My I love my Audi, but the engine seems to tick loudly when i first start it up.... im sure its the lifters, but not too sure..... what else do you have to replace when you do the lifters, cam too?

The hydraulic lifters start to stick with age & the general fix would be to replace them. Though I'm not aware that you have to do anything else regards the cam?

Some people are against this but I did an engine flush during the course of an oil change on my old 90 & added an upper cylinder lube to the new oil & this seemed to cure a permanently stuck lifter. Best to avoid these engine flushes if servicing has been patchy or non existant so they say.
