Diagnosing the Engine Knock
Trying to figure out what the engine noise is. Looks like lifters that
won't drain down plus maybe some plugged up oil squirters.

Honda Accord Valve Adjustment - EricTheCarGuy
This one was a request from a couple of viewers, I like to keep you all
happy so here you go. This video is actually taken from a larger video I
call "Accord Smackdown", in it I replace the timing belt, radiator, a major
service, and some other stuff that I don't remember. I think there will be
a couple more videos from this "smackdown" in the future, there is some
good stuff in there that I think you will like and possibly learn from. If
you have other topics you would like covered don't hesitate to let me know,
I'm happy to give you what you want. Post them as text or video responses
to this or any of my videos.
I'm going to get the part number for the tool I used in the video sometime
next week and post it here so keep your socks on and check back sometime

VW Lifter Removal - You have Never seen This!
TDI Engine Lifter Removal Photo Slide Show. (Note: Head is out of engine)
I was told that it would cost me $400+ to remove the 8 Lifters (Buckets) at
a local machine shop. First I used a strong magnet (from a hard drive) to
pull out all the lifters that moved freely. Then I used a High Speed
cutting tool (like a Dremal) to cut slits in the top of the stuck Lifters.
I then used a flat head screwdriver and sprayed WD40 to rotate the lifter
until it was less stuck. One 3" drywall screw was inserted as close to the
center of the lifter as I could get. First I tried to pull it up by hand
if that does not work then try some long pliers. After all lifters & valves
were removed I washed the head in acetone to remove all the metal shavings.
Remember: You should only work on the head after it has been removed. I
used a battery powerd engraver to pre-mark all valves and lifters.
I was told that typically, the Lifters on VW, if removed correctly can be
replaced by new ones. Also if only one Lifter appears damaged that all 8
Lifters have to be replaced due to unseen metal crack. I got my new
lifters from MetalManParts.com.
Note1: New Lifters come dry and should be installed dry. After you run the
car for over 10 minutes all 8 will fill with oil.
This is not that big of a deal on SOHCs but it is the rule.
Note2: I forgot to mention that I used a drill to test to see if the valves
were bent or not. And while the valve was in the drill and spinning I used
Mothers(tm) polishing compount to shine each valve to a mirror finish. The
keepers that hold the valves require a 30mm socket and a small magnet to
remove(or the proper tool). Putting the keepers back in is hard if you
don't have the right valve spring compressor.
valve sound? lifters? help me!
my car is making some clicking noise and i cant figure what might be. Its
2001 eclipse gt 3.0, it does it all the time.
I found the problem
It looks like I have a flat hydraulic lifter. Here's the initial findings
in arriving at this diagnosis.
4.3 engine knock lifter or bearing?
any idea weather its a rod bearing or a lifter or even summin else? the
service engine light is on because i have the air intake off. Just did an
oil change not even a week ago (10w30) and added lucas oil treatment to it
also. noise gets faster with rpms
Honda S2000 engine noise. TCT (Timing Chain Tensioner)
***UPDATE***: Installed a new TCT. The new TCT cost me $250 including
install at Firestone. The ticking noise came back about 2-3k mikes later so
I sandblasted the worm gear and piston from the original TCT, popped that
in and its working fine. So if you need a new TCT, I suggest you just
sandblast the worm gear and the inside of the piston of your current "worn
out" TCT. Its basically free and it only takes 5 min to take it out, 15 min
to sandblast and clean, then 5 min to put it back in.******* ------The
first clip is a cold start. Notice the "ticking" or "clicking" noise isn't
there AT ALL. The second clip is after a 20 minute drive, (warm engine).
When the engine is warm(hot) the VERY Noticeable "ticking/clicking" noise
comes to life. This vid is being uploaded for my brother/mechanic.
........Going in Wednesday to get a new TCT (Timing Chain Tensioner) to
see if that helps solve the problem. After that probably a valve
