There are no Lifters in the Dual Overhead Cam Motors. Once these 2.4 Liters start Tapping, It is just a Matter of time Before they Stop. I had to Replace one not very long ago for a Customer with the Same Problem. Please Rate my Solution, I need all the Help that I can Get! Thanks!

The crankshaft gear has a triangle timing mark on it. On the outside of the gear near the teeth. This points straight down, and lines up with a notch, on the bottom of the rear timing cover.
The camshafts have a mark on the outside of the gear, near the teeth. The camshafts are turned, so that the marks are to the inside, (in-between the gears), and the marks point to each other.

Install the cam sprocket, timing chain, and timing chain cover. Make sure the dot on the crankshaft gear is pointing towards the center of the Camshaft gear bolt. Make sure the hole in the Camshaft gear is pointing towards the center of the crankshaft. Be sure to remove the nail holding the chain tensoner back, before installing the timing cover The round hole in the cam gear is the alignment mark

Testimonial: "worked, car is running great now, timing jumped 3 teeth"
Sounds like a 2.4 Quad four engine? If so the chain has either different colored links marked links that have to be aligned with the marks on the cam gear[s] and the crank gear.A chiltons book will show you how.

Your Timing Chain Tensioner is located in the Lower Front of your engine.
#1) you'll have to disconnect your negative Battery cable.
#2) Remove the Top Engine cover to give you better access to the Front of Engine.
#3) Then you'll need to remove your alternator and with wiring attached put it off to the Side you might have to tie it with a wire to secure it.
#4) then you'll need to remove your Power Steering Leave the Lines on it and Put it to the sideas well , Tie off if necessary.
#5) then Jack up the front of your car,make sure you Put Good Stands under the car to keep it secure.while you work under it.
#6) then remove the TWO front Oil Pan Bolts Only the very 2-Front ones.
#7) Then directly above the Oil pan front of the Engine you'll see your Crank Shaft Pulley Remove it, You will need a Puller to Remove it.then the Timing Chain Cover, There are Several bolts Holding it on to the front of the Engine.
#8) Remove ALL the Bolts on Timing over, then Take cover Off,It could be a Little Stubborn ,if All bolts are out for sure, Take a Small plastic mallet and Tap the Cover Easily,until it comes off.
#9) Now before you remove anything else there is a Timing Mark on the Cam Shaft and one on the Crank Shaft,NOTE: BESURE you line them marks up,The Cam Shaft Mark should be pointing Straight Down--And the Crankshaft Mark needs to be Pointing Straight up.and Lined up with the Top Timing Mark.If the are Not
NOTE: Rotate the Engine by Hand Turning the Sprockets until they are LINED Up.
Then Take off the Top Cam Shaft Mounting Bolts,then Pull Sproket and timing Chain at the Same Time.
Then Loosen the Chain Tensioner Bolt with out taking it ALL the Way OUT. then remove your Chain Tensioner.
If your this far i Recommend that you Replace The Timing Chain,Cam Sproket and Crankshaft Sproket as well.
If not the Install your new Chain Tensioner,And Just Simply Reverse the Un-Install Directions.To Put All back Together.
Do Replace the Timing Cover Seal. Using Proper Seal Remover and Installer.
Also before you put your Timing cover back on CLEAN the Surfaces of the Engine and the Cover.And Use a Gasket Sealer and Mount to Block ==Lining Up ALL your Timing Cover Bolt Holes. Let it set a Short time a Few Minutes at Least. To prevent Slipping when installing your Timing Case Cover.
1- Last Thing Torque your Timing Chain Tensioner at 89 Inch Pounds.Which rewuires a Torque Wrench.
And Torque ALL your Timing Cover Bolts at 97 Inch Pounds.Do NOT Over Tighten You'll Strip them.
MAKE Sure the Timing Marks are Still lined up.
This will get your Timing Chain Tensioner Replaced. Thanks for using FixYa From: d_hubbs

The diagram in the manuals should show the timing marks on both cam gears to be on the blue timing chain links.
