Sounds like it could be time for an oil change. Toyotas have small oil galleries going to the top of the motor and not changing your oil at the recommended mileage can cause sludge to build up causing the top of the motor to starve for oil which can cause ticking. swiftautorepairs.com

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 2001 mitsubishi lancer auto, and the last 2 days it has been blowing grewish smoke out of the exhaust and just tonight as I was driving black smoke started pouring out and filling the roads fall...


I presume you are adding oil (topping up). If you are then you have a series problem with piston ring wear inside engine. Oil is getting past the wiper rings and getting into the combustion chamber and burning with the fuel. Need to rebuild or replace engine.

Black smoke from exhaust


this guy is wrong. Black smoke means to rich[to much fuel]. Your motor is not shot. Something is wrong with the engine management[sensor]. White or blue smoke is a fatal problem.

Tick In motor every few seconds after intake gasket changed


Sounds like when they did the intake,They drained the fluids but forgot to fill them back up and since the oil was near empty,I would say it's a lifter.But they can be reprimed or replaced a whole lot easier than some other possible causes.

Loud ticking sound all of the time


Are you sure its not an exhaust leak ..? They can sometimes sound like a ticking noise and the noise will change with temperatures of engine.. ? also if you can borrow a stethicope from someone which is used in automotive repair alot (different than what your doctor uses) this will help you pinpoint the problem .. It sounds to me with out hearing it you have a loose rocker arm possably .. If this is the case this is a easy fix and very inexpensive. just figure which side its coming from take the valve cover off and tighten it till it stops ticking and then give it 1/4 turn. Holler if you need more Jerry

Camshaft and bearings


There is a very good chance that it is a noisy lifter. They can look and work fine but make noise. Alot of GM cars and trucks end up doing this and there is not anything mechanicaly wrong with them. I would NOT replace the motor because of this. I have never heard of a ticking sound being caused by something in the bottom end of the motor. If it was something in that area you would probably have wrecked the motor by now, or your oil pan would be full of metal shavings.
