Re: noisy lifters

Did you run a flush through it before you drained the old oil? There are some additives that claim to free sticky lifters - but I've never tried any of them so can't comment on whether they work or not.

I once had a ticking lifter in my Legacy that only occured once it got past 5000km since the oil was last changed. I used a non-kero flush in it (Eagle or something was the name) on 2 consecutive oil changes & the tick has never returned.

Was that "Gold Eagle" engine oil flush?. If so, it's good to take a note of something that works and doesn't stuff up the motor.

cheers

Re: noisy lifters

Well i put in new lifters with my new cam and they were louder then the old ones??? But give it a while and they get better, coz sometimes they rotate and loose a bit of pressure. Don't worry.

Re: noisy lifters

The trick I did when I replaced my lifters is to fill up the new ones with oil before puting back in rocker gear. They only make a noise for 20,to 30 seconds then.

Yeah - that sounds like it. It was a clear container - black cap - and the flush itself was a browny-gold - really thin. I got it at Segedins here in Auckland - I have to go there for some other stuff in the next week so I'll check the name when I'm there & post it. I think it's American - I seem to remember the quantity was an imperial measure.

I ran a precautionary flush through my XF when I got it too.

Stupid Woolworths brain - should have just looked it up before I posted:

I know the name is tacky - kinda like something a coconut would put on his jacked-up 4K Corolla - but it's good stuff IMHO.

roll

hey you knockin 4k's????? the motors rock! we got em at tafe anyway yes i flushed.........and flushed........and it still did it so i flushed the bugger again.......... it only ticks all the time for the first 1000kms i found then itll only do it for a bit in the mornin but i change my oil every 5000 so the whole cycle will start again im goin to wait till i get a new cam before i change the lifters and yeah filling them with oil when you put em in helps em bleed up faster...well thats what i figured
