I had a lifter tick and asked the shop to do a valve adjustment. Upon opening the cover, they showed me that the noise was due to a rusty cam lobe. They recommended engine replacement, since they said that to do the job right, they would have to replace both cams (even though only one lobe was problematic) and that a replacement would be the same money.
The engine is now going through vetch valves every nine months, mechanic says they break due to low oil pressure as a result of engine wear and age, even though oil pressure tests within spec.
What do you guys think?
have the same problem?
