You will need to remove the valve cover on that side to see if one of the rocker arms is hanging or extremely loose. Also your guess at a bad lifter would also be a good assumption. You will need to remove all of the lifters and look for scoring on the bottom where they ride on the camshaft.

I have a 2003 gmc Sierra half ton 4.8 liter that has a knock that sounds like lifters


There is,If you do the lifter you could be after something else,The noise sounds like a collapsed lifter,A collapse lifter can cause a misfire,The 2003 GMC sierra or I should say the 4.8 engines suffer from a cut O-ring between the oil pump screen and the oil pump causing oil areation,resulting in lifter noise,The noise will be present a cold start and then diminish at warm up.12_3_2012_8_08_44_am.gif

Why doesnt my 2006 dodge ram show codes for faulty lifter or or oil pressure. My truck makes a loud ticking sound coming from passenger side. sounds as if the lifters are knocking. took it in to the shop...


Most mechanical problems, such as noisy lifters or bearings, can't be detected by the engine controller and thus there won't be any codes set UNLESS the problem is causing a misfire or emission related concern. The ticking noise may well be a lifter even though none of them appear to be collapsed as the spring inside them will keep the lifter expanded but isnt' strong enough to keep them from being noisy when the lifter can no longer keep oil under pressure trapped inside. You may have to have someone do some further testing and inspecting to figure out exactly where the noise is coming from. Good luck, hope this helps!

Losing power,tapping noise in valve cover. could it be the rocker arm and the cam?


could be bad lifters or loose rocker arms, bad oil pump or low on oil, possible bad cam (but not likely)
first thing i would do is check your oil real low oil will cause this
if oil is fine check for oil pressure if oil pressure is low assume bad oil pump
if oil prssure looks good look for bad lifters or loose rocker arms

All lifters started clicking at once


Sounds more likely to be a timing rattle rather then all the lifters at once making noise, if your EGR valve is bad this will happen and if the timing is off it will also do this, I can't buy the theory all 16 hydraulic lifters are noisey unless you over reved it something fierce, or ran it out of oil, or had someone loosen all the rockers.
Happy Motoring!!

Something in my valve train is ticking, louder when cold or upon start up. It sounds like one colapsed lifter as I can count the clicks.I was told this 2000 honda civic lx dosent have adjustable valves so...


REMOVE THE VALVE COVER AND CHECK THE ROCKER ARMS WITH GAUGE OR JUST TRY TO SHAKE THEM FOR FIGURE IT OUT LOSE ONE. CHECK THE LIFTER SEATS IF ANYTHING BLOCKING THE OIL PASSAGE TO MAKE ITS JOB.IF YOU GONNA REPLACE GET TORQUE SPECS OR IF ANY ADJUSTMENT REQUIRED.

Does 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 have hydraulic lifters? I posted a question a few days ago regarding engine loud ticking which sounds like lifter noise. It doesn't have that deep sounding knock. I went to...


I would not believe any thing some parts store loser told you. Theres not a V8 built that doesnt have hydraulic lifters, unless its some fancy racin engine. It has hydraulic lifters, but unless you dont change your oil every 5k miles and/or use some cheap oil, there should be no problems. You should have a real mechanic look at it, and verify that you have good oil pressure. If it does, I would change the oil and use some MOBIL 1 and drive it, the oil will clean the lifters somewhat. If the eng has low oil pressure, that will need to be addressed.

Noise motor on 03 santa fe a guy told me it sound like the lifters but i want to be for sure


Hi if your getting a tapping noise on the top of the engine then yes it's the lifters making the the noise but before changing the lifters check that oil pressure is where it's suppose to be and that the oil is circulating and you have a good amount of pressure getting to the lifters if that's ok then replace lifters good luck
