How do I stop the ticking on the lifter on a 1996 jeep GC 4.0?

When my engine had a LOUD, persistent tick, I made sure that the engine was warmed up, turned it off, drained the oil, chased it with Lucas engine oil treatment (so that I got more dirt out of it), changed the oil filter with a decent one (as I no longer use Fram Extra Guard filters--but have no problem with their Tough Guard filters), refill the crankcase with fresh oil that meets or exceeds the specification on the oil cap, on the oil dipstick, or in the manual to the quantity that's also specified in the manual. Be safe & have fun!

I have water gitting into the cylender head of my 1998 jeep cherokee. i replace all the gaskets but its still leaking. what could cause this?

If you replaced the cylinder head gasket it could be a cracked block or head. If you didn't replace the head gasket it could be blown. It could also be a warped head, especially if it's magnesium alloy. If only a small amount is getting into the head, you might want to try radiator sealant. In the old days we used to pour in a raw egg in the radiator while the engine is running. Most times it would stop the leak for a few weeks.

I have a 2000 jeep cherokee sport 4.0 4wd. i need to replace a lifter. can i change it without pulling the head

It is possible, I have seen this done. You have to connect a compressor to a fitting that will screw in and seal in the hole for the spark plug for the cylinder you want to change the lifter on. Pressurize the cylinder so the valves won't drop and do the replacement. Without looking up the repair procedure for a lifter that is as far as I can go with this. In some vehicle the lifter can be replaced without removing the cam but most will require that be done. Make sure you get the repair manual on your vehicle so you have directions for removing and replacing the lifter. I know there are some shops that do this all the time but I have never done it myself.

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.

Below is a link to the front rotor and all components on a 4WD Jeep Cherokee.

4-Wheel Drive
  1. Loosen the lug nuts on the front wheels.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  3. Remove the front wheels.
  4. Remove the calipers, but don't disconnect the brake lines. Suspend the calipers out of the way.
  5. Remove the rotor.
  6. Installation is the reverse of removal. Tighten wheel lug nuts to 75 ft. lbs. (101 Nm).
Best of luck!

How do you remove the interior panel on a 1992 Jeep Cherokee lift-gate to gain access to the speakers.

if there arent any screws visible then its probably snapped in place all you have to do is pull firmly on the outer most edge and it should release you may need to use a flat head screwdriver.

Hi.have jumped pushrod.are cam followers hydraulic and can they be removed from top with magnet or cylinder head have to come off.regards lenny .2.5 td

I don't see the answer I posted so here's the short version: the head does not have to come off. There is a better tool available to remove lifters it is an expandable "hook" that grips the inside lip of the lifter and has a small slide hammer on it so if lifter sticks in bore you can still get it out. Any dishing on business end of lifter indicates corresponding cam wear. If dished, cam needs replacement. also check pivot point on rocker and ends of pushrod for wear.
good luck

Thrown pushrod

As far as I know, lifters can be removed without removing cyl head. sometimes the business end of the lifter expands slightly and a magnet will not be able to remove it. There is a tool that grabs the lip on the lifter bore and has a small slide hammer on it. If you have a problem getting the lifter out, see if you can get this tool. Check the bottom of the old lifter for any "dishing" this indicates a worn cam lobe. If worn, you need to change the cam as well. Good luck with it!
