SOURCE: rocker arms

Hello antcarrol,
I'm, thinking you may mean cam rocker arms (lobe followers) and like the saying goes, "1 picture is worth a thousand words". These arms fit below cam shaft and sit over valve springs with a small round disc shaped spacer. These spacers are notched so the follower rest on valve. The other end of follower sits atop of the lash adjuster, The top of this adjuster is globed shaped to fit securely to the follower while allowing the correct lash adjustment by two hex nuts on the adjuster.
Confused yet? Well its not easier said than done. If you have access to a shop manual hopefully picture will help Good luck and I hope I have helped. Kam

SOURCE: Rocker arm failure

Did the timing belt break at one time? Aside from the obvious of it sounding like your son did what mine did and tried to race the vehicle beyond it's abilities if the timing belt broken at one time it may have damaged the valves. If the valve impacts the cyclinder it is possible that it can damage the rocker and cam. When you pull the head off this time have the head re-worked and valves replaced. This should solve the problem.

2004 Cavalier broken rocker arms after head gasket repair.


Rocker arm issues are common in that car. They can happen without any reason. This is not going to be cheap to look at. When the head was repaired it had to be removed. The timing chain might not have been properly tensioned. That would cause the timing chain to slip and then you have pistons slapping valves and spark plugs. This cause rocker arms and pushrods to bend or break and also can damage pistons.

Peugot 106 got warter under rocker cover and white creamey gung going from the breather from the rocker to the air filtter been told its not head gasket


So it's not the head gasket? And you are still losing coolant? Well, okay, you will have to find how the water is getting into the rocker, and whether it's your lost coolant or plain water. IDK, possibly an intake manifold leak?
Even though the oil looks clean, the water and gunge in the rocker area will drain into the sump and contaminate the oil. If it's not the coolant, run the engine until it is hot, then give it a few minutes for the oil and water to drain down from top of the engine into the oil sump. Then change the oil and oil filter. Good luck, hope you find the problem.

Oil licking for my doge caravan 1998, how do i repaire or replack


The oil doesn't leak from the head gasket, Unless it is broken. The oil is inside the engine, the head gasket seals out the water from the cylinder walls, and keeps the compression in. No oil, It could be coming from the rocker cover gasket just above the heads. They always leak. The engine sits at a slight pitch to get the oil out and down. And it usually leaks at the rear the most. Changing those gaskets is a job, you have to remove everything up top of the engine to get to them, then seal up the spark plugs too if they are in the covers. I did mine a few years back and they are just starting to leak again. It only has 250,000 miles, go figure. Check it out, hope this helps.
