Ticking......

I'm fairly certain my 8 has started to sound a bit "tappety" which I noticed the other day. At first I thought or should I say "hoping" it was something completely innocent that was loose and making the noise but I'm not so sure.

I thought I had solid lifters fitted but I'll need to check over the spec list to see, it may have been just a TI valve kit that was used.

Question is, what do you recommend to use? I see ND do lifters with 3mm oil holes that solve the ticking noise and then there's solid lifters at a much greater cost. The spec of the car is rod job with gsc stage 2 cams running roughly 550.

Also, is this an easy job to tackle or best left to the garage?

Cheers

First part is from a cold start, second part is after 10 short blips to 3k and the last part was after driving it 1 mile to work, oil temp was up @ 35 degrees, never took a note of the oil pressure and the water temp was rising up to its normal place.

I'm needing to go to Stirling later so I'm going to check it again when it's at normal running temp. Ironically enough I noticed the ticking the other day when I had drove to work so at that point in temp etc it obviously sounds bad, I wonder if it will get better.

Updated vid with engine up to full working temp, it definitely quietens down. Anything to worry about? Or should I change them sooner rather than later?

Ticking noises often have us thinking the worst.

Being honest its difficult to tell much from the video, However, in the section of the video when the car is up to temp its sounds more like an air leak. Have you looked and listened closely around both the inlet and exhaust manifold for anything?

That never crossed my mind, car runs spot on, boosts well. When you're standing there listening it does seem as if it's coming from the head.

Not checked anything, will do though. I'm a baw hair away from ordering the 3mm lifters and a tool for removing them. I've watched a few videos YouTube showing the process of cleaning the existing lifters but it's a lengthy process. I'd rather purchase the 3mm lifters, fit them then maybe see if I can salvage the oe lifters.

My special tool is a screw driver & hammer & a rag..........

Turn engine so the cam has no lift..........
Stick driver in & twist off the rocker & a rag to catch it.........
Pull out lifter............
"hammer to knock them in"

Easy wee job

Aye mate, that's what I'm getting at. It will sound like the noise is coming from the head. A decent garage/workshop should have listening equipment which can help pin-point the noise. This could possibly help if you have somewhere local.

A small leak somewhere wouldn't cause loss of boost, in the same way as an intercooler pipe blowing off for example.

Think I'd definitely check that blanking plate in the link zefal posted. Good info there, think I'll even check mine considering the way that plate has deteriorated.

Good luck with it

One thing that's doing my head in though, when you've done sets before have you bled the lifters so you can still depress them when fitted or do you have them solid - you can't depress them by hand.

I've seen conflicting information both on forums and YouTube videos.

And on first start up are they pretty loud until it settles down?

Apparently the proper method instructed by Mitsubishi states that they've to be solid but most folk say that's daft......
