Hi,

This engine and vehicle are fitted with hydraulic valve adjusters which means there is no clearance adjustments for them.
The trouble will be the lifters are either worn or have a blocked lubricating orifice.

Give it an engine flush and put in some new engine oil, this may help you out.

Thanks

Jason

Ok so ik I'm posting allot haha but does anyone know where or how to adjust lifters just found out mine r just now needed adjustment in near mount Vernon WA or a price at least haha


In engines with rocker arm valve systems, the procedure I'm familiar with is to remove a rocker arm cover, and (one at a time!) while the engine is running, slowly back off the rocker arm retainer nut or bolt just until you hear the lifter tapping, then tighten it a quarter turn. If you can identify a lifter that is already tapping, tighten its rocker arm slowly until it stops tapping, then adjust it. Do not over-tighten! This can damage the engine.

Listen carefully to how the engine sounds; if it starts to stumble when you tighten a loose rocker arm, you've gone too far. If you cannot get the engine to run well without tapping, you may have too much wear in the valve train and may be due for a head overhaul, or you don't have adequate oil pressure in the lifters in question.
Repeat until all rocker arms are done. Replace the rocker arm cover using a new gasket, then (in a V-engine), repeat the procedure on the other side of the engine.

Wearing safety goggles, or better yet, a transparent face shield, is strongly recommended. Sometimes oil will squirt out a considerable distance from the lifter side of the rocker arm during adjustment, and the direction is not readily predictable.

1995 old cutlass rocker arms wont tighten?


need to know what size motor you have but the 3.1, 3.4, and 3.8 liter motors are know for the rocker arm studs striping out inside of the head so while you think your tightening it your really only turning the nut and the stud. try putting a wrench(13mm) on it and turn to see if stud is turning. if so it will need to be drilled out and a helie coil put in it

Torque settings for rocker shaft for a 1998 7k toyota 1800


There is no such thing as a rocker shaft. There is a cam shaft, rocker arm assembly, Rocker arm, lifter etc. If you are talking about the rocker arm assembly that bolts to the head, it is 58 Ft/lbs. If you are talking about the actual rocker arms, you tighten them till they contact the push rod and the valve stem and then you put oil control clips on so the oil does not spray and you start the engine. You tighten them down till the chattering noise goes away, then back them off 1/8 to 1/4 turn.

Hi, i am looking at a 93 nissan pathfinder, it has a clean interior, a straight body, but the guy says it have a broken rocker arm. I know what rocker arms are. can you tell me, what damage this would do...


Just about any vehicle is worth $200 for scrap.
It would depend on how or why the rocker arm broke if the engine is worth fixing. You would not know without removing the valve cover and looking at the rest of the parts.

What are the torque specifications for a 3.5l v6 1995 ford tarus rocker arm


For each valve, rotate the crankshaft until the valve lifter rests on the heel (base circle) of the camshaft lobe. Position the rocker arm(s) over the push rods, then install the rocker arm seats. Tighten the rocker arm seat retaining bolts to 44 inch lbs. (5 Nm).

Final-tighten the rocker arm retaining bolt(s) to 19-25 ft. lbs. (25-35 Nm). For final tightening, the camshaft may be in any position.

Hope helps.

How do you tighten up rocker arms 1999 ford tarus


Locate a repair manual (CHILTONS) <-- is best; and look up the torque specifications.

Once you have located this information, take of one valve cover at a time. With the torque wrench, (engine running) tighten up each rocker arm that is "ticking" or "loose" to the proper torque spec - or until it stops ticking. You will want to work quickly so you don't start to spray oil.

You can torque these with engine off, but start engine with cover removed to tighten them up until they stop ticking.

I suggest also speaking with certified mechanic about this and if there are other certain procedures for this as well. I have personally done it this way (successfully), however, it is always best to get a second and/or third opinion. I have also had a mechanic do this as I watched him as well.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Rocker arm adjustments 5.7 vortec


as long as the oil system was primed and the lifters are full tighten each rocker down until it is snug enough that you can't move it with your fingers.put the valve covers back on and run the motor for a couple minutes. then run the motor with one of the valve covers off at a time. it can be a little messy but this is the best way. as the motor is running loosen each rocker nut until you hear chatter then tighten it back down until it stops plus one quarter turn. this is the best way I know to make sure they are just right.
