The procedure is to check the gaps on all the valves then see how much they are out side the recommended gap
remove the camshafts and take the followers off the valve be careful to not lose the adjustment spacer from inside the follower you then measure the spacer to either go thicker or thinner to get the required gap do that with all followers that need adjustment refit camshafts and reset timing then remeasure the valve gaps

Testimonial: "Thank you very much for your helpful information. when i asked local dealership's, was informed that they don't provide this service procedure due to the involved service, and unpredictability of successful results.and advised to seek other service providers. essentially told to drive it until the noise gets worse and then either replace the engine or perform a cylinder head replacement. leaving me with extreme doubt on performing this service procedure for my 2004 3.5L with 110k miles. otherwise mechanically runs perfectly. and not willing to let just anyone tear my motor apart."

Hello Francois, the tapping sound you hear might be coming from a bad valve lifter, a bad camshaft lobe, a bent push rod, a broken valve spring, a broken rocker arm or the valves may need to be adjusted.

1998 nissan pathfinder oil pressure problems


Could be the oil pump.

Could be a major blockage in the lubrication system possibly due to major sludge build up.

Could be a faulty oil pressure relief valve.

1. How many miles are clocked up on the car?
2. How often does the engine oil and oil filter get changed in the car? Every 6000 miles for example.

2005 nissan pathfinder gearbox valve body


Don't ever purchase a Nissan newer than a 2004. They are complete junk. I have an 05 Pathfinder that had all the records. I purchased this around 72,000. My wife & I have driven it for about 15k miles and have had that vehicle in the shop multiple times. Right off the bat, the vehicle had a leak that cost me 1200. While on a road trip, an easy fix but the thermostat went bad, $200. Among other things, Currently it is sitting down at my local trasmission shop and needs the valve body replaced- $1600. research Nissan before they take advantage of you by selling an overpriced vehicle that they consider top of the line but start having trouble around 100k, right when the extended warrenty is up.

My 04 nissan maxima has this loud ticking noise when i start it as i drive it it stops


i have the same problem on a customers car
its only when it sits for like 30 mins
and its coming from the rear head i can't hear it right by the chain cover so it might be
1. too thin of oil
2.oil starvation
3. variable valve timing solenoid sticking and when oil pressure rises it works normal.
4. or chain slap but then id figure the tensioner is bad....
but it goes away so its not a potential.. cuz if it was the noise would be there regardless.
i haven't fixed the car yet im gonna look at it tonite.

Oil consumption, rattle, engine noise


Check under the hood and inspect the valve cover gasket. If it's bad it would explain why you don't see any leaks on the ground because it's probably burning off on the manifold. This ticking you're hearing is a lack of lubrication to the rocker arms. Apart from the valve cover gasket, you should get under the car and inspect the oil pan and oil filter for seepage. Best of luck on your problem.

Engine noise


Sounds like a problem with the power valve actuator in the intake manifold collector. I would check with a Nissan dealer first and inquire of any recalls or service bulletins. Might save ya time & money.

Rattle when accelerating


had the same issue, had someone look and it seems the noise was caused by heat shield being loose covering exhaust system. Have that checked out.
