Hi all: My 97 Venture with 120k km has recently developed a ticking
which sounds like one of the lifters. Funny thing is the ticking is
absent at start-up and only begins after 10 minutes later. The ticking
will last for about 10 minutes and then stop.
COLD oil - NO ticking,
WARM oil - TICKING,
HOT oil - NO ticking
During the ticking there seems to be a drop in engine power, I guess a
valve not opening.
Have always changed the oil like the good book says.
Have always used Dino juice.
