Search Button <---- that's how ya fix it. :)

(Just kidding, but please, try to use the search button before asking questions, usually you won't have to wait for a reply, and 90% of the time, you can find the answer you're looking for. This has been covered a few million times, so not many people are going to reply.)

Aside from replacing all 24 lifters with '98+ lifters.... not much. People have tried doing everything from seafoam, to ATF, to god only knows what. Seems that certain different brands and types of oil decrease/increase the noise, but It mostly varies depending on how old your engine is, how it was driven... etc. etc. Like I said, doing a search might give you more specific answers.

First of all, i'm the one that told you that. Second I know more then you about 3s cars. 3rd i was looking for a solution were i wouldnt have to replace them to save money. I know replacing them would work best, but its all about the money.

I went to the gathering on the 14, I had the black 95 VR-4 with the 99 side panels (parked next to the real 99) with the Wilwood front calipers.

I got some stuff this weekend and ran it through before I changed my oil and filter. I can't remember what it is called but it is in a silver can (about the size of a small paint can) and my tick decreased significantly. I can still hear a tick but it sounds like any other car. B-12 Chemtool is also good.

All you do it add it to your crank case and let it run for about 5 minuts and then change your oil AND you filter***This is a must if you add an additive like this***

I cured mine with ATF and Rislone, alongside conventional oil. It's gone and hasn't been around in almost 2 years. It used to be LOUD like a diesel truck.

Hey, would you explain in the detail the process of how you added ATF and Rislone? I mean did you do both at the same time or alternate between oil changes or what?

THANKS!!!!
