AUDI A4 2.8L -lifters
lifters at first startup in the morning? It seems
like the colder the weather the more clickety-clack
click click click type noise my lifters make. The
noise gradually disappears within 10-30 seconds. I
am told by my "authorized Audi Dealer" that lifter
noise is normal in SOME (not all) high compression
engines as it takes time for the oil to pump up to
the lifters. FRANKLY, I don't buy it. I cannot
believe that any metal against metal noise due to
temporary non-lubrication of internal parts is good
Any other A4 owners experience this? Are you
living with it or has it been resolved? Any input
from anyone with experience or engineering
experience with this problem is appreciated.
