Can lifters be replaced

Oh yea, lifters can be replaced , best if you replace cam an lifters together ! Loud knocking is not usually associated with lifters , they usually make a ticking noise ! Knocking noise is most usually in the bottom of the motor , main or rod bearings . most of the time rod bearings !

I have a 93 toyoto corolla that had an oil leak so the moter would make a ticking sound then when you fill it it would stop but now makes loud clicking noise and started surguing

The clicking sound is your lifters starving for oil. Now that it is surging, you have a collapsed lifter. You will have to do a top end rebuild on the engine and replace all the lifters. But make sure you fix the oil leak so you don't have the same thing happen again.

My 2001 4x4 1500 Chevy Suburban with 249,000 miles is making a loud ticking noise intermittently, it mostly happens at stop lights, sometimes while just driving, but most especially when I start it in the...

Clicking is caused by lack of oil in the hydraulic lifters. If the car has had regular oil changes, the problem is probably the oil pump. If not, the engine may be shot with this much mileage. The part is $150 at autozone, but a shop may charge more. The labor for this job is about a day, so the total can easily be $600-900. If you have more questions, please let me know.

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.

5.3 chevy loud hammering noise

My best guess is that you might have thrown a rod. You will experience a great loss of power, and if you were to drain your oil, you would notice a decent amount of metal chunks. Generally a light tapping noise is uncommon for a engine with 80k, but depending on how well it has been taken care of (ie. oil changes, high RPM, low grade fuel) it is possibe to damage an engine with that low mileage. You would be better off taking your vehicle to a reputable mechanic that has access to rebuild parts. Good Luck.

Valve Lifters

This car has hydraulic self-adjusting lifters - there is no mechanical adjustment. Go to the local parts store and get a can of Seafoam - pour half the can in the oil, drive 30-40 miles, and change the oil and filter. It's possible that oil sludge is preventing a lifter from pumping up. Seafoam is good at clearing that stuff out.

Knocking lifter

Give it a Seafoam treatment - the stuff is available at the auto parts stores and at Walmart. Instructions are on the can - it's an easy procedure that can work wonders on an older engine.
