SOURCE: 1995 ford contour lifter noise

If it had any head work done such as valve grinding. there could be a valve a tad shorter and may
result in a noise until the engine warms up. That is what i hear the problem is with mine. There
was no noise before i had the head work done.

SOURCE: Ticking noise. Oil change was

Change oil-right now. Use Havoline or Valvoline 10w30. Use only a wix oil filter. Nothing else. Get a can of "Seafoam" at your parts store. Follow directions(EXACTLY!) when putting in oil. At 500 miles, change oil again. Use same high quality oil and parts. Do not use "Seafoam" this time(It cleaned your engine of carbon and junk on the 1st o/c). Then buy a bottle of "Lubeguard" engine treatment. This will fix you right up. Do not use cheap oil or filters on these Fords. It will cause problems. Good Luck.

SOURCE: Oil Leak Valve Cover

If it is leaking around the valve cover then that is the problem. Just remove the bolts from the valve cover in a cross pattern (ex. back right - front left and go back and foward and work till you make it to the middle. Go purcahse a valve gasket for both right and left and replace them. Tighten in the same cross pattern and be careful no to pinch the gasket.

SOURCE: upper engine knock

I had the same problem with my 1999 Cobra Convertible, it sounded like valve problem, but ended up being, a wrist pin noise! Replaced the enging and trans, found a new Engine thru Trans, with everything on it for $4300, sold the old one (with the noise) on e-bay, for $4300 plus shipping.
The drivetrain now has about 10k miles on it, no problems! Have someone check for wrist pin noise!
This is a Roush Cobra Convertible, I will sell for $12,500, with a new top! Pictures avalible!

Grinding nose from timing cover and a tick from valve cover could that tick be chain slap or is the 2.4 a no tolarince motor


The Tick is more likely worn lifters and cam. The grinding noise is most likely the timing chain guide is worn out or broken. Possibly a bad timing chain Tensioner. That IS an interference engine.

I have a loud ticking under my valve cover. 97 ford escort. I think its a loose valve but is it some thing i can fix. I know a little about cars. but not an expert


not a valve, but a lifter. I will paste procedure below. You judge if you can do it or not. Recommend you replace them all while you're in there. If you let this go, the lifter will wear out the camshaft. Lifters are $22 each, and you have 8 of them. You will also need a new valve cover gasket.
Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

  3. Unfasten the three valve cover retaining bolts.

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

Ticking noise from engine


You might have a bad hydraulic valve lifter (assuming this engine has them)... you could try an aftermarket product designed to unstick valve lifters.... any auto parts store carries them.
