    Never use Regular Hydraulic oil, it will harm the very costly hydro, they are made to be used with full synthetic oil.

1992 Plymouth Voyager valve adjustment

Your car has hydraulic valves, which means they are not adjustable.
If they are clattering, you may need to change the oil (If it is dirty) and run some cleaner through the motor.
What I mean is, add the cleaner to the fresh oil and filter you put in the motor.
50 years ago, we used to add a quart of automatic transmission fluid to the oil to clean the motor.
Automatic transmission fluid is basically colored detergent.
We would then drain the oil and transmission fluid when it got dirty, like maybe 500 or 1000 miles.
You do not want to put too much oil in the motor, so you would substitute the tranny fluid for the last quart of oil.
Be blessed.
