Engine Ticking sound

Hi everyone,
I have this problem with two Legends that own. The first was a 1987 Acura Legend. At 175,000 miles suddenly the engine would make a ticking sound like noisy lifters. It would come and go. I checked the oil pressure and it was fine. I then bought a 1994 Legend. It was fine for a while but then the noisy lifter sound developed. Some days the engine sounds beautiful but periodically it gets really noisy. Has anyone had this problem with there Legend? Let me know if you have and if you have the fix let me know. Thanks. Jason

Is the ticking at all speeds or at a certain rpm?

Have you used xW40 or xW50 weight engine oil to cure lifter tick?

my other legend had this problem. it sounded like some old POS cavalier when you got to about 3k rpm. thats why i would drive really slow to keep it quiet. lol the only time i would gas it more is if i floored it, the engine drowned out all the noise at WOT. now theres nothing you can do about it unless you pretty much tear apart half the engine.

I don't think the G2 3.2L engines have the same noise issues with lifters as the G1 engine.

use 10w30 instead of 5w30 and see if it goes away. Dont first gen legends have adjustable tappets or am i mistaken about that?

you need to adjust your valve lash or is that all hydraulicaly controled but its supposed to be done every 20-30,0000 miles

The exhaust side on G1's is adjustable.

I HATE the lifter ticking noise. Even if you have a nice looking G1 and when you start it up it makes that noise, you just feel like hiding LOL.

Was never able to get it to go away on our '90. Came with age (at around 140k). After it warmed up it didn't make the noise anymore.
