Is there a good addative for noisey tappets

first check that you have proper oil pressure, a clean oil and filter, if it still taps it may be due to engine wear or gummed lifters,
try a little of this

or try this to stabilize and stop clicks caused by worn engine parts
Lucas oil stabalizer, and both products are sold at nearly every auto parts store

Replace lifters

First how many miles on the vehicle and how long was the car run low on oil? Most cars today have an integrated fuel pump that will shut off if the engine is low on oil. Most likely you have either gotten some dirt into the lifters causing the noise so I would start with a fresh oil change and filter and add a good oil additive to help clean the insides of the engine. I personally like Rislone products because I have had good luck with them but any good additive that quiets lifters will have a detergent to help clean the lifter and help prevent lifter bleed-down.

My 2002 Jeep Sahara, 88,000 miles, was making extreme tapping noise for 2 weeks - now nothing. Was told needed to replace lifters! however, no noise for 1 month after inspection. Why no noise now? Am I...

If the noise is gone,the lifter is unstuck,don't worry about it.I would run 2 cans of a high detergent additive to the oil just to clean up the lifters before the next oil change and use a high quality oil on the next oil change.
Rislone makes a good product for a lifter cleaning. PUT 2 CANS IN THE OIL.

no what you do is to add a half litre of diesel to the oil and 3 good squirts of fairy liquid ,got to be fairy and no cheap one.then run vehicle around for a day or so and the noise will stop ,Then change oil and filter and from then on change oil every 5000miles and a oil filter every third oil change ,use a diesel/petrol oil the cheapest you can buy and the diesel /petrol oil will have detergent in it which will keep the inside of the engine clean and prevent clag from forming which is what is causing your hydraulic tappet stick thus making a noise .

How much would it cost to get new lifters put in a 02 durango 4.7 liter magnum?

Any estimate you get will be a best case scenario, or wild guess as total cost will depend on how much internal damage there is. Plan on $400 minimum. These motors are known for failing due to sludge. The cause for the sludge is a big debate, but dodges 2.7L v6 does the same thing. If you have noisy lifters or ticking from the engine, I suggest you try to clean it before tearing it apart. I have used a product by gunk called 5 minute oil flush. With the engine cold you dump it in, let the motor idle for 5 minutes and then change the oil and filter. I have seen brand new oil come out black and chunky after using it. Most mechanics are afraid these cleaners may hurt the motor, but I have brought many old motors back to life and put many miles on them after doing it just once. I also know that the carbon buildup it cleans is more damaging.

Try getting some additives to clean your lifters...i think they are called lifter free..a nulon product ..change oil and filter and then try it or get new lifters installed and adjusted.Blocked lifters will make a sound like that and it's pretty common with mitshubishi.Also check if your idler bearings are ok.

Ticking in the motor

Sounds like you have a lifter that is sticking. Purchase a can of Seafoam Motor Treatment at Advance Auto Parts, Walmart, and many other suppliers. I have used this product many times and it is fantastic. This is not a motor treatment such as some of the others you see advertised to improve mileage or stop oil burning. This is a legit product that many mechanics trust. To clean lifters, add 1½ oz. Sea Foam to each quart of oil. Sea Foam will slowly re-liquefy the old oil varnish residue that builds up on lifters and prevents them from functioning normally. This process can be done as part of a pre service cleaning by adding the Sea Foam to the oil at least 30 miles before the next oil change interval. OR it can be done as a preventative maintenance process without changing the oil. You can leave Sea Foam in the oil indefinitely as long as the oil is clean. The addition of a high-detergent oil like Sea Foam may cause the oil to become dirty faster than normal as buildup oil residue and contamination are cleaned. Check the oil at regular intervals and when it gets dirty, change it.

Noisy lifter in 1999 dodge dakota 2.5l 4 cyl. is cyl. head removal necessary to change ?

No just yet before you go to all that expense and trouble. The lifter may just need cleaning. Go to Advance Auto Parts and purchase a can of Seaform Motor Treatment. This is not an oil additive. This is a fantastic product that just may clean your lifters and stop the noise. Read about it here and watch the video. You put it in the crankcase as per the instructions on the can. You can also get it at other retailers and marine supply stores.

Does 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 have hydraulic lifters? I posted a question a few days ago regarding engine loud ticking which sounds like lifter noise. It doesn't have that deep sounding knock. I went to...

I would not believe any thing some parts store loser told you. Theres not a V8 built that doesnt have hydraulic lifters, unless its some fancy racin engine. It has hydraulic lifters, but unless you dont change your oil every 5k miles and/or use some cheap oil, there should be no problems. You should have a real mechanic look at it, and verify that you have good oil pressure. If it does, I would change the oil and use some MOBIL 1 and drive it, the oil will clean the lifters somewhat. If the eng has low oil pressure, that will need to be addressed.

Noisey valve lifters in 2001 blazer

I suggest Blue Devil products for noisy valve lifters. If they are too worn or one of them is broken , no product will work . The lifters and valves have to be overhauled.
