Hello antcarrol,
I'm, thinking you may mean cam rocker arms (lobe followers) and like the saying goes, "1 picture is worth a thousand words". These arms fit below cam shaft and sit over valve springs with a small round disc shaped spacer. These spacers are notched so the follower rest on valve. The other end of follower sits atop of the lash adjuster, The top of this adjuster is globed shaped to fit securely to the follower while allowing the correct lash adjustment by two hex nuts on the adjuster.
Confused yet? Well its not easier said than done. If you have access to a shop manual hopefully picture will help Good luck and I hope I have helped. Kam

I am replacing the head gasket on my 2000 pontiac grand am 3.4L engine. The push rods got mixed up and i need to know if the shorter rods go on the intake or exhaust side?


As you assemble things, it will become obvious as to whether you're attempting to put in a wrong length push rod. If it is wrong, it will appear that you need to adjust the rocker arm way different than it was originally to make it work. They just will not readily interchange. I think you'll do just fine.

P 2647"A" Rocker Arm Actuator


Your going to need a air pressure regulator or better yet if the ECM found fault price it and replace it
  1. Start the engine, and let it run for 5 minutes, then turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0).
  2. Remove the cylinder head cover.
  3. Set the No. 1 piston at top dead center (TDC).
  4. Move the intake secondary rocker arm A for the No. 1 cylinder. The secondary rocker arm A should move independently of the secondary rocker arm B.
    1. If the intake secondary rocker arm A moves freely, go to step 5.
    2. If the intake secondary rocker arm A does not move, remove the secondary rocker arms as an assembly, then check that the pistons in the secondary rocker arms move smoothly. If any rocker arm needs replacing, replace the secondary rocker arms as an assembly, then retest.
    3. Repeat step 4 on the remaining intake secondary rocker arms with each piston at TDC. When all the secondary rocker arms pass the test, go to step 6.
    4. Check that the air pressure on the shop air compressor gauge indicates over 400 kPa (4.0 kgf/cm2, 57 psi).
    5. Inspect the valve clearance.
    6. Install a 10 x 1.0 mm adapter to the inspection hole, then connect the air pressure regulator
  5. With the specified air pressure applied, move the intake secondary rocker arm A for the No. 1 cylinder. The secondary rocker arm A and secondary rocker arm B should move together. If the intake secondary rocker arm A does not move, remove the secondary rocker arms as an assembly, and check that the pistons in the secondary rocker arms move smoothly. If any rocker arm needs replacing, replace the secondary rocker arms as an assembly, then retest.

Oil get into spark plug well. need to know how to replace the valve cover gasket on a 2003 dodge intrepid sxt . clean sparkplugs well of all oil and replaced sparkplugs


Hi
these are the things you need to do.

Allow the car engine to cool by letting the car sit idle for several hours. Lift the hood and disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the upper intake manifold assembly. Using the spark plug tool, remove the spark plugs. Disconnect the spark plug wires. This can be accomplished by pulling straight out on the boot. Locate the cylinder head and disconnect the closed ventilation system and evaporation control system from it.

Locate the left cylinder head cover and remove the DIS coil. Using the wrench, loosen and remove the rocker arm cover mounting bolts. Carefully remove the rocker arm cover from the cylinder head. Remove the gasket cover. Using the screwdriver, gently nudge the gasket to remove it from the seating area.

Using the automotive cleaner, remove any particles, oil or other remnants that were left by the old gasket. Place the new gasket in the gasket seating area. Using the torque wrench, tighten the rocker arm cover fasteners. Reverse the steps used to remove the parts

Complete the maintenance by adding oil to the car and allowing it to run idle for 10 to 15 minutes.

Mixed up my rocker arms when replacing my head geasket


the arms for INTAKE should all match, and the arms for EXHAUST should all match. I dont think you can put them on wrong, if you are hitting a piston you need to verfiy the cam timing, I think that is where your problem is.

Oil keep getting on spark plugs and car will not start.I replaceed valve cover gasket but oil continue to get on plugs.I did leave off small o- ring.I did not know where they go.


You should replace the rocker arm seal. Remove valve cover and take off the rocker arm assembly. There is about a 2" O'ring for each plug port.

To replace rockerarm,do i need to remove the head?first 1 left side facing the car.


You should only have to remove the rocker assembly,the head bolts ussually hold the assembly on,but even if you remove them the head gasket will stay sealed.You'll have to get the torque specs and bolt down sequence,and check to see if its recomended to replace the head bolts.When you dissassemble the rocker assembly lay the parts out in sequece and reassemble in the correct order.Hope this helps.
