Mopar Action On-line – Tech Questions


Tech Question

Dave Darke, Cambridge, ON Canada, 1973 Plymouth Barracuda 340

I started up my car for the first time since the winter months and it seems that I now have a ticking sound like a sticking lifter.
Is there something I can do to get rid of this ticking? Is it an exhaustleak possibly?
Thanks, Dave

Dave-

Lifter noise does not vary with load or throttle angle, an exhaust leakdoes.

Sickly lifters can sometimes be freed up with an additive (Marvel MysteryOil, etc.) A single-cyl exhaust leak, however (broken stud in head, warpedmanifold, etc.) requires actual wrench-twisting.
