Question about 1999 Toyota Camry
Hi there, the noise you might be referring to which sounds similar to a typewriter may be the cam gear for the VVT found at the intake. If it is louder than when you got this it may need check up. Changes in the O rings or may need replacement if you also notice a decrease in power at certain revs. Not all sounds however may not be the case. High pitch sounds may be because of timing belts or metal to metal contact which may need lubrication. As for valve lifters, the one that you have does not have any.
