Are you sure that the lifters are creating the noise? I have had a 94 LE and a 99 CE Camry 4 cyl. and have had the same noise in the AC compressor. Dealer claimed it was the belts slapping the timing cover and wanted $1,200 to fix. I got the timing belt water pump and all tune up parts for $200 and did it myself. While the sound is still there I found out from a local mechanic that the toyo compressors have a bad habit of rattling like lifters. hope this helped.

AnswerIs it possible that it is time for a oil change?Sometimes a speck of dirt gets in the lifter[s] and that makes them act as solid lifters,thus the noise. ....

you can try adding "lucas engine oil additive: but pretty much all that is happing is the lifters are little noisy until the oil circulates thru engine and lifters, basically not much you can do about it

After 50.000 miles or so. Also if the car starts to use more fuel than is normal, or if the engine starts to lose power or if the engine starts to get too noisy.

There is no adjustment for hydraulic valve lifters. Lifters can be noisy on some of these models. After ascertaining there is no mechanical damage/broken parts, change engine oil and add 1/2 bottle of STP Oil Treatment (or more if necessary) until lifters are quieter.

While the engine is turned off the oil will drain from the top of the engine. The Lumina has hydraulic lifters and uses oil to move them. The lifters will "tap" until the oil builds up enough to hold them up. Make sure that the engine has enough oil, that the oil pressure is ok, and that the oil does not need changing. If these are ok then an additive may be added to aid in quieting noisy lifters.

Is it a big problem to have noisy tappets in your engine?

There is no valve adjustment on the 2.4 litre 4G64 engine as it has hydraulic lifters fitted, if they are noisy then there are oil additives to clean them or they may need replacing.

I have gone to mobil 1 15/50 this seems to work real good...sometimes I still have to start and turn off the engine right away and this works when the lifters get noisey also

Noisy lifters in 2.2 and 2.5 sohc engines are usually indicative of a worn camshaft, as many were replaced under warranty.

to my knowledge there is no power steering filter i would check my power steering fluid level

1. Make sure it is the lifters and not loose wrist pins. 2. Check the camshaft for wear. When the lobes wear beyond the take-up tolerance of the hydraulic lifters, clicking is the result. Your favorite garage may have an instrument to check actual pushrod movement against what is called for by the published camshaft lift.

The ticking may be due to any of a number of things, including worn lifters or noisy injectors. Is the ticking louder after the engine warms up? This would point to noisy lifters, since the oil thins slightly as it heats up. Have a reputable mechanic determine where the noise is coming from and whether or not it's anything to worry about.

remove intake and valve covers, loosen rocker arms, remove push rods, and take the lifters out, replace lifters and put everything back to torque spec. Book time is about 3 hours.

No adjustment can be made. The lifters are hydraulic. The rocker arm nuts are torqued to 19-22 ft lbs. If you have noisy lifters replacement is necessary. Replacing the lifters requires removal of the head. Be sure to also check cam and push rods for wear.

If the hydraulic lifters are making noise they shouldn't be making, then there's probably more to it, and it's likely a problem which should be covered under such a warranty.

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.

If the lifters are noisy, usually replacing lifters alone won't fix it. 2.9's dump oil internally, as the cam bearings wear. excessive oil is lost between the cam journal, and the cam bearing. Not enough oil actually reaches the top end. Additionally, you have to remove the cylinder heads, to get the lifters out of their bores. That's a lot of work for a repair that may or may not work. You may as well pull the engine, replace the cam bearings and cam, and lifters. Since you've gone that far, you may as well install a Melling high volume oil pump.

Sometimes depending on why lifters are noisy. If there is a piece of dirt stuck in one or it's damaged it needs replacing

It has hydraulic lifters that are known to get noisy. Mazda sells a shim set that can be installed under each lifter to reduce clearance so that the lifters don't require as much pump-up travel. The lifters are located in the ends of the rocker arms, replacing or shimming them requires the removal of part of the intake plenum. You can also buy new lifters in the aftermarket for about $20. each, but there is 12 so it's not exactly cheap.

There could be several reasons why you have a noisy hydraulic valve lifter. One reason could be worn our parts in the entire valve train. A loose rocker arm could also cause noise.

Yes you can but the engine performance will drop and it may be noisy.

Too little oil makes lifters noisy. Without enough oil the lifters can't pressurize enough to close the gaps in the valve train. Driving too long with the condition can make it permanent even after adding more oil.

No, the word 'noisy' is an adjective, a word used to describe a noun (a noisy engine, a noisyclassroom).The word 'noisy' is the adjective form of the noun noise, a concrete noun, a word for something that can be heard.The noun form of the adjective 'noisy' is noisiness, an abstract noun; a word for a condition of noise being present.

It has a timing chain that should last the life of the engine. However if it is noisy then it may very well need replacing. Have it inspected.
