Sounds like a engine tear-down is in order, these are serious internal problems.

2001 GMC Sonoma 4 cyl. 2wd. Shakes hard, makes noise, bogs down. Not timing chain replace it little over a year ago.


The code doesn't tell you what to replace just that the computer thinks there is a problem on that system. Did you check sensor wiring circuits? Black wire should be ground--gray wire--ref voltage about 5 volts. The lite green wire signal to computer. The map sensor also needs vacuum.
Use a digital multimeter on signal wire, engine idling. What is the reading? Just for comparison, at idle the tps and map signals should be close to the same reading, won't be exact. If several volt difference that isn't right. In my opinion.

4.7 dodge durango extremly loud lifter noise with low power from engine. replaced all 8 lifters on driver side and spark plugs replaced. still loud noise and runs real rough. cant even drive it like it is....


1. You have to replace the lifters on both sides. Can't just do one.
2. Use a compression tester screwed in at #1 cyl. crank engine and adjust in and ext for #1 to get 120psi. Then on to the next. Note pull all plugs b4 you start

3. reinstall plugs now it will start and no lifter noise
4. you fuel is fine don't pull anymore wires.

My 2ltr V6 Vitara has a rattle. Top End noise, it rattles like noisy tappets on start up and gets less as the engine warms up (around five minutes) then it almost stops. So far I have pulled the rocker...


this is not SOLIDS engine, there is no LASH setting, !
the engine has a chain, and a set of hydraulic bucket valve lifters.
the chain can be bad or any lifter, can be dirty and collalpesd.
when the engine is dead and no oil pressure the lifters are normally collapsed, when you start the engine. oil pressure does 2 things
all lifters pump up, and clearance goes to zero. (no noise)
then the cam tensionor, pumps up (they fail) and chain noise ends.
some noise is ok , cold start, but most end after a minute or 2.
started.

ever read the manual? its here.
use a stethoscope to find out 1 thing , which is it the chain or lifters making that noise.
ive even runs engine with the valve covers off (messy , use a blanket to catch oil flying) to find the true cause.......

read the 2.5L here. its close. (mech. parts)
read the Alldata virtual FSM.

Replace lifter


Lifters are usually replaced in sets with the cam or rods and rockers, replacing just one lifter, rare, but if it is making noise, then just locate the trouble maker, you can run the engine with the rocker cover off, find the bad one, shut of engine, loosen up the rocker, twist it out of the way, pull the rod out, then go in the hole with a piece of heavy wire, rod, steel, with a cut in the bottom to hook on the lip of the lifter, then pull it out. Put it all back, you should be all set.

Noisy lifter in 1999 dodge dakota 2.5l 4 cyl. is cyl. head removal necessary to change ?


No just yet before you go to all that expense and trouble. The lifter may just need cleaning. Go to Advance Auto Parts and purchase a can of Seaform Motor Treatment. This is not an oil additive. This is a fantastic product that just may clean your lifters and stop the noise. Read about it here and watch the video. You put it in the crankcase as per the instructions on the can. You can also get it at other retailers and marine supply stores. http://www.seafoamsales.com/motor-treatment/index.html

1997 nissan pickup 4wd, just had timing chain replaced , now have noticeable knocking noise coming from valve cover ? mechanic says need new stack shims on valve rockers ?


Not likely. You have a 4 cyl engine with over head cam. It has hydrolic lifters. If it wasn't making the noise before he replaced the chain, then its something he did...or didn't do. If it was making the noise before, most common reason would be 1 or more lifters not pumping up. If you have a six cyl, no one changed the timing chain, (It doesn't have one!) The 3.0 6cyl has a belt.

How tight should i tighten the nuts on each lifter on my 1994 4.3 liter engine


For hydrolic lifters turn engine over until both valves on the cyl. your doing are completly closed, if rocker is tight after you do this loosen it until you can wiggle it and then tighten it down until you just can't wiggle it, and then give it another 1/2 to 3/4 of a turn more and thats it, repete this process on the rest of the cyl. and valves and you got it if you still have lifter or rocker noise after you do this find witch one it is and tighten it a little more . If it happens to be solid lifters you will need a feeler guage in thousands and know the setting for each valve, and its the same process except you use the guage between the rocker and top of valve to set the lash.
