Hi on my 1991 900 16v I have a top end lifter clicking sound that doesn’t go away with the engine heating up and running - it seems to only tick whilst under load in gear not in neutral when I rev the engine. This was a car that didn’t get an oil change for years and had the bad timing chain at just 70,000 miles - I’ve already ran the engine for a couple of 1000km and changes the oil again to full synthetic - no improvement - so I’m thinking damaged lifter

It’s strange because usually when I’ve had valve lifter noise on other Saab’s it’s there regardless of being in drive or neutral - this is only happening under load in gear . Could it be some other component that would click only in gear under load ? Thanks
