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.

    Commonly this noise is caused by the Enging Running lean the d4 engine requires 96 fuel as it preasureises and attimises fuel at a much higher rate therefor using 91 ron will make this engine Knock witch i think you refer to as lifter Noise like the all Known import toyota Premio tried to use the same technoligy as Mitsubishi GDI and thus why they are not using it in current production cars direct injection should be left to Diesel Engines Substituting a Lean Running engine for lower exhaust emmisions will always have cause for failure

Valve tap cause


Most engines now use hydraulic lifters and they can leak a little, this causes space between then lifter and the push rod. This results in a tapping noise that goes away when they get warm or fill back up.

How to fix.my throtleboard


It seems you haven't been taking enough care on your car up to the point the whole cylinder head is worn out leaking oil from the inlet means both the valve stamp seals,valveguides ,oil scrapper rings valves and timing belt worn out. The timing jumped making the piston hit the valves damaging the guides and seals, oil started to come into cylinder and during comp%ssion it is pushed through the valves to the inlet until it damanges the throttle body.the D4 pump is also faulty, low pressure if the car can't rev. Better do cylinder head service and buy another D4 pump before condemning the throttlebody

Good Day, I was looking at a 1998 Toyota Ardeo Vista. It has done 112,000K but was surprised to hear the engine making a different noise. The mechanic said that was normal for the ardeo d4 vista engines...


if its making any sort of metalic knocking noise then leave well alone ,could have been run out of oil or coolant hence funny noise and someone is trying to pass it on as it blow up before long and they dont want to get stuck with paying out on it

Knocking noise from valve lifters , car was low on oil replaced oil will it correct itself


These engines were overhead cam.If you did put the oil back in as you said and the noise went away,no initial problem.The noise from the lifters, if its still there, is a ongoing problem.Maybe just an adjustment of the lifters needs to be done.Hope this helps

TAPPING IN VALVES


ENGINE CLICKING NOISES
A clicking or tapping noise that gets louder when you rev the engine is probably "tappet" or upper valvetrain noise caused by one of several things: low oil pressure, excessive valve lash, or worn or damaged parts.
First, check the engine dipstick to see if the oil level is low. If low, add oil to bring it back up to the full mark. Is the engine still noisy? Check your oil pressure. A low gauge reading (or oil warning light) would indicate a serious internal engine problem that is preventing normal oil pressure from reaching the upper valvetrain components. The cause might be a worn or damaged oil pump, a clogged oil pump pickup screen or a plugged up oil filter. Using too thick a viscosity of motor oil during cold weather can also slow down the flow of oil to the upper valvetrain, causing noise and wear.
COLLAPSED LIFTER NOISE
Worn, leaky or dirty lifters can also cause valvetrain noise. If oil delivery is restricted to the lifters (plugged oil galley or low oil pressure), the lifters won't "pump up" to take up the normal slack in the valvetrain. A "collapsed" lifter will then allow excessive valve lash and noise.
VALVE LASH NOISE
If you can rule out lubrication-related problems as a cause, the next step would be to remove the valve cover(s) and check valve lash. On older import engines, mechanical lifters require periodic valve lash adjustments (typically every 30,000 miles). Too much space between the tips of the rocker arms and valve stems can make the valvetrain noisy -- and possibly cause accelerated wear of both parts.
To measure (and adjust) valve lash, you need a feeler gauge. The gauge is slid between the tip of the valve stem and rocker arm (or the cam follower or the cam itself on overhead cam engines) when the piston is at top dead center (valve fully closed). Refer to a manual for the specified lash and adjustment procedure. Also, note whether the lash spec is for a hot or cold engine (this makes a big difference!).
On engines with hydraulic lifters, oil pressure pumps up the lifters when the engine is running to maintain zero lash in the valvetrain. This results in quiet operation. So if the rocker arms are clattering, it tells you something is amiss (bad lifter or worn or damaged parts) or the rocker arms need adjusting.

Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Ticking noise from engine


You might have a bad hydraulic valve lifter (assuming this engine has them)... you could try an aftermarket product designed to unstick valve lifters.... any auto parts store carries them.
