Hey Mart==Generally just one valve ticking wouldn't cause a power loss. It deoends on what kind of car and engine you have. It could be an injector ticking which would cause a dead miss. GoodluckJoe

What is that annoying ticking noise mustangs make when you change the oil?

The ticking sound is coming from the valve lifters. When the oil filter is changed, air is introduced into the system, which causes air bubbles to form in the oil. This causes the valve lifters to "leak down", which is what causes the ticking sound. It can take several days for the bubbles to dissipate. It's annoying, but harmless.

It's a rocker arm tapping at valve stem. Hydraulic lifters (hydraulic rocker mounts) are the common reason for the ticking. If it doesn't go away when the engine heats up, consider replacing the lifter where the ticking comes from.

What causes ticking in the engine of a 95 Saturn sl1?

The "ticking" sound that is most common among Saturn's is caused by a slightly expanded gap in the valve spacing. It could, of course, be something else, but that seems most common. If that's what's going on, it probably isn't worth much effort to repair. Valve clatter isn't typically a problem unless it gets severe.

If they are mechanical lifters, then there is an adjustment under the valve cover. If they are hydraulic then there is no adjustment, and while a different weight motor oil or special additive may help the ticking there is not real way to stop it.

What causes intermittent hot water supply?

Now that's definitely a puzzler. I've never come across that before, I'd start by cleaning or throwing out all the aerators. Then clean out the H/W tank: - You first turn OFF the power to tank, then attach a hose pipe to the bottom fitting, lead it outside or to any drain, turn on the valve by it, turn OFF your inlet valve and open the relief valve so air can enter the H/W tank.Let the whole tank empty -takes about 30 -40 minutes. Next, when empty turn ON the inlet valve and let cold water run through the tank and out the hose, now you will see the sludge coming out. Let this run 5-7 minutes or until water is coming through clean. Now you are done . Let it fill, then turn on power. If, after all this, you still have intermittent hot I would call a plumber

Why do engine lifters wear?

As with anything mechanical the springs or hydraulics eventually lose their ability to properly lift the valve back up quickly, which causes valve float and loss of power at the top end of the engine.
