If the lifters [automotive repair industry term] or hydraulic lash adjusters [actual terminology], which are ment to maintain the correct distance between the valve train components is bleeding off oil within the adjuster, it must be replaced. The only thing that can be done is to replace them. I would suggest replaceing all 24 [dual overhead cam engine type], if you are in there doing that, you may as well replace the valve stem seals as well... and believe me, its alot of work, ive done it..

3.8 dodge runs great but has a very loud ticking/tapping under valve cover gets louder when warmed up or more rpm

Not familiar with this specific engine, but I think you have adjustable rocker arms to adjust valve lash. May just need adjustment, but inspection will show if something is damaged.

92 dodge stealth 3.0 dohc the valves get bent when the timing belt breaks?

it is non-interference. But it's a very close fit and if an engine is excessively carboned up that can be enough to cause interference.

I have a loud ticking noise when I first start the car,after about 10 minutes it begins to quiet down

That sound is one or more valve lifter(s) that is out of adjustment or a clogged rod provided your oil level is correct and the oil is not overly used and dirty. If there are several valve lifters making noise I would tend to believe the oil pressure is too low which could be the oil pump failing.

Overhead valves making noise like they need ajusting

Valve Lash ADJUSTMENT 1.6L Engines NOTE: Measure valve clearance with the engine cold.
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2. Remove the valve cover.
  3. Set the engine to Top Dead Center (TDC) of the compression stroke for the cylinder to be adjusted.
  4. Check the valve clearance. The valve clearance specifications are as follows:
    • Intake valves: 0.005-0.007 inches (0.13-0.17mm)
    • Exhaust valves: 0.005-0.007 inches (0.13-0.17mm)
  5. After adjustment, tighten the locknuts to 11-14 ft. lbs. (15-19 Nm).
  6. Repeat for each valve to be adjusted.
1.8L, 2.0L and 2.5L Engines The 1.8L, 2.0L and 2.5L engines utilize automatic hydraulic lash adjusters to maintain proper valve lash at all times. Periodic valve lash inspection and adjustment is not necessary or possible. prev.gif next.gif

My 1992 dodge stealth rt has a clacking noise from engine when running .we have determine the noise is comming from the lash adjusters.what should we do .

The lash adjusters are hydraulic and will have to be replaced. They can be replaced without removing the head, you just have to remove the necessry intake & parts that restrict your access to removing the valve covers, then remove the rockers (that's where the adjusters are of course), replace the adjusters and reassemble. Make sure you note the direction of everything, once reassembled it should fit exactly as it did before, with a little less slack.

All engine parts like this need oil. Soak the valve lash adjusters in oil overnight before installing, preferably in a warm location, or place a warm light next to the container you put them in, they work like valve lifters, just smaller.

Good luck

Valve adjustment

The EA82 does not use shims. Ticking almost always caused by a failed oil pump to engine block gasket failure. The gasket slowly fails which then allows the oil pump to pump air along with the oil. Replace the "Mickey Mouse" oil pump gasket.
