hey guys...im gettin this rattling noise coming from the engine...im thinkin that it might b the valves...but im not sure...any suggestion???
yea its near the cap...somewhere around there...it only rattles in the morning, after leaving it undrive....but after u drive it a bit....u dont hear it no more...odd???Probably your hydraulic lifters buddy (very common)
Is it in the middle of the engine (near the oil cap) or closer to the front?
its made in the US????hahaha...i didnt know that...thought it was imported....lol....hmmm....so what store carries these kind of oil then???does BMW dealership have it???whats the price on them?Royal Purple is MADE in the U.S...and 10w-40 is the 'weight' of the oil to use.
You cant buddy (your VANOS does that for you), is more likely to be your lifters and they will need changing if some good oil doesn't stop itI have a tapping noise that is intermittent regardless of temp. most noticeable near idle (probably because engine is quieter and less road noise). I think it's my valves. Should I get them adjusted?
