Question about Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
If the noise is gone,the lifter is unstuck,don't worry about it.I would run 2 cans of a high detergent additive to the oil just to clean up the lifters before the next oil change and use a high quality oil on the next oil change.
Rislone makes a good product for a lifter cleaning. PUT 2 CANS IN THE OIL.

valve lifters make a kind of rattly knocking noise! which sort of follow engine revs.if they are gone you may need a new camshaft as well, best to do itr all at the same time and are sold as a kit.are you sure there is a new noise or are you just listening harder?

SOURCE: Blower motor or resistor?
I had a truck about the same year with the same problem, it was the wiring harness, but id check the resistor and the fan first before replacing anythings,

Go to the shop, remove the oil dipstick and smell the oil, ( well maybe first you should get a base line by smelling normal, new oil) if you burned up your oil, it will smell really bad like burnt....well burnt oil like when a car is blowing blue smoke. If it smells really bad like burnt, they are probably telling you the truth and you need to find out where the oil leaked out...if it seems like the oil drained out the oil pan or the filter, the people who changed your oil could be held liable for not tightening down those parts properly. Since you werent burning oil, my guess is that you were leaking it. If the motor will not turn over but you can hear the starter engage, you definatley seezed up you engine. But i really really hope that the mechanics are full of **** and that you do not need to replace your engine. No matter what you do, keep any parts removed from your vehicle to have inspected by another mechanic for review. For instance, if you have brake pads replace at the discression of the mechanic, ask for the old brake pads back and take to antoher shop to see if they really needed to be replaced or not.
