Question about 1997 BMW 328
Im experiencing loud ratling noises from my car's engine(BMW 328i M52 Single Vanos)My suspicion is that my hydrolic valve lifters are finished or may they just be dirty. Should I replace all or can I replace just the ones that are finished or can I just clean them?
The lifters can be cleaned by getting the engine nice and hot and then adding an engine flush to the oil and leaving the engine running at a high tickover for about 15 to 20 minutes, and then giving the car an oil and filter change.
Are you sure its the tappets and not the timing chain?
