Increased lifter sound after I had water pump replaced.

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle ever overheated? And when was it last serviced?

It has gotten hot when water pump went out... bot not undriveable

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Chrysler?

2002 300m special, 145K mikes

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Special yourself? What have you tried so far?

Rebuilt transmission wasa followed closely by water pump followed by this problem. tranny rebuild suspect of just being shift solenoid replacement cuz car still has shift anomolie(?) after rebuild. same guy did all

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Is there a way this could be purposely caused, this lifter/valve screech / knock?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the noise is truly from the lifters and you don't have an oil pressure or sludge issue then most likely the valvetrain actuator assemblies, or at least the one on the bank making the noise, will need to be replaced.

Can you describe the noise and how it was determined that the noise is from the lifters?

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.

TOM WHITTAKERUSA
