SOURCE: pontiac sunfire valve noise

If it's a ticking noise that speeds up with the speed of the engine, it's a worn valve lifter.
You can try tightening it down by taking the valve cover off and tightening the bolt on the rocker arm, but don't tighten it too much, you will end up with other problems.

SOURCE: Were is the thermostat located in a Pontiac Sunfire 2000?

Your thermostat is located under the thermostat housing, which is what the upper radiator hose clamps to on the top of your engine. Basically, you need to start with a cold engine, drain your radiator, then unclamp the upper radiator hose from the engine. Remove the bolts from the thermostat housing, and gently tap on it to remove it. clean up the mounting surfaces on both the engine and the housing, and install a new thermostat, and new gasket. tighten to proper torque, reconnect the radiator hose, then refill up the radiator and cooling system.

SOURCE: my heat wont work on a 95 pontiac sunfire changed

Before you get too deep into this, there's one common problem for GM products. Under the hood near to the passenger side of the firewall, there is a large black plastic ball with two vacuum lines protruding from one end. Check these lines very well from the ball to the manifold. I think you'll find your problem there. Thanks, Dana

2003 pontiac sunfire makes clanking sound from engine, sounds like valves? lifters make more of a ticking sound...right?

valves do not normally make a sound unless the seat insert is loose in the head. This will be revealed by a compression test. I suspect that a clanking sound is much lower in the engine --like a big end failure.

How do I replace a 1995 Pontiac Sunfire's rear license plate lamp

I haven't worked on a '95 sunfire in many years but if memory serves me correctly the light is a sealed unit. The best bet is to get a replacement at the local auto parts store and use it as a model to guide you.

The pushrods were removed and not kept in order. where can i get a diagram?

Keeping the pushrods in order on an engine isn't because of certain ones being longer than others. Pushrods develop an unique wear pattern with the lifter, and if you change them around, they won't seal anymore, and won't carry oil to the top of the valve train. This will result in your valve guides wearing out prematurely, and causing excessive wear. If they haven't been kept in order, you should replace the lifters and pushrods.

I have a 1996 pontiac sunfire with a 2.2 and my book isnt telling me the valve lash. could you help with that?

it does'nt tell you any spec's because you probly have self adjusting lifters A.K.A hydraulic lifters they pump up and take out the slack .just set the rockers properly and you should be goin again.. but if it is overhead cam and all the rockers are on a shaft then i'm guessing the intake would be around .010 thousandth's and the exaust would be more like .012 thousandths but good luck what ever your playing with .
