On the oil topic. My first few oil changes I used penrite 15w40 and the car just ate it up and leaked like a siv.
A few changes later I decided to go nulon 15w40. Man. So much smoother. Quieter. DOSNT LEAK. Like at all.
And its cheaper.
Win win.

Hi frd906n...
i had the same problem with my NC FAIRLANE with the 4.0L engine. i thought it was the oil pump which was f&%cked...but then i removed the inspection plate for the transmission (where the bell housing bolts to the rear of the motor) & found out that one of the Torque Converter Bolts was VERY loose!!!

Have a look @ those first before doing what i did, & remove the whole engine out. lol
PS: Let me know how u go!


Hmm very interesting mate, i will get my mech to check them out when he does the transmission service next weekend

Yea ... firstly i thought they were my hydraulic lifters that were stuffed. So i replaced em & got brand new ones. Weren't cheap! But about 2 days after i put the new lifters in, the ticking noise started again. Until i decided to rebuild the entire engine...thats when i found it was the torque converter bolts which were loose.

Did a oil change today, the lifter treatment defintly cleaned out the bowls of the engine as it was black as, i put some 15w 40 penrite oil in tonight, and a new filter, will wait during the week to see how it goes, as the lifters are bit noisey, if it dosent improve in the next 5000km, ill try thicker oil and in the long run, new lifters will be installed

Ahh ok. Fair enough. Well the lifters only cost me $100 for brand new ones...aftermarket though. From Ford, they wanted $70 per lifter...times that by 12...fkn way too much $$$!!! How many kms has the engine done? If its done less than 250,000kms then u should be using 20w50. And Penrite oil is very watery and too thin.

But yea let us know how u go. If u want, i have a 4.0L head sitting in the workshop if u want it. Its got the new lifters in it! It own me $150. If u want it let me know.

Well the noise is still there, after 2 weeks, looks like i will be replacing the lifters, my mech got out his stepthascope and listend to the sump and the bell housing, and the noise isnt comming from there, but at around 1500 revs the lifters are very noisey, so ill replace them with peace of mind, cheers will update when i do
