Check and verify that you have good oil pressure...good is 30psi or above at idle hot. Then,If after checking the rocker arm assembly you find no wear and all rockers travel about the same distance with no variations when cranking the engine (otherwise you may need a cam or lifter)
You can try using marvel oil added to the crankcase, then follow up with lucas additive about a week later. (remove the filter and drain it if there isn't enough room...you don't want to over fill it my more than a pint.) If that does not work then likely a lifter has internal wear and needs to be replaced.
If when you checked pressure it was low then likely you have worn crankshaft bearings. Aside from replacement there is no cure for that.

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!

What can cause a knocking at the right hand side valve cover


Hi , usually a knocking / pinging from the valve cover indicates a lifter tapping. Could be worn out or just worn. Do you change your oil every 3000 with high quality oil? (I always have used valvoline standard with outstanding results) Dirty oil and filter and or incorect weight oil and or using synthetic oil in older cars can result in lifters tapping. If your oil is under 2000 miles since last change and you used a high quality oil (watch who changes your oil, some places use inferior oil because its cheaper) you can buy a pint of oil treatment formula to quiet noisy lifters to coat the lifter and quiet it down. It is a sign of engine wear, but one lifter tapping a bit wont really hurt your engine mechanically. If they all get noisy, time for a valve job. Root cause is wear due to insufficient lubrication. The lifters on newer cars are all hydraulic and they self adjust. No manual adjustment is possible. Bottom line: keep your oil changed regularly using a high quality non-synthetic oil for your 1999 vehicle.

Ok i got a 1996 camaro z28, and the engine is knocking. everyone is telling me a lifter is loose so i took the valve cover off and i cant figure out how to tightin them down without pulling the roller...


Actually you cannot tighten a noisy lifter. only the rocker arm assembly and it should be torqued at manufacturer specification. There's not much you can do for a noisy lifter except major engine overhaul. You can try aftermarket oil supplements that are available at most retail stores, including Autozone.

What causes oil not to circulate through lifters on a 5.2 95 Jeep Grand Cheroke?


Dirty, clogged up oil passages in the engine, maybe even in the oil passages in the lifters themselves will cause that.

I have a 2004 Toyota Tacoma. During the last 2 months when I start the truck in the morning I hear a "tac, tac, tac, tac ...." noise for 30s to 1 min than it stops when I drive away. This...


This is most likely a noisy lifter (or valve tappet). In cold weather, the clearances in the valve train open up because metal contracts due to the cold. Once the oil pressure comes up after start the noise goes away because the larger clearance fills with oil and the lifter becomes "cushioned" with the oil. The proper fix is to have the valves adjusted. I believe in your model, that is done by putting shims on the lifters. This will quiet the noisy lifters. In the short term, you can try using a lighter weight oil for cold weather. This will get the oil to the lifters faster after start up and quiet the tapping more quickly. Once the weather warms again, shift back to the normal weight.

I cant figure out whats wrong with my 1996 jeep cheroke country i have replaced the battery.starter,rotor,distributor cap,coil,crankshaft sensor,and none of these were the problem please help!


Are there any trouble codes stored in the computers memory? A code reader will allow you to read trouble codes if any exist. This is the first place any tech would start a diagnosis, otherwise we will only be guessing a repair solution.

Oil leak from rocker box on 1996jeep cherokee2.5td


Get you a new gasket for the rocker cover, make sure you clean the mating surface good,and all traces of old gasket, and silicon etc. make sure you dont overtighten the bolts to the rocker cover. the torque for the rocker cover is 35 in lbs (4nm). as far as vavle clearance it is none adjustable. A clicking valve can indicate worn lifters, sometimes an oil change will quiet down noisy lifters. If noisy lifters persist you would have to service the heads. If you decide to do that yourself you can ask for a procedure on that too later on. Removal of the head is very difficult, because you need to remove a lot of things, and require you to do a timing on the engine.

Misses when hot also lifters become noisy


The camshaft may be worn or the lifters .that explains the missing when you run it at operating temp.By the description of the oil. the reasomn the canmshaft wore out and the valve lifters is because the oil was not changed on a regular basis.
