Was the oil control solenoid checked for metal fragments when the lifter wiped out the cam, sounds like lower end damage, milky oil means antifreeze in oil!!!

Will be very interested to hear the outcome of this and what the shop has to say for themselves.
So the shop has it and called them about it, so they said they didn’t find any water in the oil “new oil that I’ve changed” so there doing a compression test in the radiator for confirmation of a leak. Then I mentioned the tick and how it only comes when the oil temp is about 180-200 and soon as you rev it just the slightest it disappears. They told me that’s an exhaust leak, and they’ll make sure all the bolts are tight. I highly doubt it’s an exhaust leak my opinion.

I'm sorry but that sounds more like a knock to me .. Like a Rod bearing. BUT WHAT DOES THE MECHANIC that did the Lifter replacement say about it.
They said it’s an exhaust leak and that they’ll make sure all bolts are tighten down lol….

That Shop is hoping its just a loose bolt that they did not tighten properly.
Not a broken bolt.

None of that changes the oil looking so poorly issue.
When you get it back and everything is 'Good to Go', take it out for a drive.
Put about 50 miles or so on it, then change the oil.
If the oil looks good, then wait about 300 miles for an oil change.

If everything still looks good, then it was probably simply nothing more than the shop is inept and did not properly flush the engine AFTER they replaced the cam & Lifters.
Which, in & of itself, would scare the crap out of me, regarding the quality of their workmanship.

That Shop is hoping its just a loose bolt they did not titghten properly, in the fist palce, and not abroken bolt the btu none of that changes the oil idiscolouration issue.
Drive it another 50 miles adn pull the oil again. f no bad, go 100 to 200 miles then change it again.

could be the shop jsut did not proerply flush out the engine after teh replaced the cam, which , in and of itself, would scare teh crap out of me, regardign teh wuality of their workmanship.

a P H O N E ?

I must take exception.
Those Hieroglyphs were made, using an ergonomic keyboard, connected to a desktop monitor, with the biggest darn monitor I can fit inside my Desks upper Hutch.
If I had ever used a smart phone for Posting here, the spelling would look like it came from a Drunk, texting on a Ship, during a Typhoon.

A P H O N E?

I turn my phone 'on' to make calls.
If ya ain't in my address book, it will not ring.
Not only that but it not make any noise, at all, unless someone from my address book, calls me.

texts?
Nope. No Noise, what-so-ever.
If ya can't be bothered to call, I can't be bothered to give two craps that you texted.

I have a smart phone, SOLELY so I can use NWS RADAR
Google it.

Put it on your homepage or whatever they call that screen on your phone when you bring it out of sleep mode.
It has saved my life, many times.

Middle of the Lake, "Oh, what's that? Look at those Clouds. Looks Bad. Think we should head to the boat ramp?"
No longer.

Now, we can sit and watch all the nervous Nelleys leave and catch their fish too.
or
We are the first ones, with our boat loaded up and pulling out of the water, as they all come hauling **** to the dock.

Use my Phone to see a website page?
Oh, he!! no.
Try to type on my Phone?
You see how bad I do when I use a Big honking keyboard.

See, when I was in High School, only Girls took Typing.
Couple guys tried to take Typing because, well, Girls took typing.
They even signed up for it but the Typing teacher made it plain, they were not getting into her class.
Though I do think there was boy, that took it, but he wasn't really a 'Boy'.
Super Nice Kid, never got any Grief, from anyone, but he was a different kid of guy.
Took P.E. with the Girls too.
Lucky bass-****


Now, I am self taught Typist.
Which means I got 2 fingers, T W O, that know how to type.
One of them is usually digging for treasure
OR
Making sure that skid mark, on my underwear, is good and brown, by digging in.

So, now, you know.



probably too much



EDIT:
I would like to point out. I took Time, made extra effort, even went back and proofed read it about 9,087,678 times, in oreder to present a clearn and concise replay, that based on this sites timer, took me exactly 31 minutes to create. EVEN with the Errors you see.


31 minutes, which, for me, seemed an Eternity.
'Darn fingers are sore,my knuckle joints are throbbing and, worst of all,
my Butt feels squishy because I've been farting and not wiping the extra fuel on my SKID MARK!
