Gee, and I just thought that the lifter noise was my "time to change the oil"
reminder...lifter noise in these things is chronic. I had it on my first
4kscq (an 87) with less than 17k miles and was told "normal". I don't let it
bother me...when its real bad, I am always at the end of my oil change
interval (2500 miles) and just change the oil! Prollum goes away! Now, if I
change to synthetic do I loose this oil change reminder "feature"???
