It might make a small difference but not enough to notice. Replace all your lifters while you are at it. Also replace the push rods and have the rocker arms assembly checked. Have your heads checked while they are off. No sense paying someone twice to do a similar procedure 3 months down the road.

How do I stop the ticking on the lifter on a 1996 jeep GC 4.0?


When my engine had a LOUD, persistent tick, I made sure that the engine was warmed up, turned it off, drained the oil, chased it with Lucas engine oil treatment (so that I got more dirt out of it), changed the oil filter with a decent one (as I no longer use Fram Extra Guard filters--but have no problem with their Tough Guard filters), refill the crankcase with fresh oil that meets or exceeds the specification on the oil cap, on the oil dipstick, or in the manual to the quantity that's also specified in the manual. Be safe & have fun!

Ticking noise


You have a bad lifter if left unattended its starts by" ticking" then "tapping" then eventually ceases up!! The fix..... Have a compression test done on each cylinder and pull valve cover off and replace ticking lifter or u might just get lucky and adjust it... Until then ..... A heavier weight oil will quiet it down...Not a fix tho......

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!

2001 S Type V8- moderate to loud ticking sound in the engine (sounds like metal to metal contact). The ticking is constant, at idle or throttled. One mechanic thought it might be the #8 lifter spring?


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. That is possible. More then likely, it is a associated with the valve lifter. If it was a rod, you would hear a knocking sound compared to the ticking sounds a bad lifter gives off. As far as which lifter it is, the only way to know for sure if by taking off the valve cover and examining the lifters. You are in the right area though. Check your lifters and you should fine what is causing the ticking. Put all your focus on that area. Your friend sounds like he knows what he is talking about so he may be able to help you work on it if you are not able.

I got my 97 infiniti from my former boss who sold it to me knowing it had lifter problems. Now my lifters are really really loud and the car will barely get out of first gear. once i get past 20 mph it...


This requires some serious work which will involve removing certain valvetrain components in order to remove and replace your lifters. Since it would be virtually impossible to identify a faulty lifter when disassembled any shop or dealer will advise you to replace all of them. Other parts/gaskets will also be needed for this repair as well. This could cost into the thousands of dollar range. I would call around for quotes. Your hydraulic lifter is basically a pressurized cylinder which a pushrod, plunger, oil chamber, check valve and a spring. Most of the time dirt or grit in your motor oil can block the oil passage way of the lifter and with no oil in the chamber you'll get a ticking noise which can get louder and sometimes even go away. No oil will definately cause it to wear out quickly. Your lifters are part of the system that opens/closes your intake/exhaust valves. You can try this method in the mean time by using a motor flush and changing your oil as recommended or change your oil and use 20% atf in your oil mixture (example 4qts motor oil 1qt atf) and then flush and change it in about 1000 miles. This may or may not help. If it does it saved you a fortune.

I have a loud ticking under my valve cover. 97 ford escort. I think its a loose valve but is it some thing i can fix. I know a little about cars. but not an expert


not a valve, but a lifter. I will paste procedure below. You judge if you can do it or not. Recommend you replace them all while you're in there. If you let this go, the lifter will wear out the camshaft. Lifters are $22 each, and you have 8 of them. You will also need a new valve cover gasket.
Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

See Figures 6, 7, 8 and 9
  1. Disconnect the engine air cleaner-to-valve cover hose from the cover by compressing the hose clamp with pliers and sliding the clamp back, then separate the hose from the cover.
  2. Remove the spark plug wire separators from the valve cover and set the wire assemblies aside.
  3. Unfasten the three valve cover retaining bolts.
  4. Remove the valve cover and gasket from the cylinder head.
WARNING Do not use any abrasive grinding discs to remove gasket material. Use a plastic manual gasket scraper to remove the gasket residue. Be careful not to scratch or gouge the aluminum sealing surfaces when cleaning them.

If removing more than one valve lifter (tappet), mark the lifters and their locations as they must be installed in their original bores.

  1. Remove the rocker arm(s).
  2. Unfasten the lifter guide plate retainer.
  3. Remove the guide plate and the lifter.


To install:
  1. The oil feed hole in the lifter must face away from the oil feed hole in the cylinder head.
  2. Lubricate the lifter(s) with clean 5W-30 engine oil and install them in their original bores.

Make sure the lifter guide plate retainer tabs are towards the rear of the cylinder head, and the lifter guide plate tabs are towards the front of the cylinder head.
  1. Install the lifter guide plate and tighten the retainer.
  2. Install the rocker arms.
Do not use any sealer with a silicone type gasket.
  1. Install a new gasket and the valve cover.
  2. Install and tighten the valve cover retainers to 71-97 inch lbs. (8-11.5 Nm).
  3. Attach the spark plug wire separators to the cylinder head.
  4. Connect the engine air cleaner-to-valve cover hose and engage the hose clamp

New 26 hp twin cylender bad lifter noise at hi rpm


You either have a lifter out of adjustment or it might even be plugged. Are you sure it is the the lifter and nothing from the engagement controls. Sometimes if you dis-engage the mower and it doesn't complete the cycle it makes a loud ticking noise. If you are certain it is a lifter I wouldn't let it run at high idle until I had it checked. It is easier to adjust one than it is to replace one.

That ticking your hearing is most likely a valve lifter or tappet that is dirty or failing.At low RPM the oil pressure is lower, as you increase the engine speed the oil pressure rises; with this the lifter sees more oil pressure too and it fills fully with oil thus the ticking stops. You may be able to fluch the oil system in hopes of cleaning out any debris; my gut says the lifter is beginning to fail and should be replaced. If you have the ability and tools this is something you can do in your garage; pick up a manual and review the procedure before tearing into the engine.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom
