When you take them out it's a good idea to keep them in a certian order that you will remember but im guessing that you didnt. its not really a big deal, just put them back in however it shouldnt hurt anything

Lifters/car not starting


Do you have the 2.2 liter Ecotec 4-cylinder engine, the 3.5 liter V6, or the 3.9 liter V6 engine? If you have the 2.2 liter engine, there may be a camshaft/timing chain issue if you skipped a tooth when you put the chain back on the cams. If it's a 3.5 or a 3.9 liter V6, you may have incorrectly installed the push rods back into the engine. 3.5 liter intake push rods are approx 5 3/4" long, while the exhaust push rods are approx 6" long.
The 3.9 liter intake push rods are approx 5.81" long, while the exhaust push rods are approx 6.1" long. If you mix the two lengths up when you put them back in the engine, you're going to have problems.

My car blew the upper intake manifold gasket out so i replaced it and now it is flooding and won`t start


Im not sure what year, make or model car this is, the most common reason for a no start after an intake gasket chage is due to installing push rod in the wrong spot, this is mainly ture on the 3.1 and 3.4 and 2.8 and some other engines, the intake and exhaust push rods are diffrent sizes, i belive the exhaust valve uses a little longer pushrod than the intake, remove the valve cover and remove loosen the rocker arm and pull the first two push rods out, see if they are diffrent sizes, if so then install them in the correct location,let me know the result good day.

I have a 96 pontiac grand am the push rods got mixed up when i replace the intake gasket no i bought new rods I dont know the order that they go in


stand all rods up on a table top, there should be 6 short and 6 long, the short rods go to the intake valves and the long rods go to the exhaust valves.not sure which is the intake and exhaust then with the intake off look into the intake holes if you can see the valve in there then that is the intake valve.

Sequence for the push rods for the intake & exhaust on a 2001 Grand Am GT there are 3 long ones & 3 short ones, While replacing the intake manifold gaskets, I forgot where they go!!!!


The valves that are furthest from the intake, on the outside perimeter of the head, closest to the spark plugs are small diameter valves. These valves use the short rods. The valves that are [non-uniformly] on the interior of the head use the large diameter valves. These valves use the long push rods. This is not due to the diameter, but do to the proximity of the valve on the head with respect to the rod length required to push it. So, looking at a picture of the "front head," closest to the front of the car, from underneath will verify that diameters are small - large - large - small - large - small. Inspecting from above you should note the order of valves as outside - interior - interior - outside - interior - outside. And if you invert that same head to the "rear head" configuration (180o) it would become small - large - small - large - large - small (outside - interior - outside - interior - interior - outside).

The answer is this:
The rear head (2-4-6) will have push-rods in the following configuration:
short - long - short - long - long - short

The front head (1-3-5) will have push-rods in the following configuration:
short - long - long - short - long - short

Random/multiple cylinder misfire detected


when u bent the push rod u might have bent the valve in the head ,by puting the longer push rod where it didnt belong it kept the valve open when the piston came up and the force of the piston on the valve bent the push rod,you will have to remove the head,hope this helps
