1995 old cutlass rocker arms wont tighten?


need to know what size motor you have but the 3.1, 3.4, and 3.8 liter motors are know for the rocker arm studs striping out inside of the head so while you think your tightening it your really only turning the nut and the stud. try putting a wrench(13mm) on it and turn to see if stud is turning. if so it will need to be drilled out and a helie coil put in it

I had a ticking noise and i adjusted the rocker arm and most of it went away. Could this be the only problem? It is a 96 pontiac sunfire


if high milage motor seems fine leave it as is-not proper way to fix either have worn cam, rocker, or bad lifter. old chevy motors with car running was zero latch no ticking 3/4 to 1 turn to center lifter plunger

See if the cam or rocker arms are worn. New lifters and other worn parts won't work. Also make sure you have good oil pressure and the oil is getting to the top of the engine.

yes it is a lifter or a rocker arm, add a can of a chemical called Berryman's chemtool, drive it for a day or so and drain the oil, if that doesn't cure the noise u are going to have to replace the lifter, rocker as nessararyt,

Roker Arms


First off, do not overtighten the rocker. You will not make it any tighter and you run the risk of damaging that stud or the rocker. Compare the valve stem height to the other valve stems of the same valve type (exhaust or intake). If it's lower, you may have a broken spring or a stuck valve. Check the push rod against the other push rods, again from the same valve type. If it's lower, and your push rod is OK as you say, you may have a damaged lifter.
