If it's knocking,It's not a rocker arm (They tick) Knock are usually rod or rod bearings or a bad balance shaft and you can't adjust those.

Does the clicking ever go away? valve adjustments are tricky and must be done in a certain sequence. It's best they be done by a knowledgeable mechanic or it can get all messed up. No offence. I'm not sure if the lifters are hydraiulic or solid. If hydraulic, a quart of dexron trans fluid in the oil should free up a sticking lifter. Watch your oil pressure and add only to clean oil and filter. Do not overfill engine. If it calls for 5 quarts then put 4 + the trans fluid. if it quiets down after running for about 10 minutes. a sticky lifter was your problem and crappy oil was the cause.
Good luck.and change the oil again whether it works or not within 50 miles.or once it clrars up.

1995 old cutlass rocker arms wont tighten?


need to know what size motor you have but the 3.1, 3.4, and 3.8 liter motors are know for the rocker arm studs striping out inside of the head so while you think your tightening it your really only turning the nut and the stud. try putting a wrench(13mm) on it and turn to see if stud is turning. if so it will need to be drilled out and a helie coil put in it

Hi, i am looking at a 93 nissan pathfinder, it has a clean interior, a straight body, but the guy says it have a broken rocker arm. I know what rocker arms are. can you tell me, what damage this would do...


Just about any vehicle is worth $200 for scrap.
It would depend on how or why the rocker arm broke if the engine is worth fixing. You would not know without removing the valve cover and looking at the rest of the parts.

Why does it sound like a lifter knocking? i know that one of the shaft mounted rocker arms is loose, could that be the problem and what can i do to fix it?


it sounds like a lifter ,because that is what it is . that is why the rocker is loose because the hydraulic lifter is not pumping up all you can do is replace the lifter and keep your oil clean with regular oil changers and filters

I need to troubleshoot dtc p0325 & p1320 on a 1997 Nissan Maxima GXE?


Hi,

The two codes seem to be related. The P0325 description is knock sensor circuit malfunction and the P1320 is ignition signal - circuit malfunction.

I'll summarize and then give links on more detailed articles I found. Basically the P0325 refers to the knock sensor and associated wiring. The P1320 refers to the ignition coil and wiring. Check the sensor, coil, and associated wiring.

I found some great articles:
P0325 - http://www.obd-codes.com/p0325
P1320 - http://autorepair.about.com/library/a/1i/bl039i.htm

Good luck!
