Lifters are adjustable...While running, back off 'till clacking, then turn down 'till just stops making noise, then 1/4 to 1/2 turn further down. Don't do this anywhere you don't want oil all over the floor. It gets messy. (someone used to make "bibs" for the rockers to keep oil splash to a minium don't know if available any more)
If they do not take adjustment, check that all rockers travel the same distance. Any that do not likely have worn lifters. Don't bother replacing any that are dished on the cam end. cam will need replacement as well.

How I set valve clearance on 5.3 L engine on 2001 Surburban

This is a very easy solution. They are not adjustable. If they are making noise it is probably because the oil pressure is a bit low by the time it gets to the lifters of the lifters could be getting tired.
This engine has a roller camshaft and lifters. Does it make lifter noise or are you just asking general knowledge?

1993 chevy suburban cranks but wont start, no injection pulse

Have you looked at fuel pump and fuel filter? Turn key to first position and have someone near fuel tank. They should hear the pump cycle.

generally a car of that age is going to have a lifter ticking. it's usually nothing to worry about but can be fixed. basically you will have to take of the manifold covers and unless you know which one is ticking you will need to adjust/replace all of them. just don't get a lifter ticking confused with an engine knocking.

Does my 2005 chevy cavalier have adjustable hydrolic lifters

Hi, your engine has hydraulic lifters, but they are not adjustable. If you hear ticking there, a lifter has likely failed and needs to be replaced. please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Do the valves need periodic adjustments in a 1999 Chevy suburban and how many valves per cylinder

The valves never need adjusted, .Do to hydraulic lifters and zero clearance.The rocker arms are torqued to 35 ftlbs.So you never have to worry about it.If there is a noise have your lifters checked:)
