A customer brought in their car because they could hear a loud ticking when the engine was running. After diagnosis, it was determined that the roller on one of the ends of the lifters had come apart. This was causing the lifter to ride directly on the camshaft, making the ticking noise.
We ended up pulling the engine so that the engine block could be machined and the lifters replaced.
