How do I fix the tapping sound from the engine when i accelerate after it has reached running temperature


Adjust the valve tappets (yes, they 'tap') AKA Rockers or find out why the hydraulic self adjusting tappets don't work?

They transfer the downward motion of the cams on the camshaft to depress the valves. There is a thin clearance of about 8 thousandths of an inch with the engine cold. As the engine heats the clearance reduces. Over tightening causes the valve edges to burn, too much clearance causes tapping.

Manual tappets get quieter usually as the engine heats. Hydraulic tappets gets worse as the engine heats as the oil thins.

I would like to set the tappets sound like a diesel motor


Depending on the engine will determine if you can "adjust the tappets". Older cars had solid lifters so they had to be adjusted. Newer cars have hydraulic lifters and need no adjusting.

If your tappets sound like a "diesel motor" it may be they are not getting oil - or the center of the tube that provides oil to the tappets are blocked.

Need to remove the valve cover and run the engine just long enough to see if oil is coming out of the lifter. If when you remove the valve cover and the lifters look dry then you have a "lubricating problem" and you need to get it taken care of immediately.

Mitsubishi 4D33 tappet clearance


Most engines having tappets that can be adjusted run .010" inlet and .012" exhaust hot. Best check to be sure but if you want to get the engine running add .002" to the measurements cold and readjust when you have the correct measurements. If you have hydraulic tappets just start the engine and oil pressure will adjust automatically

What is tappet settings


Hydraulic tappets are tappets that contain a small hydraulic piston, pressurised by the engine's lubricating oil supply.[5] Although the piston does not move appreciably or frequently, it acts as a hydraulic spring that automatically adjusts the tappet clearance according to the oil pressure. This makes the valve actuation self-adjusting and there is no need to adjust the rockers. Hydraulic tappets depend on a supply of clean oil at the appropriate pressure. When starting a cold engine, with low oil pressure, hydraulic tappets are often noisy for a few seconds, until they position themselves correctly.

Late 1988 GPX250 sounds like noisy tappets. Do these need to be replaced or can they be adjusted?


the valve clearances will be adjustable.
If it has shims for the adjustments, you need to measure the clearance, remove the shims that need adjustment(may need cams removed) and replace shims with thicker or thinner ones to correct clearances.
cam chain also needs regular replacement, and can cause rattling noises, as it may be 23 years old, this is also possible.

I am owning an palio1.9d now i am facing tappet noise and i my self adjusted the tappet by replacing the shims and i kept the clearane to inlet-14 and exhaust-16 but still theres slightly sound what shall...


I know from experience with Mercedes diesels that correct tappet clearance is critical. As the engine wears you may need to accommodate for wear. I would adjust again closing the gap but, very very little. I would be careful not to overdo. I may be wasting my words but, make sure you are on the heal of the cam when making the measurement. Let me know if you need anything else.

Can you set valve clearances on a 1997 clio 1.2 engine.my engine sounds as if the tappets are noisey.


The tappet clearence should be in the owners handbook but it's a bit early a tappet noise from the engine (2006) ! Check oil level and change if it's overdue a service is definately worth a look ! Good luck

My yamaha 350 warrior, and it wont start, Do i need to adjust the valve? How do i do that?


adjustment of valve reasonably simple, remove tappet covers, remove small bung from mag cover top and rotate engine until you are able to see a capital T on the flywheel, providing whist you rotated engine it was on the correct stroke the inlet valve should have just closed when you saw the T. this is the correct stroke. loosen tappets lock nuts, adjust the tappets so you can just move it with your fingers, if your want to get technical the clearances between tappet and valve should be about .05mm

Datsun stanza 1980 tappets (lifters)


This car has hydraulic lifters( tappets} therefore should not adjustment, you probably have a bad or weak lifter. But, in any case you have to remove the valve covers to make the adjustment. You will see the adjustable bolt on the rocker arm. rotate the engine until the valve is all the way to the top, [no tension on the valve spring] then place a feeler Gage in between the rocker arm and the valve stem, adjust the rocker arm until the feeler Gage is snug but not tight. Do this with each valve. Check the book for the correct Gage to use but I think it is a .018.
