LIFTER NOISE

2002 Chevrolet Camaro • 143,000 miles

I own a 2002 v6 3.8 liter Camaro it has a ticking noise that comes from the driver side cylinder head I can pin point the noise and were its coming from and its horrifically loud on a cold start but quits down when warm I'm not sure if its a lifter or rocker?

It accelerates as I push on the gas I have tried lucas but nothing else and no codes are being thrown from the computer?

Great site, I love it : -)

Could be a valve lifter problem-try engine flush, oil and filter change and see what happens
