NO, the engine is an overhead camshaft the rocker arms ride directly on the camshaft so their is no need for a lifter, by the way the valve lash should be .003-.005 of an inch.

Does this car take a valve lash adjustment and what are the settings


Your car has hydraulic lifters. Hydraulic lifters just means that it uses engine oil to control the valve clearances using a bucket and shim arrangement.
Here's a generic image of what a hydraulic lifter can look like:25949035-hsh3lir2aljnaf1jzrgt1uh1-5-0.jpg

If the car makes a tapping sound at start up, this points to a problem in the camshaft area - including the hydraulic lifers/shims. Valve clearances are controlled by the lifters and shims. It could also be a worn camshaft - the lobes can become rounded.

Usually, there is no adjustment possible with most hydraulic lifters. Replacement (usually) means you have to remove the camshaft, though I am by no means certain about your particular model.

If you have the tools and ability, remove the rocker cover and have a look at things.

25949035-hsh3lir2aljnaf1jzrgt1uh1-5-1.jpg The image above shows a camshaft - the lobe is worn and rounded. When this happens valve clearance is excessive and may lead to a tapping noise. Engine efficiency is also affected.

The image below shows hydraulic lifters (example only..).
The lifter on the left has a 'dished' surface - wear caused by the camshaft or the lifter not being able to 'turn' in its bore.
25949035-hsh3lir2aljnaf1jzrgt1uh1-5-3.jpg The usual cause of this is (a) short trips where the engine hasn't had a chance to warm up properly and pump oil to the camshaft area (b) poor oil/infrequent oil changes (c) stuck lifter.

Before you spend money on parts or repairs, first try adding some oil flush to the engine to clear out carbon and 'sticky' deposits.


25949035-hsh3lir2aljnaf1jzrgt1uh1-5-10.jpg
... follow the instructions on the bottle...
Then change your engine oil and add something like a 'valve train additive' - this will try and quieten the tapping noise.
The (Ebay) link below will give you an idea of what additives are available (and so will your local car accessory shop).

Try the cheapest and easiest first. If that doesn't work .. unless you are confident that you can inspect, diagnose and replace parts .. give a mobile mechanic a call. Those guys are usually quite good.

Can a 95 Suzuki esteem engine work with 89 Suzuki sidekick engine parts like the Pistons, rod bearing , and pin


no at all.
the 89 sidekick has a G16A engine
the esteem uses a J18 or G16B engine.

the G16A parts match G16A parts.
the B engines, have special pistons, fly cut for valve clearance.
mixing A and B parts will not work.
A = 8valve
B = 16valve
the J18 is 1.8L and is twin cam and totally different engine.

why not find a good short block? and build from there?
in the USA (car is rare )but all G16 blocks can befound
from 1989 to 1998, a 10 year span on trackers and sidekicks.
and esteems.
next time post displacements, so we can know what is there.

What is the location for the hydraulic lifters on the Jeep grand Cheerokee


Lifters are internal to the engine. They sit on top of the camshaft, which has lobes (egg-shaped ovals machined into the camshaft) that are oriented at various degrees of a 360-degree rotation. When rotated the camshaft's lobes contact the lifters, raising them upwards so that the push rods that sit on the lifters also raise and force the rockers to contact and push on the top of the valve stem causing that valve to open into the cylinder below it. When lifters become weak, they may cause a distinct tapping sound to occur. A mechanic or service technician will immediately recognize this sound and advise you that something is wrong with the lifters. It may be the lifters themselves or it could be other causes. Replacement or servicing of hydraulic lifters should be left to professionals or very knowledgeable consumers.

X25xe noisey lifter


Sounds like a bad lifter or a bad lobe on a camshaft. Not real familiar with the brand, sometimes you need to pull off the valve cover if it is a pushrod design and check with fingers on rocker arms while engine runs.

But if this is an overhead cam you would need to pull the camshaft and look at cam lobes. Then look for flattened lifter face. Some overhead cams can have lifter discs to adjust gap between lifter and camshaft. Some of the old VW engines used this system. It worked pretty well, but you needed discs on hand to make precise changes.

I just rebuilt my Sidekick engine, four cylinder 8 valve Sidekick. I had NAPA rebuild my head. After putting it all together I adjust the 1,2,5, and 7 valves at TDC, but when I rotate to do 3,4,6 and 8,...


Did you pump up the lifters with oil? They are what oils the valves. As the motor runs they act as pumps and hydrolic shock absorbers at the same time. They pump oil up through the push rods. So when you try to adjust them they collapse and don't fill back up.

A drill press and push rod is the best way, tighten the pushrod into the chuck. Leave it off. then place the lifter in a small bowl of oil and press it down with the lever on drill. do it over and over until it gets hard to pump.

Lifter noise.


since the 4.2L is a push rod engine, you have the 4.6L or 5.4L which the valve train system is the same. The lifter can be removed without removing the camshaft by using two special tools that can be purchased from any tool house that sells special tools in your area. Tool 1 is a spacer to prevent the valve from traveling too far (damage to seal), Tool 2 is a valve spring compressor, that uses the camshaft as a fulcrum to depress the valve and spring enough to remove the rocker assembly, use a plastic pen to determine piston location before using the compressor tool, you want the piston approximately 1-2 inches below TDC, once the rocker assembly is removed the lifter can be pulled out the top. It is very improtant that the rockers and lifters be kept together by location (ie. exhaust number 3 rocker and lifter together) and installed back in thier original positions. If you can not get the special tools, then the only other option is to remove the cams. Hope this helps, let me know
