Ford Ranger diesel has noisy tappets until truck


Hi my name is Tom and I am here to help you.

I drove a diesel Chevy and had the same problem.

I reduced the noise by dropping my oil to a lower viscosity at the low end and keeping the high end the same. i.e. If O.E.M. recommends a 10W30 dropped to a 5W30. This will give you coverage at the high side and lower viscosity at the low end.

There are after market additives which are formulated to lubricate the tappets. Any parts store should be able to recommend which is best. Follow the instructions and do not add too much. They contain a "sticky" nature which could defeat the dropping of your lower viscosity.

I trust this answered your question. If I can be of further help, let me know.

A ticking sound comming from the lower end of the moter


mcdevito75 here, Not really a lifter as much as could be a rocker arm, check for proper oil level. No way to test without removeing the valve cover., If high mileage, it"s not worth it, once you change 1 rocker you"ll have to change them all approx $20.. each rocker arm part.

Changing thermostat in 1999 chrysler 300


The thermostat is located at the end of the lower radiator hose at the engine Next to the oil filter. Sometimes it is easier to change the oil at the same time cause if you remove the oil filter it makes it easier to get to one of the bolts to remove the housing where the thermostat is. Hope this helps

I got my oil changed because it had alot of slugg in the oil so it was changed and now i hear tapping in the engine what could that be?


its possible to have bearing in the lower end making a sound and the reason you weren't hearing it before was because the sludge was probably to thick and you might also have an oiling problem
