SES light came on while pulling my trailer uphill. Auto zone read a cylinder 4 misfire. Was advised to add Seafoam to the intake. It soon began taking water into the crankcase. Advance Auto suggested Blue Devil coolant additive to no avail. BD is is head gasket "fix." Replaced the intake manifold gaskets; but didn't think to check the lifters wihile I was in there. Changed oil four times then flushed engine with BG engine flush. Still have a nasty rattle...
Update! this turned out to be stuck lifters due to the Blue Devil treatment. Replaced a lifter for cylinder 4 and rebuilt the remaining 11 lifters. Runs great now...
Bye Bye Transmission...
dan running his truck threw the mud out behind the barn. guess the
transmission was going to go eventually considering it had 200,000+ miles
and hauled horse trailers most of its life. but it drove in and it drove
out all on its own.
heres a little info about the truck:
1999 ram 1500
4 inch suspension lift
dana 60 front/ dana 70 rear
gutted cat into flowmaster muffler all 3" pipe.
tires are 35x15 interco tsl boggers on 16.5x12 MT classic wheels
Chevy Vortec lifter & valve tap how to repair it
this video has info on how to fix a severe valve tap or sticky lifter using
1 quart of automatic transmission fluid with 4 quarts of oil. the trans
fluid is a high detergent that loosens up sludge build up in a motor from
lack of oil changes, you will be amazed at what pouring 1 quart of trans
fluid in a neglected motor can do. the truck in this video got a double
treatment and now runs smooth with no taps and the check engine light went
out as soon as I started it. also after the second treatment I changed the
oil & filter and the clumps of sludge that were left in it broke down into
the oil from the trans fluid and it flushed it out. I
I realize I bash fram oil filters in this video and any filter wouldnt have
helped in this case because the truck was so neglected any filter would
have pluged up. howerver,,, Fram in my opinion is cheap crap.and over the
years of having hundreads of cars I can honestly say if you have 2
identical engines 1 using Fram the other using Wix or Napa the Fram motor
will die prematurely due to lack of filtering.

2000 Chevy S10 4.3l V6 engine tapping
My truck started making this loud tapping sound. I can't quite narrow it
down so I thought maybe someone could help me out. The truck has 102,xxx
miles with all regular maintainance done since the day I bought it new from
the dealership. Oil pressure is good. Temprature is normal. Oil looks clean
not milky like when a head gasket goes. I'm stumped.

Many of you understood where I was coming from when making the original
video but I felt that I needed to go into a little more explanation based
on some of the other comments in the original video. Every technician does
things differently based on their personal experience and I for one respect
your input so feel free to comment as much as you like and question what I
do, it is after all how I will grow and get better at what I do.

parts in engine oil pump, (main, rod, and camshaft) bearings, piston rings,
push rods, valves, timing chain and sprockets, and a full gasket set. Also
new on the truck alternator, starter, serpentine belt, sway bar end links,
aftermarket intake, tachometer, thrush welded muffler, 10.5mm spark plug
wires, spark plugs, upper ball joints, U-joints, drive shaft bearing, fuel
filter, front brake line, tie rod end, pads and rotors, wipers, window
