it will cause the engine to overheat and also coolant to enter the oil system, which will in turn cause wear of the lifters.

typically no it should be hydraulic lifters unless someone has changed the cam and lifters in the engine.

Engine Overheating is the major cause.

That engine has a ROLLER CAM AND ROLLER LIFTERS

You have to remove the engine cylinder heads to get to the lifters on the 5.3.

There are 2 lifters per cylinder. So there are 8.

User Avatar

the lifters may need adjusting or replacing. your engine not getting enough oil causes the lifters to make noise. not sure what motor you have in it but if it's an engine where you can tighten the lifters then you can buy a tool for it if you know what your doing

no oil in engine or water in radiator will cause engine to seriously o/heat! and eventually seize! major engine damage!!

Yes, If vehicle overheats it may cause freon (refrigerant) to blow out

How do you blow a engine turbo.

User Avatar

Adding 5 quarts of oil to an engine and overfilling it can cause the seals to blow out. This can cause engine failure.

User Avatar

The Gaseous buildup inside of the internal combustion chamber would cause engine failure, the engine to blow, and explode litterally

User Avatar

The engine overheating, or a faulty gasket, or problems with hot spots in the engine.

User Avatar

It's not recommended to change just the lifters. The cam and lifters should be replaced together. To get at the lifters, you can remove the rocker covers and intake manifold, loosen the rockers enough to get the pushrods out, then pull out the lifters.

User Avatar

Yes, but you must keep the lifters with the cam they were originally used with.

User Avatar

Hydraulic lifters would be STOCK from the factory. On the 84 engine.

Blow by is caused when combustion gases get past the piston into the crank case. The cause will be piston, rings, or cylinder wall.
