SOURCE: hydraulic lifters

Yes, but there is still a lot of stuff to move out of the way to get in there and pull them. I would try all the chemical remedies for sticky lash adjusters (oil flush, marvel's mystery oil, etc.) first, then check the timing belt to see if a worn timing belt has let it slip a tooth and the valve timing is off for that reason before digging into the lifters. There used to be a forum that had video and audio from a subaru legacy this model before and after swapping out a bad lifter. Google for it and see if the noise matches.

SOURCE: noisy lifters at enging start up/ Goes away after

If you have a lot of miles on the engine, it could be wear. After the oil warms up and pumps the lifter up to normal it will quieten down. It also could be just dirty lifters, beginning to stick. I would run an additive like risilone to the oil for a couple of oil changes( might even change oil 1,000 miles between changes to see if cleaning the lifters make a difference.

Likely you are talking about the harmonic balancer.
The bolt turns counter clockwise and is generally removed using an air gun. There is another way to do that too but it is a bit dangerous. Using a solid breaker bar (one without jointed end) you can brace the end against the ground with the socket installed on the crank bolt (I actually have a pipe driven into the ground outside just for doing this...I just slide the bar into the pipe and keep it form dropping by using a vise grip on the handle). Once the socket is on the bolt, crank the engine over using the starter, the engine will force the bolt to back out.
After you get the belt installed, tighten it as much as you can by hand and ask a shop to just give it a final tightening with an air gun.
If the socket slips the bar can fly up so be very careful and don't stand where it can hit you!

SOURCE: My Opel Corsa dies down during driving, it will only start again after 7 to 10 mins, l have no clue whats happening.

No idea offhand to be honest i would need my head under the bonnet to know what wrong .could be anything from the gauze filter in the fuel tank on the bottom of the fuel pump becoming chocked up and leaving the car allows it to drop away to a faulty pump overheating or the contacts ,maybe even a ignition module overheating ,Best advice is ask a local mechanic to have a look for you as normally these early opel corsas with the 4 cylinder engine are bullet proof they are even valve free if the timing belt snaps .

Sounds like you not getting enough fuel. Try replacing you fuel filter which sits under neath the rear near the tank. Just follow the line from the tank and you'll see it or it can be a faulty fuel pump You should get 3 bars pressure from it.

Opel corsa 1.4i rough idle and does not start with first swing. Replaced lifters and filters.


maybe the rough idling is from faulty injectors and low fuel pressures
run the fault codes to determine the faults

Volvo s40 1.8 noise from housing on rocker cover


The lifters are hydraulic on this model and as a result they are noisy for about the first 15 minutes after cold start. As a precaution I would just make sure to check your oil level as being really low on oil will cause the rockers not to pump up with oil as well. Oil pressure causes the rockers to expand under pressure via the oil pump. If the car has extremely high miles I would maybe have the oil pump replaced during next timing belt job.

No Start - Lanos 99 SOHC 1.395cc


Hi. I can give you a simple, but time consuming test to do to check your intermittent compression problem. New hydraulic lifters cause a lot of problems until its settled. Remove the camshafts and the hydraulic lifters. Take each hydraulic lifter and put it in a vice(becarefull not to damage them) and squeeze out all the oil in the lifters. Then put them back and replace camshaft and allign timing marks. Check compression ratio. What happens sometimes is that the oil pressure is too high(stuck oil pressure release valve or cold thick oil) and this causes the oil pressure to put so much pressure on the hydraulic lifters, that it slightly forces the valve open. That will cause your low compression as well as backfire through the intake.

Noisy start in the morning


I am assuming that you used el cheapo oil filter rather than a known brand in the service. Oil filters have a non drain back valve built into the filter to stop your problem but some cheap or wrong filters do not have this valve hence your problem.. The noise goes when the oil pressure fills up all the hydraulic lifters and oil pressure is achieved.

2003 dodge ram has light tick for a minute at cold start then goes away


The 'light tick' is most probably a valve lifter. The valve lifters in the engine are hydraulic, and are pressurized by the engine's oil pump.
When the engine gets some mileage, say 60 or 70 thousand miles or more, the engine is just not as tight as it once was. What happens is that the lifter loses its pressure when the engine is not running, because there is some wear. When you start the engine, the lifter takes a few moments to pressurize, and makers a ticking noise until it does. The 'ticking' is the sound of the valve being hit by the push rod, which is being pushed by the lifter. Once the lifter is pressurized, the 'ticking' sound stops. This is a very common thing for engines, it will eventually happen to nearly every one.
Sometimes, thin, old oil can cause this. If you have not changed the oil/filter in a while, you should do it now.

This is nothing to really worry about right now, but it is a sign of engine wear. Just be sure to run the proper oil in the engine, and do all the proper maintenance.

What can cause a knocking at the right hand side valve cover


Hi , usually a knocking / pinging from the valve cover indicates a lifter tapping. Could be worn out or just worn. Do you change your oil every 3000 with high quality oil? (I always have used valvoline standard with outstanding results) Dirty oil and filter and or incorect weight oil and or using synthetic oil in older cars can result in lifters tapping. If your oil is under 2000 miles since last change and you used a high quality oil (watch who changes your oil, some places use inferior oil because its cheaper) you can buy a pint of oil treatment formula to quiet noisy lifters to coat the lifter and quiet it down. It is a sign of engine wear, but one lifter tapping a bit wont really hurt your engine mechanically. If they all get noisy, time for a valve job. Root cause is wear due to insufficient lubrication. The lifters on newer cars are all hydraulic and they self adjust. No manual adjustment is possible. Bottom line: keep your oil changed regularly using a high quality non-synthetic oil for your 1999 vehicle.

Lifter noise on a 4.8 liter chevy motor. do i need to pull the heads to replace lifters?


You usually don't need to pull the heads. I'm not exactly familiar with that engine but 50% of the time you can get a magnet and pull them out through the valve covers. But to make sure it's the lifters. Let it run until it's warm and remove the valve covers. You at that point should push with your finger on the push rod side of the tappet. If one of them ticks (you will be amazed you just did it with your finger) thats the bad one. However the whole cause of the problem with hydraulic lifter is oil pressure. The 0-ring seal between the oil pump screen and the oil pump may be cut, causing aeration of the oil. Thus lowering oil pressure causing the tick. It is normal for some LIGHT ticking to occur in the 4.8L and some noticeably louder ticking on startup. Good luck!

New cam went flat in 30 min. 2nd cam wiped out also cams were crane hydraulic/ break in was followed.


Valve spring seat pressure too high, or valve lash too tight. In some cases a big-lift cam, with a stock set of springs causes coil-bind or "spring-stacking" and that will wipe a cam flat in about 5 minutes. Used lifters on a new cam won't seat properly, causing an uneven wear pattern. Doesnt take much to start a problem on a flat tappet cam, but hydraulics are usually more forgiving that solid lifters.
