Question about Suzuki Sidekick
Did you pump up the lifters with oil? They are what oils the valves. As the motor runs they act as pumps and hydrolic shock absorbers at the same time. They pump oil up through the push rods. So when you try to adjust them they collapse and don't fill back up.
A drill press and push rod is the best way, tighten the pushrod into the chuck. Leave it off. then place the lifter in a small bowl of oil and press it down with the lever on drill. do it over and over until it gets hard to pump.
