Question about 2006 Ferrari 360
The car has a ticking noise coming from one side of the engine. I'm assuming it's a sticky or collapsed lifter. Is there a way to fix it using lifter free stick products? If yes, what can I try? If I run transmission fluid mixed with oil will that fix problem? Then once fixed do an oil change.
If the lifter has to be replaced. Does the engine have to be taken out of the car or can it be worked on while in the car? I need details as to how to get to the lifters.

This car has hydraulic lifters( tappets} therefore should not adjustment, you probably have a bad or weak lifter. But, in any case you have to remove the valve covers to make the adjustment. You will see the adjustable bolt on the rocker arm. rotate the engine until the valve is all the way to the top, [no tension on the valve spring] then place a feeler Gage in between the rocker arm and the valve stem, adjust the rocker arm until the feeler Gage is snug but not tight. Do this with each valve. Check the book for the correct Gage to use but I think it is a .018.

SOURCE: ticking lifters
I've seen 2 things that cause a noise like this in those vans. The first has nothing to do with the lifters, but the exhaust. The exhaust manifold to head bolts will back out a bit and make noise. The first time I heard it, I swore up and down it was lifters and tore the whole motor apart to find out there was nothing wrong with them. When I say I tore the whole motor apart I mean like, the freakin heads have to come off. This is easy to check when it's cold. Just go around to all the bolts with a little ratchet or something and see if they need to be snugged up. There is no exhaust manifold gaskets on that motor so if they're loose, once you tighten them they're fixed. Also check the manifold to manifold crossover pipe above the transmission. Normally this is louder than a lifter tap, but you never know. Just feel around it for hot air while it's running. The second cause that I know of for this noise is the camshaft. The lobes become pitted and as the rollers on the lifters go across the damaged area, it makes noise. If this is the case you get Kit A (thats a short block). According to chrysler, the camshaft is not a srviceable part in the 3.3 and 3.8L engines. You can check for this by removing the upper and lower intake manifolds and peeking down between the heads as you have someone slowly crank the motor over by hand. You should be able to catch a glimpse of the lobes through some of the broken lookin' holes in the block (maybe). I doubt that it's actually a lifter. There's no adjustment on chrysler 3.3 and 3.8L's and in 10 years I've never seen ONE that was bad. If it were mine, I'd check for ehaust leaks and if I don't find any I'd turn the radio up. As far as I can tell there aren't any side effects of the pitted camshaft other than noise besides the 1 I saw that casued a misfire.

Your lifters have become clogged over the years. Its only after the oil warms up and thins out does it allow oil to "pump up" the lifters. That's why it goes quiet after 5 min. There are several different brands of additives on the market that can fix this problem ,unless you have a more serious mechanical problem, which I doubt.Check your local auto parts store for the additive. Just add it to your oil and "wham!" problem solved. Good Luck!

Have you checked the relay's ? with so many electrical faults I would take a good look at the fuse box especially on a Ferrari as they have been known to set fire and destroy the car. Disconnect the battery and start to test the wiring from the fuse box back over. Has the car had any work done recently? has it ever been in a crash ?
please give me more info
