You are not letting them bleed down.

The lifters will stay "pumped" for some time after the engine is first started. Sometimes its so bad the engine won't start (if fully pumped). If the engine won't start, you can cycle the engine by hand and compress the valve springs and let it sit for a time and they will bleed down (a couple at a time then turn 1/4 turn or so and wait again), but the easiest way is to run the engine at zero lash and tighten the rockers to spec. (one CYLINDER at a time) and let the other cylinders run until the miss goes away. When the miss goes away that cylinder will be at adjusted zero and you can move to the next cylinder. The thinner the oil the faster it will stabilize (which means engine hot).

If the engine will start at adjusted (but pumped up) lash, just let it run. It could take up to 30 minutes for the lifters to leak down.

Lastly, you can pull the lifters out, remove the snap rings, remove the plungers and drain the oil. Reassemble the engine with "dry" lifters, adjust them static (engine off) then start the engine. After the engine warms up they should fill with oil and run normally.

If you don't know how to do any of this, you probably shouldn't be in there to begin with. If you adjust them incorrectly you can damage your engine.

Some engines have no adjustment and those you just have to wait to stabilize. If they won't start, you turn them by hand and let them bleed down.

Ford valves are not adjustable, something is wrong. There are oversized pushrods that can be installed, but something is wrong to have valve noise, unless they backed off, somehow.

The sequence and the torque values can be had via a Chilton's manual or Haynes manual.

I have searched for these values, but the sites always make reference to the manuals.
Average price of a manual can be from $5.95 to $25.

How can you adjust the lifters 1993 ford festiva


this car uses hydraulic lifters. If your lifter is tapping, make sure the nut is tight on the rocker arm. If it still taps, the lifter has failed and must be replaced.

Fair Price for fuel pump and filter replacement on 96 Ford Explor


the labor manual for a 1996 explorer fuel pump gives you 2.1 hours, if you figure in a labor rate of $65 dollars per hour your at $136.50 the cost of the pump is 141.49 is advanced auto price for the average person, list is 219.39 which is what most shops charge so by my figures based on what my shop would charge you should be some where between $300 to $400 depending on there labor rate and i did price the most expensive pump that advanced auto sells for that model so i would say there bill was way to high.
