Your engine has internal timing belts that need to be replace. Had the same ploblem on mine. This cleared it up pretty quick.

2002 montero sport, i am experiencing tapping/ticking noise in the upper head department of 3.6 v6 engine. i change my oil regularly every 3000 miles. i put in seafoam in gas tank hoping it would help...

hi putting seafoam in fuel will clean the valves and pistons over time to use to do lifters you need to add to oil measure out the right amount for the oil measurements on the can.. also the tapping is it more when its cold or just the same no matter hot or cold or is it more louder when hot. when was the last time the timing was checked, are you using 5w/30 or 10w/30 oil.

My 2004 v6 3.5 litre rodeo has been regularly serviced and maintained and now has 140000 kms on the clock but it has now developed a ticking sound which i thought would be the tappets and or valves but all...

look for obvious signs that the holden dealer did take off rocker covers and check/replaced shims for tappet adjustment you should have shims booked out on receipt if any were done. Alot of them dont do it because its very time consuming and a pain in the **** to do this job. This should have been done at 100,000km service. If the tapping noise is there constantly at idle and approx 1200-1500rpm and gets louder if you stab the throttle at this engine speed its a tappet or other engine noise(big end bearing), if the noise comes in and out at a constant engine speed idle and 1200-1500rpm your valve guides are worn. both of these were common for this engine.

I have a tapping noise from my engine bay on an audi v6 tdi, i think it may be a tappet and have been told it may likely be fixed with an engine flush and service car has only covered 114000mls,the noise...

The cam followers are self adjusting,so an engine flushing agent and new oil (10/40 semi synthetic), should sort out the "tapping" noise,When the engine is hot run at 3500 revs for 30 secs to reset gaps
