3 easy steps to reduce or even stop tapper noise!!
Step1- Go to Supercheap and buy 5l Castrol GTX2 20W/50 oil and filter for $30. Also pickup some Redex, Wynn's or Nulon Engine flush 500ml bottle for $10, sump plug washer pack $4 and a 500ml bottle of Wynn's Tune Up or Nulon Lifter Free for $10.
Step2- While in carpark at supercheap, pop the bonnet and add the engine flush to your oil and then drive home.
Step3- Once home, park car up and drain oil for 2hrs into a container then remove old oil filter. Now install new oil filter, sump plug with new washer and add 5l of Castrol GTX2. Now add the lifter free additive to your oil, start car and let engine run at idle. You will be suprised as in about 5-10 secs you will never hear lifter noise again and your oil pressure should read a little higher.
