Q: Engine ticking, lifters keep getting worn

asked by on

The issue with my car started about ten months ago, when I noticed the ticking noise coming from the engine area. I took it to a mechanic who replaced the lifter. That fixed the noise for a while.

Hello. The lifters that get worn is from a lack of lubrication. Have your engine checked for any sludge build up, and if so, make sure you are using the correct oil viscosity and you may want to use full synthetic oil.
