My bone stock 02 Z06 has had a noisy lifter at start up forever (75K miles). It starts quietly, but after about a minute a lifter starts a tapping noise. Once it gets a little warm and I rev it a little it quiets down. It seems to me that at some point the lifter may cause more serious problems for me. Do they fail at some point?
If I replaced the lifters at this point, what else should be done while the heads are off?
I am not interested in more power, just reliability and good mileage.
Also, who would you take it to in northern VA?
