How do i turn the lifter in the right place if i did not take it apart?


It technically does not matter because even though there is an oil hole to one side of the lifter, the oil gallery in the lifter valley pumps oil around the ridge in the lifter. Standard hydraulic lifters can spin anyways.

Roller lifters should be installed same lobe and roller direction. If not sure install with oil hole facing rear. (oil pressure from this direction)

Technically if reused, all lifters should be installed back on the same lobe...if possible. You'd probably be ok with couple unknowns if engine in overall good condition. It's just with a very worn engine and valve train combined with very low oil pressure, switching lifters around could create a condition that could "wipe" a lobe on the cam and a valve could cease to lift.

It's also a good idea to soak clean lifters briefly in oil (until air bubbles gone) to assist in initial valve train pump up.

Hope this helps.

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.

I have a loud ticking under my valve cover. 97 ford escort. I think its a loose valve but is it some thing i can fix. I know a little about cars. but not an expert


not a valve, but a lifter. I will paste procedure below. You judge if you can do it or not. Recommend you replace them all while you're in there. If you let this go, the lifter will wear out the camshaft. Lifters are $22 each, and you have 8 of them. You will also need a new valve cover gasket.
Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

(.0039mm) oversize lifters. The oversized lifters will have "10'' etched into the side. The block will be stamped "OS'' on the cast pad next to the lifter bore. and on the top rail of the crankcase above the lifter bore. WARNING
    New lifters must be primed before installation. Damage to the lifters and engine will result if new lifters are installed dry!
  6. Prime new lifters by immersing them in clean kerosene, engine oil or diesel fuel and working the lifter plunger while the unit is submerged.
  7. Prior to installation, coat the lifter roller with engine oil supplement. Re-used lifters must be installed in their original positions!
  8. Install the lifters.

Need instructions on how to change the lifters in my 1998 Chevy S10 2.2L


Please don't forget to rate!!!!

2.2L Engine When installing new lifters, a pre-lube should always be applied to the lifter body. It is also a good idea to prime hydraulic lifters by submerging them in clean engine oil and depressing the plunger using an old pushrod. This allows the internal components of the hydraulic lifter to coat with oil before initial operation in the engine. All lifters should be replaced when a new camshaft is installed.
If any valve train components (lifters, pushrods, rocker arms) are to be reused, they must be tagged or arranged during removal to assure installation in their original locations.
  1. Remove the rocker arm cover.
  2. Remove the cylinder head assembly from the engine.
  3. Remove the bolts retaining the lifter anti-rotation brackets, then remove the brackets.
  4. Remove the hydraulic roller lifters from the bores.
  5. Inspect the lifter and lifter bore for wear and scuffing. Examine the roller for freedom of movement and/or flat spots on the roller surface.

Use a lifter removal tool to remove the lifters from the bore

To install:
If installing a new lifter, coat the lifter body with a suitable camshaft pre-lube
  1. Install each hydraulic lifter to its bore being careful to align the flat sides (top) of the lifters with the flat sides of the anti-rotation brackets. When properly installed the flat sides of each lifter are aligned parallel to the anti-rotation bracket. The roller at the bottom of the lifter is parallel to the camshaft lobe.
Make sure to properly align and install each lifter as improper installation of the lifters or brackets could result in engine damage.
  1. Install the anti-rotation bracket retaining bolts and tighten to 97 inch lbs. (11 Nm).
  2. Install the cylinder head.
  3. Install the rocker arm cover.

How do the lifters go on a monte carlo 1999


You will need to pull the intake manifold and once you have it off, remove the rockers and push rods. Then you can remove the lifters. This is a pretty intense job (about 3.0 hrs for the novice). If you are installing new lifters then you will need to soak the new ones in oil for about 30 minutes before install.

I cant get a rocker arm to tighten down on my 96 taurusit torqs down but stays loose .the push rod is in place but it is not firm


You may have a collapsed lifter or it may just be normal if the engine has not been started up yet. If you are installing old lifters (or did not remove lifters for whatever repair you were performing) there may be debris/varnish on the lifter preventing it from returning under spring pressure. (In which case you should probably replace it.) Some new lifters are very soft before the engine is started and the lifter has had a chance to "Pump Up".

I just replaced all of my hydraulic lifters and no compression!


Yes, you've overtightened the lifters causing the valves to not close completely. If you did not prime the new lifters before you installed them and tightened them with the engine off they are most likely collapsed. back off all of the rockers to just snug and make sure the engine is running when you readjust them. Usually you need to let new lifters sit in a can of oil for a while to fill up. I've used a syringe to fill lifters prior to installation. Did you replace the push-rods also? If so were they the same length as the originals?

Lifters for a 1994 Mits3kgt


If you just want to swap lifters it's recommended to get the newer generation lifters that have larger oil wholes that don't get blocked and cause lifter tick. new lifters should be soaked in diesel and be sure to keep magnest away from them so you don't magnetize the ball valve inside.

SOHC or DOHC?

There is a guide here that does just the lifters not valve stem seals
http://www.stealth316.com/misc/installing_new_lifters.doc
This should get you going in the right direction. I beleive i used a tool that is a flat bar with a 45 angle to press the lever down so i could pull the rocker and lifter but it's been a while and i don't know where i got the tool. it's flat with a red plastic coated handle.


If you are doing lifters then look at doing the Valve Stem Seals also. Saves you burning oil and keeps the engine running cleaner.
http://www.3si.org/forum/f58/make-your-own-valve-spring-compressor-15-a-217700/

official tool to compress springs is very expensive but there's a home made solution above. this works but takes some muscle and patience.
another solution that requires removing the cams
http://www.3si.org/forum/f1/vss-installation-removal-installation-tool-tips-460376/

I'd say the lifters is pretty easy but valve stem seals requires a little more tools wise and time.
