Remove the valve covers. Inspect each rocker arm for wear, cracks or other damage, check the rocker arm abd dykcrum for wear, replace with new ones, they can"t be adjusted.

same order as removed. Tighten the rocker arm bolts
to 28 N·m (21 ft. lbs.) torque.
CAUTION: DO NOT rotate or crank the engine during
or immediately after rocker arm installation.
Allow the hydraulic roller tappets adequate time to
bleed down (about 5 minutes).
(4) Install cylinder head cover.
(5) Connect spark plug wires.

Sound gets louder win in motion it has 243,000 miles.culd it be a rocker arm? it has good oil pressure. 2000 jeep grand cherokee laradoe straight 6 4.0 automatic 4x4 makes tapping sound? what should i...


What kind of sound? If it's a ticking sound from inside the valve cover it could be a bad rocker arm, worn lifter or lifter & cam lobe or broken valve spring (needs to be looked at). If the noise is deep and best heard at the oil pan. it could be a rod bearing or main beginning to go but generally, that lowers oil pressure. Another item that sounds nearly the same is a cracked flywheel. Careful listening can often unravel this or have a very experienced tech look at it....(still your choice on who does the repair).

1997 jeep grand cherokee laredo replace collapsed lifter 4.0l il6


What motor do you have? The V8, you can remove just the intake manifold and the valve covers/rocker arms to remove the lifter. The V6, I believe you need to remove the head to access the lifters.
