"My old Falcon work van some mornings, has a lifter rattle. I just turn it off and restart it immediately and MOST times its gone.
The car does have in excess of 800,000 klm on it with a rebuilt once in that time, so ijust deal with it. :-) "
"I would think a misfire could jam a valve or two into its seat possibly damaging the valve train working the valves in that cylinder
Just a TIP - if you car suddenly ---dies at speed in gear--- Do Not Try To start the car until you are at a complete…"

"Did you try to start the car when it died while rolling in gear to the side of the road --that would cause a backfire I blew up a new muffler doing that
