1st thing I would recommend would be getting the whole engine degreased.then drive vehicle for a couple of days and then recheck where leak is coming from 100percent as it could be running down from rocket cover gasket.
if you pin point the leak is coming from the sump you will need to drain oil and remove sump and clean surface area and resell sump and refit.also replace sump plug gasket while ur going.
The oil plug for the engine oil drain,is on the engine sump,which is under the engine and after you lift it up on stands,you will locate it about 20-25 cm far from the Crankshaft pulley which rotates when the engine is running with a belt for alternator,and this plug is facing the location of the front seat passenger if is left hand driven.By using a 19 mm ring spanner loose and remove -by having a drainer under -leaving the oil to come out.
get underneath and look for it. the plug will be on the bottom of the oil pan in the sump portion. the filter will be readily accessible from the underside of the vehicle as well, possibly concealed underneath a cover or hatch.
Nice and easy, drop the oil from the bottom of the sump, pull the oil check stick, remove filter in the black cylindrical housing at the front of the engine it has a massive hexagon shape on the top which simply unscrews with the right tool, to reveal the filter, replace the sump bolt using a new copper washer, replace filter and put oil in whilst checking dipstick as you go.Good luck.Davelee
there are 2 ways you can set the timing... the right way and the lazy way... if you do not have access to a timing light grab a friend you can trust... have them put the parking brake on and power brake of lug the motor (holding the brake and giving it gas) at the base of your dist. there should be a bolt of nut. loosen the bolt or nut and turn dist until it just starts to knock and back it off a little bit... and retighten nut or bolt... that should get you close enough... a timing light is still the most accurate and best way to set it but this also works its just more dangerous ie: getting ran over
the lifters are naking noise because they are worn out or the engine oil is not reaching them due to the oil pump,but due to your cars year they might be just worn out there is only one way to fix a problem like this is to get then replaced there is no quick fix,and also they will just get louder and louder like tick tick tick and it will sound quicker.
