How do I set the lifters on a 1995 GMC pickup?


Before starting first put engine on #1 TDC compression stroke. Adjust #1 rockers such that you have zero lift (push rod will spin by hand but just barely), then tighten additional 1/2 to 3/4 turn in 1/4 turn increments with time for lifter to pump down between turns. A shop manual will tell you which others you can set at this same time (I forget). Then rotate engine one full turn and set the rest. I like to then run engine until warm and while at idle and using clips that cover the hole in each rocker arm where oil squirts out, I loosen each rocker one at a time (engine running) until rocker starts to click, then in 1/4 turn increments I tighten them for final preload depending on what lifters I am using--some need 3/4 turns to center lifter, some need total 1 turn. All this will be found in any cheap shop manual.

Lifters sticking cleaned and now it shakes real bad when it is running.


If this is a 1.9 ltr you need to remove and compress all the lifters they are too tight and are holding the valves partialy open if this is a mazda engine simply adjust the valves if the lifters are pumped up

Losing power,tapping noise in valve cover. could it be the rocker arm and the cam?


could be bad lifters or loose rocker arms, bad oil pump or low on oil, possible bad cam (but not likely)
first thing i would do is check your oil real low oil will cause this
if oil is fine check for oil pressure if oil pressure is low assume bad oil pump
if oil prssure looks good look for bad lifters or loose rocker arms

its possible you have a filter in your tank or farther up your line near the fuel rail. look for another filter and make sure you have fuel to the filter you just replaced. could have clogged it again if you have alot of rust and setament in your tank.
