Car runs great except it has a rattle in the mid range ?


this may be detonation from incorrect air/fuel /timing combination. IT is generally lean mixture and mostly can be heard on acceleration. Run fault codes to find faulty sensor that is affecting the correct air fuel mixture.

2003 hyundai accent 1.5L. tapping like valves need adjusted but engine has hydraulic lifters. Do the lifters need replacement?


Probably a combination of parts. Lifters and or rocker arms. Could be dirty lifters also. If your ready to change oil, what I do is get the engine to operating temperature. Pour a half quart of transmission fluid in and let it run 15 to 20 minutes. It's high detergent and helps clean out the lifters. If the lifters are tapping from dirt, this will stop the tapping or at least quiet it down some.

My 1999 Ford Taurus has the check engine light and oil light on. The lifters are rattling. I removed the oil pump and put a drill on the shaft and it pumps oil. Do you know what else it could be?


Just because the oil pump is turning doesn't mean it pumping enough oil. I think the first thing you should do is get a mechanical oil pressure guage hooked into the system and read the oil pressure you actually have. This will determine what to do next.

If you have a high mileage engine then perhaps a thicker oil may fix the noisy lifters. Go to 10W40 or maybe even 20W50. This should stop the lifters from rattling and boost your oil pressure if it's low. A compression test would help to confirm the wear from high mileage.

It could also be that the oil passages are partially clogged and while you have enough oil pressure, it's not getting where it needs to be in sufficient volume. If this is the case, I would try using an oil additive to help clean it up. Just be sure to increase the frequency of your oil changes to keep the crud out of the oil system.

It's also possible that your engine has enough wear and tear from mileage that it will need to be overhauled or replaced. Generally a good used engine is cheaper than a rebuild. Be sure to check out the warranty from the scrap yard first. Hope this helps.

Oil pressure drop to 20 lbs lifter start to rattle


20lbs really is not enough to cause the lifters to make noise,the gauge maybe wrong The oil pump screen maybe stopped up,and the rod and main bearings maybe worn.If this was helpful,please rate,thank you.

Lifter problem in 2001 Hyundai accent GL


The noise you hear could very well be a lifter. But that is not what is causing your engine light to come on. The engine light problem can be diagnosed by having the codes read. You can have this done for free at most national parts chains such as Advance or Auto Zone. Good luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

1998 volkswagon passat engine lifter rattle


Cause is lack of oil not getting to lifters. Try using a good cleaner to flush the engine and change to a lighter oil for a couple oil changes.

Lifters on a 2000 hyundai Accent


3 valves per cylinder 4 cylinder engine, 3X4 is 12, so yes 12 is correct, no u don't have to change all of them, just the defective ones, the reason they want to do this is one of 2 things, there is a problem with the design of the original lifters and they want to update them, 2nd reason is they have been unable to isolated which lifter(s) are causing the tapping noise.
