2005 3.3 L stuck lifter

I'm pretty sure this is an overhead cam engine. More than likely, the cam lobe is worn down ,or the rocker arm is worn down, or the valve is worn down. The oil pump may be going also and not supplying enough pressure .

Replacing water pump for a 2003 Chrysler sebring 4 cylinder

I don't think the single overhead cam engine pump is driven by the timing belt, but the double overhead cam engine is.
Both are on the passenger side in the middle of the block.

99 pontiac grand am se series 3400 liter motor i need to replace the water pump do you have to take the timing chain cover off to it looks like its all connected together

go to the library and get a book for your car with the motor you have in it.this should be a (sohc)single overhead cam motor and not the (dohc)dual overhead cam motor.the sohc motor the pump is located at the rad side of the motor and doesn`t need to have the timing cover removed.if it happens to be the dohc motor then your best to have a shop do the job as its not an easy job to do

this should be a (sohc)single overhead cam motor.this pump is located at the front of the motor towards the rad.thus you don`t remove the timing cover and easy to replace,once you remove the serpintine belt then the pulley on the pump then there are about 6 bolts that you remove to change the pump.if its the (dohc)motor i strongly suggest you have a shop do the job as its not an easy job to do and if you don`t get the timing belts timed exactly you will be sending the heads to the machine shop to repair.

91 Honda civic is leaking oil from a sensor located on the head is not the oil sensor the location of this sensor is on the left side of the head facing the fire wall

If the engine has an overhead cam it could be the cam position sensor.If the threads are leaking remove it wrap teflon tape on the threads and re-install it. If oil is leaking threw the sensor replace it.

I have a bmw 1992 model which is not getting oil to the overhead cam

your pump could have failed,if so the oil light would appear, if it is off then remove the valve cover and inspect the oil delivery line as it may be plugged up, you can clean it out with an air blower

Hearing a ticking and a friend of mine said that some chryster just do that is that true am worried its the motor

the ticking on a 1995 with solid lifters or overhead cam design is likely caused by out of adjustment valve lifters. Not sure of milage, but common on high milage cars and especially those with an overhead cam or solid (not oil filled) hydralic lifters. I believe those models had an overhead cam.....Its a DIY job if you're comfortable performing the adjustment and have the tools to measure the gaps.

Timing gear set

That is a dual overhead cam engine. On the oil pump housing there is an arrow cast into the housing. Line the arrow on the crank pulley up with the arrow on the oil pump housing, that will set your crankshaft in time. Next you'll need to set your camshafts. This is the procedure for doing that......the exhaust cam gear (nearest the firewall) has markings on it that say "2.4L" on one side and "up^" on the other side. On the left side of the gear is a notch on the tooth. This notch MUST be set at 3:30 and the intake cam at EXACTLY 9:00. Once you've installed the timing belt and you rotate the tensioner to "tighten", the offsetting of the exhaust cam will match up with the intake cam. And presto!!! your timing is now set. Make sure you turn the crank sprocket TWO complete revolutions and verify your timing marks.

1987 Subaru GL Oil Pump location

Assuming the car has the 1.8 engine, the oil pump is on the front of the motor, behind the timing belt covers. The belts have to come off to change the oil pump. If you are a novice, this is a difficult task. If you usually fix your own stuff, then it is not so bad. Just be sure to replace both belts while you are at it, and be sure to get them set right. If it is the 1.8, one belt drives one cam, and the other drives the other cam, the oil pump, the distributor, and maybe also the water pump....It's been 10 years since I had mine. Good luck
