if your car needs major work done to it don't spend a fortune fixing it but usually you can drive the car "into the ground" meaning until it dies with normal maintance like oil changes and that stuff with the lifters being bad. what you should do when you hear the noise from the lifters starting take your foot off the gas for a minute and then slowly give it more gas.
There could be several reasons why you have a noisy hydraulic valve lifter. One reason could be worn our parts in the entire valve train. A loose rocker arm could also cause noise.
There is no valve adjustment on the 2.4 litre 4G64 engine as it has hydraulic lifters fitted, if they are noisy then there are oil additives to clean them or they may need replacing.
remove intake and valve covers, loosen rocker arms, remove push rods, and take the lifters out, replace lifters and put everything back to torque spec. Book time is about 3 hours.
There is no adjustment for hydraulic valve lifters. Lifters can be noisy on some of these models. After ascertaining there is no mechanical damage/broken parts, change engine oil and add 1/2 bottle of STP Oil Treatment (or more if necessary) until lifters are quieter.
To replace the valve lifters on a Cavalier, remove the intake manifold, valve covers and rocker arms. Remove the heads of the lifters using needle-nose pliers.
valve lifters? it sho do
there are 2 lifters for every cylinder, one for intake valve and one for exhaust valve.
how to replace lifters on a 03 grand am
The most effective way to clean valve lifters is to disassembled the vehicle's top end and remove the lifters. They can then be cleaned with a mild solvent, lubricated, and re-installed.
If we are talking about valve lifters, remove cylinder head and pushrods and lifters will be excessable.
All 1971 VW Beetle engines were manufactured with solid valve lifters.
The purpse of valve lifters is exactly what it says, to lift the valve.
Too little oil makes lifters noisy. Without enough oil the lifters can't pressurize enough to close the gaps in the valve train. Driving too long with the condition can make it permanent even after adding more oil.
There is no valve adj on a 4.0l it has hydraulic valve lifters.
Yes, but you need to find out why they are knocking. May just need a valve lash adjustment.

one per valve
Valve adjustment is generally a thing of the past after the introduction of hydraulic lifters (no adjustment). In 1994 your engine should have hydraulic lifters and are not adjustable.
As you give very little information as to make, model, engine size or year, and exactly when it is ticking, this is just an educated guess. Normally this is valve noise caused by valve clearance issues. If it has solid lifters then they need adjusting. If it has hydraulic lifters, they may be clogged and sticking. If it has hydraulic lifters try adding a can of Seafoam engine tune to a fresh oil filter change. It can be purchased at many auto parts stores. Drive the car for 500 miles and change the oil and filter again. You may have to do this more than once to remove the deposits in the lifters. If this does not work, then the valve stems or lifters are worn, and need adjustment or possible replacement.
Assuming solid lifters (as opposed to hydraulic, self-adjusting lifters) you could burn valves if the lifters are adjusted too tight or have excessive valve clatter if the lifters are adjusted too loose.
Noisy valve train. Remove the valve cover and inspect the valve train.
yes but keep your oil topped up and try get it fixed
