  • Valve lifters

    Hello everyone Iv seen some old threads regarding this but none of them
    Answer my questions lol! Iv got tapping noise from rear of the engine, I rang nick the other week tried describing it, it taps faster more I give on the throttle but Iv only tested this when the car is hot when it's cold if I rev it sounds like I'm strangling a mouse!

          Any chance you come up bluewater or anything like that at anytime? Or if you ever need an extra pair of hands fitting something to the car I got lots of tools and jacks lol. I just want to hear another one to see if they sound the same! Thing is Iv had an insignia Vxr when I lived with mummy and daddy lol I had a Saab 93 with the 2.8 but can't remember if they all sounded the same

                        Hello everyone thanks for the replies sorry I been at work, nick it's a 56 plate! The tapping noise increase with revs! While the car is sitting there ticking over it's not to noticeable but rev it abit and it taps quicker! I read a thread about the fuel evap valve could that have had it's day possibly? Anyone got picture or part number, replace cheapest 1st! Maybe nick has one for me?

                            It would be a lash post your referring to making the noise. They don't have valve lifters like the old engines. You need a special tool to compress the spring while keeping the cam in place. It's a ball ache to on some of them. Just to add injectors also make the similar noise.
