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. ....

Why does lifters rap when you first start your 97 lumina ls but clears up until next morning when starting again?

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.

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.

How do you fix a 1995 Mazda 626 that has recently had an oil changed and the clicking sound is still present?

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.

How do I replace 2.9 L lifters?

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.

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.

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.

You can also buy new lifters in the aftermarket for about $20. each, but there is 12 so it's not exactly cheap.
