A noisey lifter is normal on start up after sitting for more than a few days. kia, another korean car company has whats called a tsb for having the wrong type of oil filter causing air to be introduced into the lifters making them be noysy.[i dont spell well but i know my stuff] the procedure to make noise go away was to run engine in nuetral at 2000 rmp for several minutes to bleed out air then replace with oem or QUALITY replcement. the clicking does no harm if taken care of promptly.your back yard man has not the skills or knowledge to return your car to you are gonna have to bite the bullet and get it back and take it to a responsible shop for repairs.shops that say they cant undo what he did are going to be just as bad as him. look for a can do shop or just buy a remanufactured engine and have it inastalled. [or do it yourself, those are pretty easy] just get a cheap manuel from the parts store [around 20 dollars u.s.] bottom line letting this dude milk you for more money will do you no good.

2000 Daewoo nubira's oil light comes on, not when cold, but after it warms up, and only while idyling, goes off after you gas. Car rattles a bit at idyl. Could it be a loose sensor? Jill

sensors do not cause a rattle
from your description there is something more serious that a sensor
it could be hydraulic lifters that are worn out as the car is 16 years old which would allow for excessive loss of oil pressure at idle

Wha t is the valve setting for a 2000 deawoo 1.6

Hi the A16DM Lanos engine has hydraulic valve lifters , the clearances are thus automatically adjusted , make sure the lifters are bled and primed before installation , inspect the camshaft for wear as wear in this area would result in tappet noise .

Hope this helps a bit

What can cause a knocking at the right hand side valve cover

Hi , usually a knocking / pinging from the valve cover indicates a lifter tapping. Could be worn out or just worn. Do you change your oil every 3000 with high quality oil? (I always have used valvoline standard with outstanding results) Dirty oil and filter and or incorect weight oil and or using synthetic oil in older cars can result in lifters tapping. If your oil is under 2000 miles since last change and you used a high quality oil (watch who changes your oil, some places use inferior oil because its cheaper) you can buy a pint of oil treatment formula to quiet noisy lifters to coat the lifter and quiet it down. It is a sign of engine wear, but one lifter tapping a bit wont really hurt your engine mechanically. If they all get noisy, time for a valve job. Root cause is wear due to insufficient lubrication. The lifters on newer cars are all hydraulic and they self adjust. No manual adjustment is possible. Bottom line: keep your oil changed regularly using a high quality non-synthetic oil for your 1999 vehicle.

Lifters tap loud in mornings for a couple mins and then good alday

Typical lifter,they are worn,Make sure the oil level is correct. If it is and this noise happens its typical for worn lifter to loose the oil and drain out, After it sits for more than 5 hours the lifter get empty and as you start it up the oil pump/crankshaft builds pressure and fills the lifter right up,this allow the lifter to maintain compression. The valve portion of the engine work 2 to 4 times harder and faster than the bottom portion yes you can still drive it all day,but you can expect this to occur everytime it sit for more than 5 hours.

Is my 2000 Daewoo Nubira oil pump going out?

That would be my first stop in this situation assuming you also changed the oil filter when you changed the oil.

When ever i first start my blazer up i can hear tapping on my motor then it fades away do you know what it can be?

Sounds like the lifters are tapping until the oil pump get oil up to them. Could be oil leaking out the top of the motor or your lifters may need adjusted.

My engine has a ticking at start up and goes away after a few minutes? I put some motor honey in it and it is better. what could this be?

It sounds as if the hydrallic lifters are bleeding off pressure after it sits. Which means the lifters somewhat collapse until they start getting oil pressure from the oil pump after you start it. You might try an oil change and an A/C oil filter. If it is the lifters, they would need to be replaced.

Afer being driven 5-7 miljes my 99 tauras loses

I would have to say your engine is probably shot. The bearings are probably gone. It is possible, i suppose, that your oil pump is faulty. As soon as the oil warms up, and becomes thin, the rods and lifters start to rattle. The same goes for the oil pump, as oil becomes hot, and thin, it may not be pumping properly. I would try a used oil pump, and see if there is any difference before i wrote the engine off.

2000 chevy malibu there is a tapping sound when i

Most likely its just your lifters clapping as they make contact, until the oil starts flowing good through them, then it goes away. My car has been doing that for a long time. Never had any problems. The rods are pushed up by the camshaft, the rods push down rocker arms which then open the valves. The rods are round at the tips and sit in lifters that pump oil through them up to the top of the engine and then out onto the valve springs. If your car has a lot of miles you may consider putting a thicker oil, something like 10w40.

Ticking noise from engine

You might have a bad hydraulic valve lifter (assuming this engine has them)... you could try an aftermarket product designed to unstick valve lifters.... any auto parts store carries them.
