It worked! I switched to 5w30 and did the trany oil thing only once. Gradually over a few weeks( I don't drive it very much) the ticking became less and less. And now,( horray!) its completely gone.

I followed the method given at legend temple as closely as I could. I think they said about 20km although I probably went at least double that. I first tryed adjusting them but that did nothing.

I screwed up and put in 10w-40 on my last change, and Yes it does make a difference. My lifters have gotten noticably louder and it seems to take longer for them to quiet down. Changing back to 5w-30 today.:eek:

Someone answered this before, but the answer wasnt clear to me.

I just recetly had an oil change. Can I add a quart of ATF now? If so, then what? And what type of ATF fluid, specifically? Don't want to ruin my engine.

CSAMOS2.... DO NOT use the ATF until you are ready to do your next oil change...You should not be going too far with the ATF in there... 20 miles max.... It will really clean the engine out, but does not have the same lubricity as motor oil....
