Not sure what rocker timing is but if you are talking about a rocker arm tapping then you will need to remove the rocker arm cover and adjust the lifter that is making the noise.

Poping noise in a 07 dodge nitro 3.7. Is it the rockers

Only if the oil has been low for a long time. Rockers/ lifters will make a ticking noise, tapping as they wear down. Popping would be towards the vales not closing. All this is from engine neglect. Dodge makes a reliable engine. But no engine will last if the fluids are kept up and changed.

Stalled the engine and now struggling to start and idle and making bad topend noise,as if valves are hitting pistons. Any suggestions?

If it starts then I would leave that possibility to last. I would remove the rocker cover and check the operation of the rockers as one may have slipped sideways and is not directly over a valve stem. t is also possible to check the valve timing with the rocker cover off. Turn the engine clockwise until the rockers on no 1 cylinder start to move watch these rockers and when you see no1 exhaust rocker start to come up then it will be getting close . Keep turning until you see the exhaust rocker stop moving up and the inlet no1 cylinder rocker start to go down. Move the crank back and forth until you get the position of movement either way moves either rocker. This is called valve overlap and if you look at the timing mark on the harmonic balancer pulley then the mark will be almost /on TDC
I would then run the fault codes as there may be other problems that caused the stall situation.

Rattling noise in engine

Pull the valve cover off to check for rocker arm. Could be exhaust leak if more of a popping sound than a rattle.

How to adjust rocker arms on 05 chevy equinox

already ?
the standard procedure for adjusting rocker arms on some cars is to adjust them with the engine running. but this is messy.
loosen the nut until you hear clicking n tapping noise, stop.
now turn the nut Tighter a little at a time until you hear the noise stop, then turn the nut 1/4 turn more and move on to next rocker.

this only applies if you have pushrods.

06 A6 pet 2.0T very loud engine noise at bulk-head side of rocker

ur car uses hydrolic lifters instead of tappets but they sound the same when faulty. most likely a 'sticky' lifter. very expensive to change.

Rattling noise folowed by one cylander failing to fire . a mechanic said the problem was internal, possibly a valve spring or rocker arm. the engine is a 5.4L---3spring

Depending on if its a new body style or old. New body style engines have problems with whats called a phazer in the timing chain system. If its the old style it is possible its a valve train noise but technically it doesnt have rocker arms because it is overhead camshaft design. Some removal of parts will probably be needed to determine the cause of the noise.

My 2002 honda civic has a steady clicking noise that goes faster on acceleration. The noise is audible though just when idling as well. Any ideas?

Needs more oil or you spun a bearing. Also could knocking lifter. Try some engine restore if your oil is at the proper level. If that doesnt work it will be spun bearing or bad rocker. Have it checked out by local mechanic to be for certain.
