Re: Lifter Noise Fix- what else to do?
I have had the same issue for 73000 miles on my 2007 GMC. I have owned it since new and have done mostly synthetic oil changes no more than 5k. Sounds like one lifter bleeds down and taps for less than a minute. Drives me crazy. It bleeding down and the roller are two different things. So I have left it alone. If you feel you want to do it and are pulling the heads I would have to say also address tuning up your heads. Your at the mileage alot of valve springs have broken. I would check your wear and at a minimum put '04 springs in and new rollers then. Good luck.
