Valve tap cause

Most engines now use hydraulic lifters and they can leak a little, this causes space between then lifter and the push rod. This results in a tapping noise that goes away when they get warm or fill back up.

Ticking in engine

ticking noise from an engine is more than likely the rockers under the valve cover. after a long period of time, the lifters and the push rods wear and cause fatigue in the metal and also the lifters can also start sticking from ling usage and dry oil getting stuck inside them

The noise (without hearing it) is hard to answer but it could be a sticking Lifter, Low Engine Oil, Broken Internal Component, Spun Bearing, Transmission, and the list goes on and on.

If you can tell me what the code it, I can help you a little more. P0300 -P0306 are Misfire Codes. I am curious what you have

How to get a vavle lifter to stop making nosie in my 1995 for exploer?

You may not have a lifter noise. I seem to recall reading about the 4.0L (not sure if its just 4.0L that were affected or sure about years affected as well) having bad push rods that would mushroom on the tips and cause what sounds like a lifter noise.

They would need to be inspected to know for sure. And if this is the case some hardened push rods should be installed as well as rockers. The rockers could be damaged from the push rods and they also wear in with the push rods so old rockers and new push rods may not mate well.

Engine peck in 99 s10 2.2 liter

If your engine has a bit of a tick to it it could be a sign that your timing is off just a little. It can also indicate that you are either low on oil or that you need an oil change. The tick could also be coming from your lifters witch could mean you have a spring going bad or possibly need to have them ajusted. However if the noise is coming from the lower end of your engine this could mean big problems such as a rod going out and for your sake I hope that is not the case. I hope this is helpful.

Engine rattle betweem 2-35k rpm. connecting rod bearing was replaced two weeks ago

Have you ever had the lifters checked?
lifters can make a heck of a noise if a lifter is dished and the push rod is got a lot of slop in it.

Lifter pecking

as old as the car is...I'm not surprised.   You have a sticking or worn hydraulic lifter.  You my try an engine flush followed by a oil change. Or totally ignore it.  Is your oil pressure good?
