Exclamation Sticky Tappets

Hi, I have a suzuki Alto 4cyl. on Cyl.#1 the two tappets are very hard move but the other 6 are fine. I have found that when the engine is cold they make a load 'tapping' noise but when the oil pressure gets up it's ok.

Any one have any idea on how to loosen the two stiff tappets??

Thanks in advance.

You should remove them and look for the cause of the sticking,varnish buildup or scoring from oil starvation and proceed from there.You might be able to clean the contact areas or replace the 2 problem ones.
