Dodge neon 2.0 L sohc how to remove lifters from rocker arms


Ok here is the deal, the lifters are poorly designed and prone to noise or "tick", the way to silence this is not just new lifters but new rocker arm assemblies which include new lifters. Use the best parts not the cheapest ones, factory new one are improved from previous designs. If you still want to just replace the lifters you must take the rockers to a machine shop and have the lifters pressed out and replaced by them. Another suggestion is if you live in a warm climate use 10W-30W synthetic oil.

Broken lifter arm 96 honda prelude?


Interesting question. If you think a lifter arm, which I presume is also called a rocker arm, is broken, remove the valve cover and find it. All the rocker arms are visible, and should be easy to see.

Have a lifter ticking noise in my 1996 buick regal. What does it take to repair the problem


The repair depends on the exact cause. Typically one of two things happens.

A lifter fails to "pump up" and looses pressure. Sometimes oil system cleaners can help this.

The other thing that happens is wear realted, called a collapsed lifter, this issue requires replacement of the camshaft and all lifters. I recommend against replacing only a collapsed lifter, as the cam lobe usually gets damaged, as the two parts are hardened and wear against one another (cam and lifter).

It is always possible to have a rocker arm come loose. The only way to know for sure is exploritory surgery.
