I have water in the rocker covers


I guess it would depend on how much water and is it clear.
The engine can have condensation until you start it and warm it up, which would be a few drops or so on the inside of the covers. Normally the crankcase venting system is a closed system and outside air can not get in easily.
An intake leak of coolant should be oily and green or orange.

Peugot 106 got warter under rocker cover and white creamey gung going from the breather from the rocker to the air filtter been told its not head gasket


So it's not the head gasket? And you are still losing coolant? Well, okay, you will have to find how the water is getting into the rocker, and whether it's your lost coolant or plain water. IDK, possibly an intake manifold leak?
Even though the oil looks clean, the water and gunge in the rocker area will drain into the sump and contaminate the oil. If it's not the coolant, run the engine until it is hot, then give it a few minutes for the oil and water to drain down from top of the engine into the oil sump. Then change the oil and oil filter. Good luck, hope you find the problem.

1999 malibu 3.1 clyd 5 missfire and now random missfire oil light is on lfters very noise runs rough


Have you confirmed there is no oil pressure and the oil level is full on the dipstick?

The oil pump is turned by the oil pump drive located under the throttle body. The oil pump drive is run of from the cam shaft. It is not uncommon for the camshafts to break on these engines.

It may not be a bad idea to pull the front valve cover and turn the engine over by hand to see if all the rockers are moving.

Ford focus 1.8 peterol zetec shuderring/missfire


Check your fuell filter. You may have low pressure from a clogged filter. Also do a full tune up, plugs, wires and cap and rotor if it has it. Some fuel injector cleaner may help as well. As a precaution have the pressure regulator on the fuel injection rail checked before you do all the other things. They can go bad without warning. Good luck.
