Tappety Engine 5Efe

Recommended Posts

My engine sounds a little tappety. Are 5efe engines hydrolic or shimmed tappets? Do i need to have the head re shimmed or do I need to do an Oil change and use a thicker grade Oil. I currently use 10w40 semi synth Mobil super s.

:)

the head is shimmed, non hydraulic. the Oil doesn't seem to be too far out, might want to go for 5w40 though, dependent on temperature local to you.
