Sticking, clicking valve lifters
When I bought my 5000cstq my prebuy check mechanic told me that clicking
valve lifters were 'normal' for audis. Not to worry. So I haven't but
the recent thread has got me started. Two questions:(1) how loud before I
start to worry; and (2) do I have solid or hydraulic lifters?
Another recent post on getting the underside washed, someone, I
think Phil, said that there is a negative pressure in crankcase and that
this can pull in water instead of air. Is this true of my model as well?
