Hello, I have a 2000 Chrysler Concorde with a 2.7 engine. It has a top end tapping witch sounds like some of the lifters are not pumping any oil. I've experienced this exact problem with the previous 2.7 engine I replaced with this one.I kick myself in the but with this motor because I bought it used and it only had a 30 day warranty and I installed it after the warranty was up. Reason being was I tried to repair the previous 2.7 by replacing 8 lifters, 4 on each head towards the front of the engine.I first soaked them in oil for 48 hrs. Before I installed them. I started the engine and it sounded worse, so I trough in the towel and installed the other. Which had a lite tap on& off. What can I do to fix it and what did I do wrong? THANK YOU IN ADVANCE.
