just monitor your oil and if you're having healthy consumption every 500 miles and she pulls hard, you should have nothing to worry about. I'm on my 2nd engine after 1st one was replaced under warranty, 1st one had the tick and had bad oil consumption. This 2nd one ALSO has the tick, but pulls stronger than the replaced engine and has healthy oil consumption so far.. so I'm not stressing about it. I'm running full synthetic 5w30 ever since the engine was put together as that's what I requested to my tech who did the engine swap and install. It never touched any other oil besides the 5w30 full synthetic, and it still had the tick after the 1st oil change.
so now I’m getting this weird “taser” like noise, coming from the same spot as the suspected lifter tick came from before I unplugged the oil bypass solenoid.
I’m at a loss. I can’t imagine more oil pressure would cause it. I’ll probably just deal with it for now, I added some ceratec and I’ll hope for the best
I add a bottle after every oil change.As of now, only Ceratec has made the tick go away.
I guess now my question is, should I add Ceratec every oil change?
