Better check oil pressure 1st to make sure hydraulic lifters have oil pressure to them. Or 1 or a few could be stuck.

Why is my subaru making a ticking noise and how do I fix it?

It needs a valve adjustment. I am guessing about $150.

A pain on the Subaru because you have two banks of cylinders and each has a set of valves. Also, access is kind of difficult as they push to each fender.

Valves in 2003 ford focus SE 2.3L are do I fix them?

I doubt if the valves are loose or need adjustment as the engine should have hudraulic tappets which adjust automatically when the engine is running. I suggest that your friend take off the rocker cover and see if anything is out of place. As the engine is 10 years old it is possible that the tappets may be badly worn and not working properly hence the noise

Toyota paseo engine ticking

Lifter may be worn or cam lobe is worn and is probably due a timing belt replacement as well.Sounds like just a high mileage problem lots of people complain of valve train noise from these engines its not uncommon. I would use a high mileage engine oil to help with the noise but i am afraid the noise is only going to get worse over time you may look into salvage engine with a warranty or having the engine rebuilt it sounds like it is already burning oil. The valve lash can be adjusted on this engine but if your not a mechanic i do not recommend this, it is very sensitive procedure and can damage the engine permanently. Take it to a shop have them check your valve lash and adjust it for the noise issue to save yourself some time and money on a very costly repair with improperly adjusted valve lash. Remember to rate my solution Thanks in advance.

I have a montero 2002 and its milage is 76000 mile.i used to put for it 10/40 oil.but today i changed to 5/30 as i was adviced and as the manual said.but now it is producing ticking noise from the engine

The ticking noise you are hearing is coming from the valves its not a big problem and the thicker oil may make the noise go away. Try using 10W30 oil if the noise still doesn't go away your valves may need to be adjusted which is recommended to be done at 60,000 miles anyway. Have a good day.

I have a 99 dodge intrepid and when the engine gets warm it starts to have a deep ticking noise

This could be valve tappets tapping inside of the engine indicating hydraulic lifters , if so equipped, not adjusting well to the heat.

Are the valves adjustable on my 99 Cherokee 4.0? If so, how can I adjust them?

If your valves were fine in the past and they suddenly began to make noise then its a lifter or a cam problem. hydraulic lifters are not adjustable. 99 Cherokee 4.0 didn't have solid lifters.

1987 xj6 ticking noise from right side of engine

My guess would be a sticking valve lifter. Buy a can of Gunk Motor Flush ( NOT radiator flush), use as directed, drain the oil and replace the filter, refill with clean oil, and see is the tick has gone away. Marvel Mystery Oil would work also if you can't find the Gunk.
