Hi all , can the lifters be removed from a L77 with out taking heads off ?
No. All LSx type engines have to have the heads off to remove the lifters and buckets.
My engine is stock done 82000klm in a 2013 calais . Are these lifters as bad as i have been reading ?
No, not in the L77's.
The bad reputation came from the original lifters fitted in the L76's.
Updated, and better lifters were fitted in the L77's.
Thanks for that , so they do not need to be replaced at 100000klm ?
Pretty sure that's not required...
Not really but GM put out a service advice thingy years ago recommending replacing at 100k.
The lifters get noisy if they are going bad, if u don’t have ticking noises (which can be other things too) I wouldn’t be concerned
Just a very very slight one when it is warm on the drivers side , will see what happens in the next oil change .
I have lifter noise when my L77 is cold, and the noise it softens when its get a bit warm,
Where I think I found its on pot 4 or 6, got the old Mechanics Stethoscope out, and its noisy around that area.
I may need to change them, but didn't really want to take the heads off.
However, it is due for an oil change, as its coming up to hit 150K/m mark this week,
Will see how it sounds after new oil in it, 5w 30 recommended,
I heard the filter under the oil sensor [at the rear of the Valley Cover] should be cleaned/replaced at some point, is that correct ?, if so, at what K/M ?,
if so, probably just as easy to purchase a new one and swap it.
As per the Ebay
