it is in fact a lifter noise, there is no adjustment, just replacement of the faulty lifter. I would try some oil additive first and see if this helps. Could also be an exhaust leak at the manifold which may sound like a lifter tap.

Slight tapping noise from engine when accelerating when engine is warm.Started about 3 days ago but hasnt got any worse.Doesnt do it when cold.


tap usually associated with lifters when vehicle warms up oil thins out and a bad or worn lifter will make a tapping noise --other oil level low --oil needs changing --low level will starve rockers/push rods/and lifters which will also cause tap ---damaged /dirty{sludge oil can cause same problems

Tapping noise 2004nissan armada all the time truck runs strong doest smoke just sound like valves tapping wanted to know if need new motor or if there is another way


If you have hydraulic valve lifters, then one or more are leaking down which increases valve clearance. Put a can of lifter cleaner in the oil and drive it for a while. If you have solid lifters, just adjust the valve clearances.

How do i fix my 2001 740i bmw it makes a ticking sound win idleing


could possibly be a lifter tapping (Ticking) ,depending on how many miles the vehicle has on it might be time for lifters to be adjusted,most foreign overhead cam engines must have lifters adjuster periodically ,if you turn on the air its puts more of a load on the engine causing a louder sound (also check oil level an engine low on oil will start to tick too.. the more wear the engine gets the looser the lifters can get over time ,look in your service manual if you have one and see what the intervals are on lifter adjustment this can give you an idea.
possible only if
the ticking sound is coming from the top of the engine usually comes from under the vavle covers where the lifters are located,

Audi a4 1998 tapping noise only when idles under valve cover


Sounds like a bad valve lifter or a valve out of adjustment. It's probably a bad hydraulic valve lifter. In idle, when the oil pressure is lowest, it is not filling with oil. When the motor revs up, oil pressure rises and fills the faulty lifter.
If you do have mechanical lifters, the valve is probably out of adjustment. If you do car work, pull the valve cover and see if it's adjustable. Of course, you'll need the specs from VW/Audi.
Otherwise, it's probably a shop job.
Sorry.

Having a "clicking" sound coming from engine, or dull "thumping"


could be anything from belt noise to lifter tick to rod knock..lifter tick is under the valve covers..rod knock sounds like hitting the block with a hammer..if its rod knock see what your oil pressure is.. should be around 30 to 45 psi cold..warm will be as low as 15..depending on oil type..most lifters can be adjusted by removing the cover and doing adjusting depending on the vehicle..good luck

I have a 1990 F250 with the 460BB motor. "Only


SOMETIMES IT IS CAUSED BY THE OIL USED! THE WAY YOU DESCRIBE IT SOUNDS NATURAL, BUT YOU MIGHT CHECK THE TAPPET ADJUSTMENT! ONE OR TWO MIGHT BE A FRACTION LOOSE! THIS IS EASY TO DO, BUT REQUIRES YOU TO REMOVE THE VALVE COVERS AND WIGGLE THE TAPPETS BY HAND! TOO MUCH FREE PLAY CAN CAUSE THEM TO MAKE NOISE! YOU CAN ADJUST THEM UP A LITTLE, BUT DON'T OVER TIGHTEN THEM, OR YOU CAN DAMAGE YOUR LIFTERS! CHECK YOUR LAST OIL CHANGE, AND IF NEEDED, YOU MIGHT CHANGE TO A HIGH MILEAGE SYNTHETIC OIL LIKE MOBILE ONE, IN A 10W-30! 10W-40 IS TOO THIN FOR THAT TYPE OF ENGINE!

When ever i first start my blazer up i can hear tapping on my motor then it fades away do you know what it can be?


Sounds like the lifters are tapping until the oil pump get oil up to them. Could be oil leaking out the top of the motor or your lifters may need adjusted.
