Q: Excessive noise from camshaft

asked by on

I am hearing excessive noise from the camshafts. They either need an adjustment or replaced.

The noise you are hearing are probably the lifters. Over time, they will start sticking and will make a ticking noise. I would recommend having a technician come out to inspect the noise to make sure what the issue is.
