SOURCE: Hearing a tapping noise from the lifters.

Have your oil pressure checked with a reliable mechanical gauge. If pressure is good, change oil and add a pint of marvel oil: it will help clean insides of lifters. if noise persists after a couple of weeks or gets worse, you will need to change lifter(s) check cam and rocker arm for wear.
Your rockers are shaft mounted and are not adjustable.
Hope this helped you and the problem does not turn out to be a serious one!
good luck

SOURCE: ticking lifters

I've seen 2 things that cause a noise like this in those vans. The first has nothing to do with the lifters, but the exhaust. The exhaust manifold to head bolts will back out a bit and make noise. The first time I heard it, I swore up and down it was lifters and tore the whole motor apart to find out there was nothing wrong with them. When I say I tore the whole motor apart I mean like, the freakin heads have to come off. This is easy to check when it's cold. Just go around to all the bolts with a little ratchet or something and see if they need to be snugged up. There is no exhaust manifold gaskets on that motor so if they're loose, once you tighten them they're fixed. Also check the manifold to manifold crossover pipe above the transmission. Normally this is louder than a lifter tap, but you never know. Just feel around it for hot air while it's running. The second cause that I know of for this noise is the camshaft. The lobes become pitted and as the rollers on the lifters go across the damaged area, it makes noise. If this is the case you get Kit A (thats a short block). According to chrysler, the camshaft is not a srviceable part in the 3.3 and 3.8L engines. You can check for this by removing the upper and lower intake manifolds and peeking down between the heads as you have someone slowly crank the motor over by hand. You should be able to catch a glimpse of the lobes through some of the broken lookin' holes in the block (maybe). I doubt that it's actually a lifter. There's no adjustment on chrysler 3.3 and 3.8L's and in 10 years I've never seen ONE that was bad. If it were mine, I'd check for ehaust leaks and if I don't find any I'd turn the radio up. As far as I can tell there aren't any side effects of the pitted camshaft other than noise besides the 1 I saw that casued a misfire.

The lifter isn't too expensive but the labor to change it will be pretty high. Is it just one? Have you tried different oil or anything yet?

Engine ticking in 1998 dodge grand caravan


if its a ticking noise then its probably a lifter noise from age and mileage or none scheduled maintenance. on your next oil change you can try running an oil system cleaner through your engine but this is not something to be overly concerned about.

Those lifters should be hydraulic self adjusting lifters. Have some one locate the exact location of the noise and go from there.
