    Default REVIEW: Wynns Hydraulic Valve Lifter Treatment

    So i've got a really annoying ticking engine.

    Tried:

    2 oil changes in 2 weeks
    Wynns Injector treatment


    Thought it sounded like Hydraulic Tappets ticking so after reading loads of good reviews, I purchased this:




    Results:

    It's worse than before.


    Don't buy it kids, it's absolute rubbish.


    Anyone got any idea what it is? Or how to cure it? The injector treatment stuff I added to the diesel made it intermittently quieter..
    @PCMALT noticed how bad it is.. it sounds like an old ford!

    Cheers!

    try a bit of two sroke oil in the fuel 300ml. as for that waynns if its made it worse i would drain the oil and try some good ester based oil that stuff clings to every moving part and millers cfs nt is highly rated for ford zetec hydraulic tappets.

    My signum has been ticking/tapping for the last 3 years, seems quite common on high mileage z19dth engines. Doesn't get any worse so I just ignore it.

    Never put any kind of snake oil in the engine - they are usually bad news

    Another oil change required I think, hopefully that will get rid of the snake oil and it'll sound a bit better! About a year ago I changed to a 10w40 full synthetic (Shell Rimula - actually a truck oil!) and its a little quieter than it was on 5w30 oil.

    hmm, there are other possible reasons but the fact the snake oil made it worse suggests it probably is tappet noise. is it something that onset or worsened recently, or a long term issue?
