Cause is lack of oil not getting to lifters. Try using a good cleaner to flush the engine and change to a lighter oil for a couple oil changes.

The engine valves are rattling like a desiel, on my 1998 ford explorer 5.0. How can i solve this?

This engine has hydraulic lifters that depend on clean oil with good oil pressure. Check the oil dipstick for proper level. Try an oil additive that is supposed to help sticky lifters. If no help, you may need to replace the entire lifter set which requires removing the intake manifold and removing the rocker arm assemblies to get to the lifters. If the engine has high miles, you may need other repairs as well. Good luck!

Where is the thermostat on a 1998 volkswagon

I can't tell you exactly, but a rule of thumb is follow the top hose off the radiator, find where an aluminum housing bolts to the motor. Its right behind that.

Where to add transmission fluid

The filler tube is a little shorter than what we're used to. It may have a blue handle grip. It is located at the bell housing, back about 6-8 inches towards the driver's side fenderwell. Please make certain that the vehicle is on a level surface, this is more important with this transverse engine set-up than the good ole days of straight forward facing engines. Good Luck, and Thank You, Dana
