2003 Toyota Camry Q&A
2003 Toyota Camry Question: mechanic says lifters knock engine needs replace.Is that true?
no pull valve cover and have valves adj 1st then see if knock or noise goes away - globalhelper
Replace defective lifters , if that is in fact the cause of the noise. If the shop is recommending replacing the engine due to faulty/worn out lifters ONLY , then I would look for another shop .The lifters in that engine are maybe shim-type? - ziptie12
Sure it's not the timing chain?? - pushrod
