I drive a 6 cylinder Chrysler New Yorker. One morning I went to start my car and it had a loud ticking noise. I spoke with my neighbors who are mechanics and they said it sounds like a lifter problem. One guy suggested draining all the oil, filling it up with kerosene, letting it run for 30 min, then draining the kerosene, and finally putting in new oil. Is this sound advice? I don't want to blow up my car at this point. Should I just replace the lifters? Thanks in advance for your advise.
have the same problem?
