View Full Version : RE Noisy Lifter?? - follow-up!

Took the car to my local SVT dealer. Apparently this has become a rather common complaint. Ford had a "service bulletin" issued. Something to do with the Cam "stands".....and re-torqueing. Picking up the car this afternoon. I'll try to get more info.

Note for others: The sound was too high pitched to be piston slap, and too metalic to be a gasket leak of any kind. It sounded exactly like a noisy lifter in an OHV engine.
