Is there any solution to the ticking lifter on a Northstar? Mine seems to get louder if the engine is hot from like sitting in traffic for a while. Could oil pressure be dropping?

Thanks

are you using synthetic oil? I changed from dino oil to Mobile synthetic oil in another car and it made the lifters tick. I know of 2 other peope that had the same results.

No, I'm still using dino oil. I'm thinking about putting an oil pressure and a temp gauge temporarily to see what the engine is doing. The digital dash doesn't tell me anything.

Thanks

If the oil pressure drops too low you'll get a message to stop the engine.
