Just wondering if there is something that could be done to help prevent me / us from dealing with the dreaded lifter tick issue we get ? Nothing like preventive maintenance .
Welcome to the Ls family! haha, i hear ya tho i cant stand it. every LS series motor i have herd still have the lifter tick in some way!! /QUOTE]
Ha . Yea I figure its gonna happen eventually. Thought there just might be a way to prevent it . What causes it ?
Definitely not. The DOD system fails quite often. Most of the time it's just a lifter failure that is fixable, but in rare occasions I have seen some complete engine failures due to a DOD lifter coming apart and falling down into the rotating assembly.So theoretically disabling the DOD feature of the engine may actually increase its longevity?
