If the sound is coming from the block, than it probably is. the rod broke from piston pin. Don't run motor if it is like this or the rod WILL go through the block.

If it is from the head, it may be a push rod.

I was quoted $500 to replace all the lifters. Is this a good price?

That is a ridiculously high price to replace lifters on a 4 or 6 cylinder engine. On the Mitsubishi 4 cylinder motor, the only thing that is needed to do is remove the valve cover and remove the rocker rod. (2 rods which hold the rocker assembly.) Next is remove the lifters from the bottoms of the rockers and pop in the new ones. Be sure to soak the new lifters in oil for 24-48hrs prior to install so they are pre-filled before install. Replace the rocker assembly and torque down to specs. replace valve cover and then start the vehicle. Check that there is no loud tapping noise and do not race the engine until the lifters have pumped up with engine oil. You should replace oil and filter for this engine work as well.

Constant knocking on or off the accelerator I thought it was the rods then was told lifters don't know where the lifters are so i can look at them

Lifters would tick or rattle. A knock is usually lower in the engine, a rod or piston in most cases. The lifters are under the valve covers.

I have a 1988 dodge dakota with a 2.2 l litre 4 cylinder there is a noise in the engine that makes it sound like a diesel . i pulled the rocker cover off and checked the cam shaft lobes all looked good ....

it sounds as if you have piston wrist pin noise/not good!/run a compression test-all cylinders should keep same compression +/- 5 to 10 psi/not sure what cylinders shouuld average?say 90 psi refer to shop manuel specs.GOOD LUCK WITH THAT!

Looking to adjust valves on a 2.2 chevy motor in a Corsica hydraulick lifter

Sorry but there is no valve adjustment with hydraulic lifters - can turn the lifter upside down fill with oil - let sit for a while and then tap on the lifters to see if they make noise - if noisy replace.  Camshaft may be worn on the lobes or may have jumped timing if belt.

1988 Cherokee ticking

I had this with my old yj engine take the valve cover off and use a hammer or rod to press down on the rocker arm while running to find the noisy lifter. Also use the wire method as someone else rec. Check the rod bearings also. Mine ended up being the wrist pin in the number 6 cylinder after taking down the trans and removing the head 2 times hope this helps.
