Not necessarily but eventually failing lifters can collapse and prevent the respective valves from opening properly. When this happens that particular cylinder will stop firing. Collapsed lifters can also eventually cause damage to the camshaft.

How to fix the ticking/knocking noise in 97 v6 magna?


the ticking noise usually points to a lifter or lifters sticking, they bleed down when sitting for a while.
some times an oil flush might do the trick , or change the lifters?

Loud engine knock


I love these cars and have owned a 92 model from 98-09. These cars are infamous for lifter ticking noise. (look up lifter tick on youtube for sound comparison). Although this is not a problem, it is a big nuisance can be fixed by changing the lifters from a 97-99 model. These cars with high mileage also seem to be prone to engine rod knock. 3000gt's timing belts start slipping a tooth or so and the rods start to bang since the timing is off. These engines are interference motors, therefore if the timing is off and you drive around with messed up timing, your internals are all interrupted.(must be rebuilt)
If it is LOUD, I would say it is a rod knock. The best thing to do is add a can of thick oil(forget the name) and don't beat on it. This will reduce the noise alot. If you want to FIX the problem, you will need to rebuild.

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!

97/Mitsubishi Nimbus with engine ticking noise


If the noise is from the top off the engine it is most likely a failed or failing lifter.

Are lifters a common problem on chevy malibu 3100


That depends on when was the last time the car was serviced and how many miles its done since the last service.

If its a high milage car then having the valves set should clear up the misfire and the lifter tick.

Rapping/ticking sound in my 2001 Chevy tracker engine.


does it go tick tick tick tick and when it warms up it stops or goes quiet?
its your lifters not getting enough oil
when u change your oil it will stop till that oil gets worn out
you will have to replace the lifters or it can also be a slack oil pump not pumping oil around the engine like it should
