Check your oil level. Sometimes dry pushrods will squeek before they break. The noise comes from where the rocker arm meets the pushrod. Or if you are lucky, the PCV valve is not tight into the valvecover. The PCV valve can also make this sound on its own.

Check your oil filler cap for tightness. When checking your dipstick, start the car without the dipstick in place and see if the noise disappears.

Are you absolutely certain the noise is lifter tap and not an exhaust leak? These are pretty well known for breaking exhaust manifold studs, or even cracking exhaust manifolds. The noise will be present on a cold engine but might go away as the engine heats up and the manifold expands. Maybe that's why it seems to go away after adding additives or changing the oil. It gets just enough heat in the engine to fool you in to thinking the issue was resolved by adding the oil/additive. Are you always adding to a cold engine?

Motor started tapping loudly as if there was no oil, oil level was fine, changed oil sound quieted after 20 minutes, sound came back a couple of days later, went away the last couple of days on short...


hi this could be due to your hydraulic tappets, these will start to rattle if the oil has been low at some stage and the oil was to thin this normally sounds worse in the mornings on first start and gets quieter as the day goes on or disappears altogether, what you could do, is use an engine flush, put it in the engine and run it for a period of time, then empty the oil and refill with a thicker grade oil and see how that goes..hope this helps

Tapping sound in The engine Head


Sounds like lifter noise. The best solution for lifter noise is, change the oil use a good quality oil , i would recommend a synthetic oil or at least a couple of quarts. Then get a bottle of MARVEL MYSTERY OIL this stuff works good add that to you oil when you change it and that should clear up any lifter noise. Another thing that might help use a higher grade gas a couple of times.
