Don't add transmission fluid to your engine. You can try doing a motor oil flush. But most likely you need a valve lash. Every 80,000 you should have an adjust of the valves/lifters.

Transmission fluid will clean out the engine but then I suggest using 3 quarts of 5w/30 and 1 quart of 20w/50 at your next oil change.

How to stop lifters from tapping for 1997 lincoln towncar?


Lifter noise is typical of an oil pressure issue, or when oil channels are clogged from infrequent oil changes.
You can start by changing the oil and REPLACING THE FILTER. Marvel Mystery Oil or other oil treatments will help clean the oil system and quiet the lifters. If an oil change and crankcase oil additive helps quiet the noise, change your oil every 500 miles for at least 2000 miles, and the lifter noise is likely to stop.
Are you getting a CHECK ENGINE light, or an OIL PRESSURE warning? Have ODB codes checked, and be prepared to replace the oil pump or oil pickup tube, especially if the car has over 150,000 miles. Once you have correct the issue, change oil more frequently.

My 94 Suburu Loyale Started doing a steady ticking noise, What could it be?


Hi, it is likely you have a bad valve lash adjuster. Pretty common in these cars, as I helped another customer with the same problem. The labor to fix this was a lot, because the engine had to be disassembled. Repair procedures are available if you are inclined to do the work yourself.
Thanks for using FixYa.

2004 Doge Ram 2500 5.7 Hemi 190K mile had oil pressure gauge drop to ZERO and check gauges light come on and engine shut down.. Check oil 1 guart low, add oil. let cool. crank up, good gauges drove home 45...


If the valve lifters are quiet you most likely have oil pressure even with gauge showing "0".Sounds like the oil pressure switch going bad.I would try that first.

I have a 1998 Cavalier (147,000 miles) that has made a ticking noise when I start it. However, revving the engine will quiet the noise before driving. Recently, it began making a extremely loud grinding...


unfortunately at 140,000 miles much like humans parts start to wear... now you can try to flush the oil system...I DON"T RECOMMEND IT.... I have seen engines tear apart from engine oil flushes.... drain refill the oil/filter with new oil and an additive may help, or pin down the noise to what lifter is going south and have it replaced... may end up being a very expensive repair depending on what they find when they open the engine up with high mileage...or just continue driving it untill it completely wipes out... I do belive its a hydraulic lifter that is not pumping up causing the tick and if so they usually last a long long time noisey.

Want to know if you recommend a transmission flush for my car? It has over 140,000 miles. What sevices do you recommend?


Yes a tranny flush would be great. I would recommend Either Going out and purchasing a new tranny filter, gasket and Transmission fluid from your local Auto parts store and doing it yourself, CHEAPEST. Or going to your local Valvoline to have it flushed. Cost is around $100

92' grand marquis, 140,000 miles, 4.6 ltr., 2 overhd cam. smokes after idol but not when first started or after sitting for any length of time.???


piston rings are worn. do an oil change and substitute 1 qt of oil with 1 qt of lucas oil treatment. when the engine heats up the oil thins and gets past the rings and combusts along with the fuel. the fix i recommended will only reduce the sympyoms and confirm the rings are worn. you'll need a ring job to fix.

Noisy lifters


Marvel Mytery Oil has always been known to cure sticky lifters. Another old trick is to add a qt. of trans fluid inplace of motor oil next time you top it off. Trans fluid is very high detergent.

The problem with the 3.2 ticking noise is the worn rocker rod on the intake side. These rods support the rockers and the slave rockers for the exhaust. The slave rockers wear a groove in the rocker shafts that create extra clearance. The extra clearance is too much for the lifters to cover and then you get the tapping noise. The only cure is to replace the intake rocker shafts. When you get into the valve train, it is obvious what the problem is.

Engine makes a rapping noise at idle and under throttle.


The rapping noise makes me think that it might be a broken belt or even the lifters. It could be even your fan. Check the blades to se if they are bent or broken.
