SOURCE: After having heads rebuilt and

Replace the adjustment nuts with new ones, they are a special type of nut that keeps its setting by friction between the crimp and the threads, this friction is given by a slight crimp to the nut that makes it out of round near the top of the treads, u can also install a product to the threads called Loctite red thread lock, U can also buy locking rocker arm adjustment nuts that use an allen screw to "lock" in the adjustment, these are avail from amny speed shops, one i use is Summit racing, another is Jegs speed, please keep in mind that other factors can cause this, one is low oil pressure caused by a camshaft bearings not being installed correctly, there are holes that allow oil to flow properly, if they are not lined up correctly to the block oil gallery then this can starve the lifter for oil pressure and they get noisy.

What's the torque spec for 3.9 dakota rocker arm bolts


In the 2000 Dakota, the torque is 21 ft lb/28 N m. I suspect this torque is the same for all 3.9 L V6 engines.

Valve settings on a 1992 dodge dakota v6 engine


You should have hydraulic lifters, unless someone changed them along the way. Normally nobody puts solid lifters in a vehicle that is a driven on the street daily. That being said, the normal adjustment for hydraulic lifters is normally take all clearance out of rocker arm to lifter plus an extra 1/2 to 3/4 turn. I used to do this with the motor running, I would adjust it tighter till it quits rattling and then tighten an extra 1/2 turn. If the lifters are bad, however, the rattling will never go away. I hope this helps.

Trying to set the intake and exhaust valves on a 2001 dodge dakota v6 what does the gap need to be and i also need to know the firing order


Your engine uses hydraulic lifters and the clearance is not adjustable. Just make sure to tighen the rockers to 21 Ft/Lbs.

Firing order is 1-6-5-4-3-2..Cylinders 1-3-5 are on the DRIVERS side Front to back and 2-4-6 are on the PASSENGER side Front to back.

2005 dodge dakota has a rattle for 5 seconds at


Sounds like a rocker arm is out of adjustment or one of the rocker arms are worn more than the rest. If you find one loose rocker arm and the rest are tight then the entire rocker assembly will need to be removed and the one rocker arm will have to be replaced. Thats on a V6 and V8 models . Now on the four cylinder you have to remove the timing belt cover,unbolt the timing belt and hold tension on it to keep the belt from jumping off the crankshaft gear. Remove the rocker arm cover and you will have to remove the cam to get to the roller rocker arms. There is alot of work to do to get this job done. If you do not have all the tools to do this with, then it would be better to take the truck to a mechanics shop for repairs. Hope this will help you.
