Question about 1997 Mercury Tracer
Lifters where sticking cleaned them and put rocker arms on they are staying tight but now the engine shakes really bad.
If this is a 1.9 ltr you need to remove and compress all the lifters they are too tight and are holding the valves partialy open if this is a mazda engine simply adjust the valves if the lifters are pumped up

There are many possibilities. If you can get to an Autozone, Advance autoparts, or Oreilys store they will scan it for free. Once you have a Code number you can get parts for it or shop around for your best price on repairs.
Check your oil level, and water in case that is the cause for the repair light. Make sure you are seeing the check engine light and not an ABS or Brake warning. Shaking with the ABS or Brake light would mean the car should not be driven before inspecting.

This car has hydraulic lifters( tappets} therefore should not adjustment, you probably have a bad or weak lifter. But, in any case you have to remove the valve covers to make the adjustment. You will see the adjustable bolt on the rocker arm. rotate the engine until the valve is all the way to the top, [no tension on the valve spring] then place a feeler Gage in between the rocker arm and the valve stem, adjust the rocker arm until the feeler Gage is snug but not tight. Do this with each valve. Check the book for the correct Gage to use but I think it is a .018.
