1996 Plymouth Breeze Q&A

1996 Plymouth Breeze Question: tapping that sounds like a lifter failing

i have loud tapping that deminishes after it warms up but never goes away. thinking its a lifter issue. -
Answer 1
Very common on these engines. Try a thicker oil, or replacing the lifters. Good Luck! -
Answer 2
could be the ideler or timing tensioner -
Answer 3
It is the lifters but a mechanic told me that it is no big deal just an anoying sound.He also said it is common in 4cylinder dodges and plymouths -
Answer 4
thxs, just going to keep driving it. if it goes then it goes. makes more sense to replace the engine when the time comes. -
