DOHC engines have 24 lifters. Lifters, also known as "lash adjusters", come in 2 important varieties: Pre-1999 Lifters and 1999 (3rd Generation) Lifters.

Pre-1999 Lifters[edit]

These lifters cause a common problem known as "lifter tick". An incessant, yet generally harmless ticking from the engine bay.

These lifters are a common drop-in upgrade for the pre-99 DOHC engines.
