SOURCE: 1995 ford contour lifter noise

If it had any head work done such as valve grinding. there could be a valve a tad shorter and may
result in a noise until the engine warms up. That is what i hear the problem is with mine. There
was no noise before i had the head work done.

You would have to read the tech manual to see if they are just shims or if the are a hydraulic type lifter. They would actually pump up with oil and hold slight pressure on the cam so there would not be the tappet noise associated with a solid lifter cam. Odds are they got gummed up and started tapping on you. Hopefully you marked the cylinders they came off of and placed them back in the same location on the cylinder head as originally installed. You don't want premature cam failure because of the mismatched wear patterns on the lifters. Good Luck, RAC

SOURCE: knocking or ticking in the

you are right its either a rocker arm broken or loose or it also could be a broken valve spring so look for all three While you have the valve cover off to save you coming back and looking again ... thanks Jerry

SOURCE: 1997 nissan pickup 4wd, just had timing chain

Not likely. You have a 4 cyl engine with over head cam. It has hydrolic lifters. If it wasn't making the noise before he replaced the chain, then its something he did...or didn't do. If it was making the noise before, most common reason would be 1 or more lifters not pumping up. If you have a six cyl, no one changed the timing chain, (It doesn't have one!) The 3.0 6cyl has a belt.

possible
check cam lobes are all shiny and no missing sections
if it is a valve it could be a loose valve seat insert -- normally associated with a miss in engine noise
noise could be from worn rocker bushes or the rocker face on the valve stem end

Mitsubishi l200 2.5 did 08 very noisy engine, sounds very tappety is this normal ?


It may be worn out valve lifters that are inside the engine. If you have more than 6,000 miles on the oil, valve lifters could run noisier. Changing to a high mileage type of motor oil may quite down the valve lifters noise somewhat. Synthetic oil used during the summer months could make it noisier too. If you can hear the noise while driving the car, it is not normal. Upon acceleration, if it gets noisier, you will be needing a valve job in the not to distant future.

76 351 mod 400 has a noise that sounds like the rocker arms are loose .Are they adjustable?


Yes the are adjustable, if they are the original camshaft lifters and rockers they should be hydraulic and the adjustment is 0 valve lash.

1976 is getting back there and some wear along the line someone might have changed them, remove a valve cover and see if there is a set screw on the rocker arm if there is they have been changed to a solid set and you will have to adjust them try .006 intake and .008 exhaust.

What are rocker arms?


It is not you rocker arms. It is your control arms in the back end. They are more commonly refered to as trailing arms. What happens is the bushings go bad. Nissan accualtly put out a TSB about this issue. Your rear suspension has 4 control arms. Two top, two lower. It is common for the Lower's to go out at around 100,000 to 125,000 they normally run about 115.00 a piece. I would just replace the lower ones. The uppers don't normally go out. The tall tell to this problem is about anything past 25 Mph you suddenly let off the gas it sways. Then you go to excell and it does the same thing. Almost feals like the rear dif is trying to come out from under you. What happens is the bushings go bad so when it has any slack the rear end goes out of allignment. Very easy fix costly if you don't do it yourself.

How do I replace the valve cover gaskets for a 1996 Ford Ranger w/ 3.0L Engine?


The valve covers installed on the 3.0L engine incorporate integral (built in) gaskets which should last the life of the vehicle. Replacement gaskets are available if required.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Disconnect the ignition wires from the spark plugs, but leave them attached to their wire looms.
  2. Remove the ignition wire separators from the rocker arm cover attaching bolt studs with the wires attached, then lay the wires out of the way.
  3. If the left hand cover is being removed, remove the throttle body assembly, the PCV valve and fuel injector harness stand-offs. If the right hand cover is being removed, remove the engine harness connectors, fuel injector harness stand-offs and air cleaner closure hose from the oil fill adapter.
  4. Using caution, slide a sharp thin blade knife between the cylinder head gasket surface and the valve cover gasket at the four RTV junctions. CUT ONLY THE RTV SEALER AND AVOID CUTTING THE INTEGRAL GASKET.
  5. Remove the integral gasket from the valve cover gasket channel. Note bolt/stud fasteners locations before removing gasket for correct installation. Clean gasket channel and remove any traces of RTV sealant.

To install:
  1. Align fastener holes, lay new gasket onto channel and install by hand. Install gasket to each fastener, seat fastener against cover and at the same time roll gasket around fastener collar. If installed correctly all fasteners will be secured by gasket and not fall out.
  2. Install valve cover to the engine, lightly oil all bolts and stud threads. Apply a bead of RTV sealant at the cylinder head to intake manifold rail step (two places per rail).
  3. Place the valve cover on the cylinder head and install attaching bolts and studs. Tighten the attaching bolts to specifications.

  1. Install all remaining components in reverse order of removal procedure. Connect the ignition wires to the spark plugs and reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and run to normal operating temperature, then check for oil and vacuum leaks.
