Lifter Tick Question - Before I Make Another Mistake
So I misdiagnosed (SP?) my noise and replaced my flex plate without fixing the noise. So before I go through what it takes to replace my lifters, I have a quick question for those in the know.
If the lifter is ticking, does the tick go away as the engine RPMs go up? Mine goes away when I rev over 1,200 or so. I'll post a quick phone video after work today.
I've already checked the idler and tensioner pulleys, ran it without any drive belts on and the noise was still there. With a stethoscope, it sounds like it is coming from the rear of the engine, so maybe the DOD lifter in #7?
Thanks for any and all help.
