I have a 93 with 115k. When i start it, it will tick, tick, tick, and then stop for a second and then start ticking again. Usually does this until it warms up. I just changed the oil and put in 20w-50, thinking it would quiet it down. Wrong, it made it worse. The ticking doesn't go away. I'm thinking sticky lifter? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Dustin

The lifters are a problem on the 4.0 usually need attention in the 85-100k range. Use thinnner oil may help, or a flush, but most likely the lifter itself is bad and needs replaced. Do a search plenty of hits will show up.

Stevens Parts Dead Link Removed in Tx and Vanir have take outs much cheaper than the dealer.

lifter

I just put new gaskets on my 91 sport and foud that on one of the lifters ( they are roller lifters) was missing a little cotter key. I thought nothing of it and just put it back together(VERY STUPID, DO NOT DO THIS!!!). Now I have to take apart again, because the lifter ticks until it warms. So I think that your problem has to do with the same thing, theey get old and the key falls out or something
