Lifters are designed to rotate to prevent the cam lobe wearing out in one spot or the base of the lifter wearing out funny.. The oil hole points to a groove so that they get oil regardless of the direction

SOURCE: engine lifter noise

Typically lifter noise indicates loose or broken components. Pull the cover and check for damage or lifter play. Follow the factory procedure for re-setting your valve clearances. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cost of lifter replacement


If the lifters aren't filling with oil the oil pump must not be working properly. You have a bigger problem than your lifters.

Lifter noise


yes they do wear out and will not hold oil pressure. I would be checking the pivot points of the rockers and the face of the rockers where they hit on the valve end. I say this because if the hydraulic tappets were so bad you would have very low oil pressure at idle.

BAD LIFTERS WILL MAKE A NOISE.IF VALVE LIFTERS AND LOWER SPRING SEALS BEEN REPLACED AND LIFTERS STILL NOISEY.EITHER ENGINE OIL TOO THICK OR ENGINE NEED OIL CHANGE + FILTER CHANGE.DIRTY OIL CAUSE LIFTER NOISE OR OIL PASSAGES IN THE CYLINDER HEAD STOPPED UP NOT ALLOWING LIFTERS TO GET THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF OIL.OR OIL PRESSURE TO LOW DUE TO FAULTY OIL PUMP.OIL PRESSURE SHOULD BE 29 PSI @2000 RPM.

Valves are tapping in my 2002 jeep liberty sport. tried rislon, valve medic, transmission fluid.


The cleaners such as rislone etc.....need to be left in and run in the engine for a few days to a few weeks. You can run two cans at once.
You can also run a thicker oil such as 15w40 to see if that helps.
If none of the above makes a difference you may have a blocked oil passage or a crack in a oil passage lowering oil pressure to the lifters.

If it is "lifters" and not just one lifter allowing to much clearance in the valve train you may indeed have a blockage or crack.
If it is just one it may be a mechanical lifter defect and it may need replacing.

The above assumes all oil changes were done on time with high quality oil.

The cheap cleaning method is 25% gas and 75% oil put into the crankcase and run that for 20 mins.

Want to remove and replace the distributor, how is


This sounds like the oil seal on the distributor needs replacing. I have not got the the timimg details but you can set it up this way until you can get the specs.

  1. Set the rotor arm to No 1 cylinder.
  2. Now mark this on the distributor.
  3. Mark the bottom of the distributor and the housing (inline with each other).
  4. Now put the car in gear and do not turn the engine.
  5. Check your timing marks on both your cam and crank shafts.
  6. Take out the distribuor and replace the the worn seal.
  7. Put back the distributor while lining up all the alinement marks that you have made.
  8. Now nip up the the distributor but do not full tighten it.
  9. Check your alinement marks, take the car out of gear and start the engine.
  10. If the engine is not running correctly, you can increase or decrease the engine speed by moving the distributor slightly to the left or right.
  11. When you have the engine tick over speed to your liking you can stop the engine and and tighten up the distributor.
Following these instructions you should be only a few degrees out at the most.
When you get the the correct timing information you can use a timing light to rset up the ignition timing.

Oil not getting to back rocker, push rod clear. had a new head gasket put on, pulled head to see if it was put on backwards, it was not. how do you replace lifter.


Since you already have had it apart, you know at what point you can see the lifter. Lifter pulls straight up out of its bore, new one drops right in. If cam contact surface is worn concave, you need to replace cam as well. Always use assembly lube on lifter/cam contact surface when installing.
