These motors need to be checked by a mechanic to make sure the tappets are noisy and not a worn camshaft

I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY MILES ARE ON THE ENGINE. Found no bulletins for noise concern
Intake tappet clearance should be .006"-.010" and
Exhaust clearance should be .010"-.014"

Do they wor for noisey tappets


Noisy lifters (tappets) are caused by wear in the valve train, this is a fact of life for engines and normal. Two choices, go to the next higher viscosity oil(which will only quiet it a little), or have the valve train rebuilt. I personally have seen noisy engines run 10-15 years with no major failures!

these vehicles do not have hydraulic tappets but shims and from the sound of it it could be a follower worn through or a noisey worn camshaft and the only way to find out is to take the top off and have a good look and measure the tappet settings ,inllet 12th and exhaust 15th

Hi Ι repair 2T engine from celica TA22 and i want the adjustment for valve clearance and distributer point gapthanks for your time


right as i remember the points adjustment is 19/22 th with the mitsubishi heavy industries distributor ,now as these old fashioned distributors do wear then make sure the points are checked with a dwell meter afterwards which should be around 55% ,as for the tappets 12 inlet and 14/15 exhaust will suffice ,but when adjusting allow for wear under the arm where it strikes the valve ,what i do is adjust the tappets by the rule of 9 then start engine up with rocker cover off and sort of feel any that are noisey and re adjust them to allow for this wear ,Now to adjust the tappets use the rule of 9 ,this is as follows -1 down adjust 8 -----2 down adjust 7----3 down adjust 6------4 down adjust 5 and so on .When its up and running and running nice then for the idle make sure the CO2 is below .2% by adjusting the air blled screw on the bottom of the cab in line with the butterfly although it will run better on idle if CO2 is slightly higher but the emmisions test says it has to be below the specified figure .

Can you set valve clearances on a 1997 clio 1.2 engine.my engine sounds as if the tappets are noisey.


The tappet clearence should be in the owners handbook but it's a bit early a tappet noise from the engine (2006) ! Check oil level and change if it's overdue a service is definately worth a look ! Good luck

Noisey tappets


Don't bother. They are hydraulic and rely on oil pressure to obtain a zero clearance when everything is OK. Your oil system may be sludgy or you may be using the incorrect viscosity oil.
