Tap Tap Tapping

when i first start my xf there is no noise, but after ive been driving for a while it starts tapping. ive got a set of new lifters for it but i got told if i put new lifters in i should do the cam aswell. would it hurt that much to put the new lifters in?

Re: Tap Tap Tapping

New lifters can go with an old cam but eyeball the lobes first.

Re: Tap Tap Tapping

Are you sure it's the lifters tapping & not the charcoal canister purge valve touching the chassis on the passengers side of the engine bay? I'm speaking from my experience...

Re: Tap Tap Tapping

Could it be an oil issue too?

Re: Tap Tap Tapping

i put a thicker oil in and it seemed to settle the noise down a bit.
