Lifters on your engine are non-adjustable. If noise is not loud or is intermittent, sometimes just changing oil and using an additive like marvel oil will clean it up.If noise persists, check pivot contact points on "bridge" that connects each pair of rocker arms together for wear.Replace if worn. disable the ignition system and have someone crank engine over. Observe that all rockers are going up and down the same distance. The ones to check are the ones that are not. If all is ok there, you must go deeper into engine and check lifters for end wear. If you find wear, lifter and camshaft must be replaced Sometimes if the ends are still in good condition, the lifter itself may have an internal problem.If that is the case, replace the lifter.
Before you begin, check oil pressure. A pressure of 15lbs or less is not acceptable.(warmed up, at idle) Pressure must be substantially higher both cold and hot. I recommend at least 30psi at idle hot, 40psi while driving. Lower pressures indicate serious wear on internal bearing surfaces. Replacing the oil pump may temporarily hide this problem but will not cure it!!!
Good luck

Hearing noise from my engine of a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

well either your lucky and you have an exhaust leak (very common on the 4.0 jeep engines) or you have a collapsed lifter, bad wristpin,spun bearing...and other assorted bad mojo.. if it is a 4.0 its very common for them to have exhaust leaks due to the long cast iron manifold. its also common for them to have noisey lifters once they get up there in millage. i have a 2000 jeep and the lifters on it have been making noise for about 40 thousand miles and i havnt had any issues with it. just went to a slightly thicker grade of oil. hope this helps

Noisey lifters

Hydrolic self ajusting is cloged. For the tappets. you must do a good engine oil flush to wash out the internalsludge. Costco and walmart have internal engine back flushes this will breath new life into your engine as well as restore lost housepower due to sludge build up.

Broken front coil spring

There were a lot of differences between a 98 TJ (Wrangler) and a 95 ZJ (Grand Cherokee). The grand cherokee is much heavier. Now might be the time for those "Off Road" upgrades you've been waiting on. And it is a good excuse.
Have a nice day!
