How do you make engine valve tapping stop?
I was told my oil level was low, and even after an oil change and normal oil levels, it still mak the tapping noise. Is there anything I can do (short of a new engine) that will make the tapping noise stop???
Bummer deal... While lots of fans offer ideas to help you, they are not up on the facts of the problem that is causing your worry about the best way of ending your engine valve tap.
Some suggested an oil change is the answer.
The reason fresh oil didn't end your noise is because oil is an accomplish to the problem. Just check disassembled motors in any garage. Those motors in for repair all have sludge in them - the cause of your problem. I know, I'm a mechanic.
What mechanic's do to stop your engine valve tapping.
My remedy will fix your dirty engine valve tapping problem.
Here's the point about the cause and its tapping remedy:
With each oil change, a residue build-up is left inside your motor and sticks to your valves - see above picture. Valves are like doors that open and close by mechanical means called lifters, letting fuel in and exhaust out.
Over time, your motors nice clean engine valve area, and the lifters that open and close the valve to make your motor operate quietly and powerfully act up.
They collect a film of dirty, acidic oil residues coat your motors pistons, valves and lifters surfaces. And in your transmission, too! These acid loaded oil residues are choking every motor part causing your tap.
This picture at the right shows the dirty condition of valves and the cause of their tapping - called blow-by. Not shown are the lifters that operate them, and also caused tapping when dirty. These residues from oil breakdown and blow-by do not drain out when the dirty oil is changed.
People sell cheaper additives at part stores, but beware of part store, and quick lube's promoting valve additives as, quick engine flush additives. More damage can result, not the fix you need.

My valve tap remedy!
we call a valve lifter, which has to fall, creating a space. The same with residues on valves cause them to close slower - creating a space. The parts hit as they overcome the space with a tap tap tap sound. Also, a rough engine idle maybe, and oil burning results.
Us mechanics will dismantle the top part of your motor and replace your valves and valve lifters after steam cleaning your motor, for $2000, more or less, to end the tapping.
Additives from part stores and quick lubes - which have solvents, have been a rinse out way to remove sludge - in hopes of preventing, or end valve tap. They don't! Remember...
Those product labels tell you they are harmful to your engine and strict time limits for their presence in the engine is given. Does that sound safe? Its not!
So if chosen, remember the warning is because as solvent motor flushes do clean, they also strip the lube film off your pistons, bearings, valves and gears - if added to your transmission. That is not good, and the damage of those part store and quick lube engine flushes, many car owners discovered.
