Q: How to change the lifters

asked by on August 20, 2016

Can you tell me how to change he lifters please

My car has 115000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

In order to replace the valve lifters, removal of the valve covers and rocker arm assemblies is required. The job can be a little extensive and many of the fasteners removed cannot be reused or they may cause damage to the engine. I wouldn’t advise on going at this repair alone if you are not experienced since the job can be a bit more involved. Have an expert diagnose any issues and perform the repair for you if you need some assistance.
