What are the valve settings for a 86 dodge dakota 50 2.0?di 8 valve


I think you have the wrong engine size, plus I believe you have hydraulic lifters anyhow, and there is no adjustment,, if it is ticking, just run a thicker oil or add some Lucas oil treatment.

How do i turn the lifter in the right place if i did not take it apart?


It technically does not matter because even though there is an oil hole to one side of the lifter, the oil gallery in the lifter valley pumps oil around the ridge in the lifter. Standard hydraulic lifters can spin anyways.

Roller lifters should be installed same lobe and roller direction. If not sure install with oil hole facing rear. (oil pressure from this direction)

Technically if reused, all lifters should be installed back on the same lobe...if possible. You'd probably be ok with couple unknowns if engine in overall good condition. It's just with a very worn engine and valve train combined with very low oil pressure, switching lifters around could create a condition that could "wipe" a lobe on the cam and a valve could cease to lift.

It's also a good idea to soak clean lifters briefly in oil (until air bubbles gone) to assist in initial valve train pump up.

Hope this helps.

Knocking noise dodge ram


Pull valve cover off and look for any bad lifters. Or could be piston rod. Sounds like sticky lifter. Not good.

I have a 1996 dodge. ram 3500 with the v10. There is s knocking noise from under left valve cover. it goes away at about 2500 rpm untill it shifts then it's right back.


If it's upper engine noise it could just be sticking hydraulic lifters if the sound isn't constant. If it's more pronounced at a cold start that is probably all it is. A couple of things to try is Lucas Oil Stabilizer in your oil. If the sound reduces more than usual then it's the lifters. You can also try doing a seafoam treatment on the engine. There are several instructional videos on youtube for that. Also check to see if there are any Dodge v10 truck forums. They could have more specific info on the lifter tick.

I have an 89 dodge d 50 pick up and there is a loud ticking in the engine my buddy says its a possible that its a valve tapping does anyone know where I can find a diagram of the valves so I can figure out...


You say D50 do you mean D150 if it is a V8 one lifter is making noise. Lifters are pumped up with oil so they act like a solid piece of metal if there is a little ware in the drive train the lifter can compensate. The lifter has a little dirt in it so it will not fill with oil.Change your oil and filter with good oil and add something to clean the lifter like sea foam.If it keeps making noise find out what side and which end of the valve cover. Remove valve cover have someone start the engine touch the top or the rocker arms by the push rods and you will feel the loose one. Unbolt rocker arm assembly pull out push rod run a magnet down the hole and pull the lifter out. If it won't come out because you didn't change the oil enough and there is a ridge around the bottom buy a tool or rent that goes down the hole and spreads to lock into the lifter slide the hammer bar up the tool it should come out. If you were really really bad at changing the oil the lifter could be mushroomed out on the bottom or the cam wore a hole in the lifter then you have to remove the intake manifold to get it out. Take the new lifter put it into a can of oil and push down on the top a few times to fill it with oil then drop it in and put back together

Q. I have a 1994 f150 on a cold start. Theirs a popping sound on the intake.


This can be a sticking Intake valve or bad valve lifter Sometimes the oil seal in the Valve stem gets varnished up and the valve will not move freely. When the valve is pushed down by the Rocker arm, the valve is too dirty to come back up all the way. You can also have a weak valve spring. Either way, part of the compression is leaving the cylinder and going backwards into the Intake manifold. That is the popping noise you hear.

A valve lifter which is clogged up can also do this. On some engines a single valve lifter can be changed without taking off too much. Some engines allow for a tool to go through the pushrod hole to swap the lifters.

The reverse flow can sometimes leave a trail of carbon inside the Intake manifold. If a mechanic takes that part off, sometimes the cylinder can be identified and worked on separately. There are procedures which allow for even a valve spring to be changed without a total teardown of the heads.

You can also try a product called Risolone or similar to dissolve varnish in the oil passages and the valve stems or clean lifters. Then change the oil.

A less likely problem is a loose timing chain creating slack in the timing process. The valves are not completely closed when the engine fires This allows the compression to escape backwards through the Intake manifold. Although it might seem this would also happen when the engine is warm, the Electronics change the timing when the coolant temperature rises so you can easily have a different timing setting for either a cold or hot engine.

Its worth a try to attempt to clean the interior of the engineby dissolving varnish. I hope I have been very helpful in explaining what your problem is.

I have a loud ticking under my valve cover. 97 ford escort. I think its a loose valve but is it some thing i can fix. I know a little about cars. but not an expert


not a valve, but a lifter. I will paste procedure below. You judge if you can do it or not. Recommend you replace them all while you're in there. If you let this go, the lifter will wear out the camshaft. Lifters are $22 each, and you have 8 of them. You will also need a new valve cover gasket.
Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

See Figures 6, 7, 8 and 9
  1. Disconnect the engine air cleaner-to-valve cover hose from the cover by compressing the hose clamp with pliers and sliding the clamp back, then separate the hose from the cover.
  2. Remove the spark plug wire separators from the valve cover and set the wire assemblies aside.
  3. Unfasten the three valve cover retaining bolts.
  4. Remove the valve cover and gasket from the cylinder head.
WARNING Do not use any abrasive grinding discs to remove gasket material. Use a plastic manual gasket scraper to remove the gasket residue. Be careful not to scratch or gouge the aluminum sealing surfaces when cleaning them.

Can a lifter be fixed on a 97 dodge neon or do I have to take to a shop[? example add oil, change oil. or put oil in a certain spot?


I think you will find that you have to take it to the shop. The valve lifters are located on the camshaft which in the 97 neon is located in the middle of the engine you would need to pull the cylinder heads off to get there, I dont think it will be a quick fix, im sorry good luck
