If you are competent at stripping down, repairing, reassembling and re timing, go for it. 14200 miles is very low mileage!

SOURCE: how to tighten rocker arms

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.

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.

1993 Nissan Pathfinder has a leak on interior passenger side.

You should be able to find the end of the drain on the fire wall at the passengers feet area. Compressed air is the method used by garages but you may be able to fish a wire up the drain and unclog it. You will know it when a lot of water comes out.

How do i solve a sticking accelerator on my 99 nissan pathfinder?

It will have to be lubed, but first find out what is sticking. Disconnect the cable from the pedal and work the pedal if it is free go under the hood and disconnect the other end work the throttle is it free. If the throttle and pedal are free the cable is binding or going bad. The best thing to do is replace the cable.
