I have a 2007 corvette with 5.7 engine 27,000 miles which sounds like just one lifter is making a clicking sound after it gets hot. Is there an additive which will stop the noise?

I would just pull the intake and change the lifters

You shouldn't have thoses issues,it is only
4 years old

Keep in mind I had a 1965 Vette brand new
and had it apart all the time,so that is why 46
years later I'am still at it

No additive will be a fix long term

2007 Acura tl 3.2 110000 miles engine makes a clicking noise when idling& driving I'll done the oil change and transmission flush but still haerd the clicking


At 110000 miles it could be:
1. the serpentine belt or one of the idler pulleys
2. the water pump
3. the timing belt or one of its idler pulleys
4. to a lesser extent, the power steering pump
5. a valve lifter
Here is a video showing what is on the front of the engine
You may want to get a mechanics stethoscope and carefully start trying to pinpoint the noise [keep fingers far away from belts and pulleys, I know 3 people that lost finger tips this way].

Mitsubishi l200 2.5 did 08 very noisy engine, sounds very tappety is this normal ?


It may be worn out valve lifters that are inside the engine. If you have more than 6,000 miles on the oil, valve lifters could run noisier. Changing to a high mileage type of motor oil may quite down the valve lifters noise somewhat. Synthetic oil used during the summer months could make it noisier too. If you can hear the noise while driving the car, it is not normal. Upon acceleration, if it gets noisier, you will be needing a valve job in the not to distant future.

Ticking noise in motor at first start up


what engine the V6
did you read the TSBs on chain noise of lifter noise.
how many miles on engine? 100k, 500K?
not changing oil frequently dooms most HLA lifters. they gum up and click (collapse)
same with chain
same with the tensioner,
a good tech, can find which part ticks with a $5 stethoscope.

A ticking sound on a 06 ford f150 super crew 5.4L


Ticking sound could be coming from a Coil-on-Plug, or a pcv valve, or (hope it's not) a valve lifter which could be sticking. Sticking lifter noise often disappears when rpm's change, or the noise comes & goes. try changing the motor oil & filter right after adding an Engine-Flush Treatment to the motor oil, running the engine for 10 minutes at idle with treatment added to the oil, then draining the oil & changing filter while oil is still very hot. That last part is very important, so be careful not to burn your hands - be careful. -- The sticking lifter is a likely cause if motor oil has not been changed at frequent intervals in the past (every 3-4K miles) -- dirty oil causes sticking lifters.

ACURA TL 2007 HEAVY NOISE IN THE ENGINE FOR 4 5


There are two mechanical noises you will hear from an engine, lifter noise, wrist pin slap, and rod bearing noise. The only one that will go away, if at all, with engine warm-up, is lifter noise. All assuming of course, the noise is coming from the engine, and not any of the externally mounted accessories.
Have the oil changed, and continue to change every 2000-3000 miles with a good quality oil, maybe the lifter will clear itself. If it does, maintain the oil changes for the next few changes to assure it is cleaning out.
You might also try adding 1-2 pints Berrymen's Chemtool to the oil 200-300 miles before you plan to change the oil.

Light tapping driver side valve cover in rear area 1973 chevy small block corvette engine. when engine rives up the tapping gets a little louder, the tapping is light, not a deep knocking sound.


The valves are out of adjustment or possibly a lifter is collapsed. A service manual or many sites online can provide you with information and a few different methods of adjusting the valves.
