Ok what you can do is run some automatic transmission fluid in the crankcase but I would not let it run for more than a half hour and then I would change it afterwords. Slick 50 does not work but other detergents like Marvel Mystery Oil will work and should subside the rapping or the stuck lifters in about one or two weeks. Your problem is bad valve lash and a stuck lifter will make the tightness of the valve lash to be wron or the torque. Kerosene is an old trick but it's kinda really bad for your motor becuase it drys all of your oil seals in your head and the little grommets inside fuel injectors. If all else fails your going to have to check your camshaft. I wish you the best of luck.

Lifter knocking in my 89 ford ranger


A lifter problem can only be fixed by changing the lifter. You might as well change all of them because it is just as easy since you have already had to take the heads off to get at the noisy lifter. While you are at it, get the heads reconditioned or a valve job. More than likely the oil was not changed as often as it should have been. Dirty oil works like sand paper on the valve stems.

Very common problem, some 2.9L were mechanical lifters that required adjustment, others have trouble with the hydraulic liters being noisy.

Misses when hot also lifters become noisy


The camshaft may be worn or the lifters .that explains the missing when you run it at operating temp.By the description of the oil. the reasomn the canmshaft wore out and the valve lifters is because the oil was not changed on a regular basis.
