What would cause a ticking sound on a 1996 Honda Passport?

i have that problem. i was told it was the lifters, but it's a pricey job. that's the best i can do for you. i believe you have to remove the head gasket in order to get to them. -NEW ANSWER- I HAVE THAT PROBLEM ALSO... MY MECHANIC TOLD ME THAT THAT SOUND IS THE LIFTERS, BUT WHAT IT ACTUALLY IS DOING IS THE LIFTERS ARE TAPPING AGAINST THE DIPSTICK IN THE CRANKSHAFT. HE TOLD ME NOT TO WORRY, IT IS AN ANNOYING SOUND BUT IT'S NOT DOING ANY INTERNAL DAMAGE TO THE MOTOR... IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO GET RID OF THAT SOUND, THEN YOU WOULD HAVE TO OPEN THE HEAD, AND HAVE THE LIFTERS REPLACED. The Crankshaft is nowhere near the lifers. It's the rockers slapping against the lifters that you hear. Not much of a problem if you don't mind the noise, just keep an eye on your oil pressure.

Ticking sound Dodge ram?

Dodge Rams are known for their ticking due to "noisy lifters". This problem has been ID'd by some individuals as Dodge's use of cheap Chinese made lifters for their 5.7s. To get rid of this you would actually need to replace the lifters with after market lifters. Now if you're referring to a tapping+fluttering sound when you accelerate then you will most likely need to check on your valves.

Do you need new hydraulic roller lifters if you have a new cam?

Officially you should change lifters anytime you change the cam. In real world use; unless the roller lifters have obvious, visual damage, missing pins, wear on surface of the roller, then it is not normally going to be a problem. In the case of flat lifters, you should change them. The cam of flat tappet (regular) lifters, have a slight bevel to the surface of the cam. When the cam and lifter are in operation - this causes the lifters to rotate in their bore. After/during break-in, there is some wear on both surfaces and they end up with a pattern which is unique for each bore and and each cam/lifter combination. If you change either the order of the lifters on the original cam they meshed with, or install a new cam or new lifters - there is a very real chance of accelerated wear leading to failure of cam and lifter. What is worse - the resulting debris can follow the oil and ruin bearing surfaces throughout the engine. Your money, your choice.

Actually "tappets" is a term that has not been used for a l;tong time. Yu are probably referring to the valves or lifters. If you are having a tapping sound coming from the top of your engine, the rockers probably have to be adjusted or there may be a problem with lifters or pushrods.
