    Is this lifter tick?

    Just happened this afternoon when I turned the car on.



    Is it lifter tick?


    Also, posted this on 3si twenty minutes ago and haven't gotten a response, which is pretty slow for what I've noticed. No one even viewing the forum Looks like this place is having quite the take over.

    Could possibly be a throwout bearing. Does it go away when you push in the clutch?

    I will go check in a minute, I think it is still there whether the clutch is depressed or not.

    That's basically what mine sounds like but I have '99 lifters so I don't understand it. Sometimes mine goes away and sometimes its worse than other days.

    There is definitely lifter tick present. Doesn't sound like anything worse but a video isn't as good as being there. I wouldn't worry. Is everything else fine? Like oil pressure.

    That's what pisses me off, I have 99 lifters too. It only started happening today.

    Yeah, everything is great. I haven't let it warm up to operating temperature yet because I was afraid to, but oil pressure/temp is normal, water temp is normal, etc etc.
