Question about 2004 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

Have a 1999 Caravan that will not turn over.

My van started ticking bad and loss power. I think it is a problem with the rocker arm asembly but the engine will not turn over now due to loss of power. I charged the battery but everytime I open the door the inside light comes on. When I insert the key and turn it no power to the dash lights or anything else. The inside light goes out as well. Cant roll windows up either. First problems Ive had with this vehicle.... please help...thanks

Have a 2006 chrysler 300, 3.5 with loud ticking noise during acceleration, also experiencing loss of power. Replaced both rocker assemblies and performance improved but ticking is still there.


sounds like bad valve seats or seals do you have a oil pressure gauge on your dash.check the pressure.then check your return ports on top of the head thats giving you the problem see if the oil is returning to the oil pan.sometimes the return ports become blocked and the oil stays on top of the head.and see if the oil supply is making up to the head.hope this helps.mark

Adjust rocker arms on 350 chevy small block


Back off on all the rocker arms and check to make sure you didn't bend any push rods then make sure you are starting on #1 Cylinder and readjust, when it starts you can finish the adjustment by backing off rocker arm nut till you here it TICK than tightentill TICK IS GONE. I do not have info on the fireing order for primary adjustment but you should be able to find on line complete instructions, Go to ASK.COM and ask for Chev 350 Valve Adjustment their are several to choose from and even YOUTUBE Videos on it.

I have an 98 Montero sport that has a "ticking"


modern engines- rockers arms don't need to be readjusted- they have hydralic lifters- if ticking loudly- you might need to change oil- either it is starting to break down or milage is high enough on vehisle to step up one grade during warmer weather

How do you tighten up rocker arms 1999 ford tarus


Locate a repair manual (CHILTONS) <-- is best; and look up the torque specifications.

Once you have located this information, take of one valve cover at a time. With the torque wrench, (engine running) tighten up each rocker arm that is "ticking" or "loose" to the proper torque spec - or until it stops ticking. You will want to work quickly so you don't start to spray oil.

You can torque these with engine off, but start engine with cover removed to tighten them up until they stop ticking.

I suggest also speaking with certified mechanic about this and if there are other certain procedures for this as well. I have personally done it this way (successfully), however, it is always best to get a second and/or third opinion. I have also had a mechanic do this as I watched him as well.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

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.
