Question about Cars & Trucks
I believe there is a lifter on the driver's side of my Durango that has gone bad...it's ticking. What is a fair price to pay a mechanic to fix this problem?
I'm sorry, but that's a question best left for a mechanic. No one can really answer that for you. Your area, the motor and model of your durango are all variables taken into account at price time. No one can give you that answer here.
Call several shops, including a Dodge dealer. Pick the one you favor and, take a few minutes to contact the Better Business Bureau and find out if the business is a BBB member and is deemed "reputable".

SOURCE: lifters on a 2000 hyundai Accent
3 valves per cylinder 4 cylinder engine, 3X4 is 12, so yes 12 is correct, no u don't have to change all of them, just the defective ones, the reason they want to do this is one of 2 things, there is a problem with the design of the original lifters and they want to update them, 2nd reason is they have been unable to isolated which lifter(s) are causing the tapping noise.

open the valve cover and feel all your lifters to see which is loose.
spin your push rod with your fingers while tightening your rocker arm(should be 5/8) once you can not spin the push rod any more give it 3/4 of a turn and your good to go repeat for any loose rocker arms.

I am not an expert on the these engines but the 94 galant (in the USA) had a 4g64 engine (2.4 inline 4 cyl fuel injected). On the 4g64 engine the valves are hydrolic meaning there is no manual adjustment. YOur mechanic made a mistake in that the valve lash adjusters should have been reinstalled back in their original position. Being that was not done there is not much you can do other than replace them with new ones. By the way the valve lash adjusters should be partialy filled with oil so there is little or no plunger action when the adjuster is depressed. Your mechanic should have placed them in a can of clean engine oil and depressed the plunger on the valve lash adjusters to cause them to fill with oil. If you can still depress the adjusted after it is filled with oil then it is defective. By the way, this is not an unusual problem as many high mileage Galants make a fair bit of valve noise. You can get more details from a Haynes manual (about $20 at autozone)
