It's relatively easy to check/adjust your valve clearance. Thenwe won't have to guess about whether that's it.

Semantics... It doesn't haveHYDRAULIC lifters. The 'lifters' are the rockers that push down the valve stems.

ORIGINAL: 1slowaccord

94 accord 2.2 vtec.

dont know for sure but think and was told it was a lifter ticking. when the car is idling i can hear a tick tick tick. not overly loud, but definetly noticable. seems to go away / fade out when throttle is given ( sitting still and driving ). is this something to worry about? is it a lifter? common honda thing? car has 134,000 miles

thanks for any info
This may simply be normal noise for an Accord of that year, and I don't mean due to wear for all those years. It may very well have sounded that way when it was brand new.

At the end of 1991, I went to various dealers to help my wife pick a new car. We checked out the Camry andAltima, too. Our Accord was by farthe noisiest of the three and remains that way to this day. Compared to the quietness ofsome of today's new engines, one might think it's a diesel! The interesting thing is that our noisycar might very well out-liveall of those new cars with their fancy, hi-tech, fuel-efficient, EXPENSIVE engines.
