Question about 1988 Jeep Cherokee
My Jeep is ticking under the hood. We originally thought it was a lifter but after a mechanic replaced the lifters, the injector o-rings, the gaskets and the plugs....the tick is still there. It is a shallow tick that isn't there when idling but when the gas is pressed. It is quite loud when it does tick. The first time I went through this, the ticking was consistently occurring when I was accelerating then a second tick kicked in which was much louder and was ticking all of the time. Now, after replacing the parts noted above I am back to the original tick. Please help me. I waited 4 months to have enough money to pay a mechanic and now the problem is still there but I'm broke.
I had this with my old yj engine take the valve cover off and use a hammer or rod to press down on the rocker arm while running to find the noisy lifter. Also use the wire method as someone else rec. Check the rod bearings also. Mine ended up being the wrist pin in the number 6 cylinder after taking down the trans and removing the head 2 times hope this helps.
