'95 Engine noise, not hardcore question

I tried 4x4wire, search features SUCK!


I've heard of the persistent lifter noises in the earlier 75deg V-6s, but mine's gotten appreciably louder recently and I'm fearing the worst. Anyone have related experiences to share?

Sorry .... no personal knowledge. But it seems that 0w-30 Mobil 1 cures the tick.

The timing belt tensioner is probably on its way out.

First try the 0w-30 Mobil 1 Syn.
That cured my ticking, and it seems to come back just before the 5k oil change. But I never did have a real bad lifter noise.

If that don't work try some Sea Foam, I have heard some people have succes with it.

Last get the lifters reground...

Otherwise sounds like you have a volunteer for a V8 swap

Theres my only $0.02
