How much does it cost to fix a lifter tick?
Lifter tick is not always caused by a faulty lifter.
Replacing the lifters on an old vehicle is not necessarily a bad idea, but it’s not a freebie.
A single replacement lifter will run you $6-10, but a V8 takes 16 lifters, and it will cost you at least a couple hundred to have an honest mechanic do the labor.
Is lifter tick bad?
The lifter tick that they are producing can vary. It can last from just a few moments to the full time of a motor running. The noise that a faulty lifter can produce is usually just simple ticking or tapping, but when it happens constantly, it can be really annoying.

Will lifter noise go away?
Once you change the oil, let the car run for a half-hour or so to help the oil work its way through the system. If the lifter noise was from an oil problem, you should find it goes away after you do this. If this does not resolve the problem, try again to see if you have a parts issue.
