noisy lifter? replace it!
just wanted to say that i tried the "magic" juice you put in the engine to try and quiet noisy lifters. tried the XR1 for $11.44. thought it quieted it some and ran for a few hundred miles- didn't fix as i would have bet on.
so i dropped in 12 new lifters and fixed that little prob. took me 2 days. the hardest part was getting to all the exhaust/intake manifold bolts. who designed that mess?
moral: don't waste your money on the magic stuff- breakdown and do it right. only $2.69 a lifter plus $17 for head gasket and $12 for manifold gaskets.
