RE: 1989 Quattro 90 engine Problems - Lifters??
I would definitely do all the lifters while you have the cam out. What kind
of premium are you speaking of? I got (normal?) lifters about a year ago for
$12 US$ each. Of course doing this myself made the job more economical
I also believe the lifters to be very sensitive to the viscosity of oil you
are using as well as the oil level. I use Mobil1 10-30 and the engine is
quiet until I get about 2/3 of a quart low, then it starts to complain.
Hope that helps,
