Actually the 96 cavalier i just rebuilt for a guy has an Over head valve engine in it meaning it has a cam inside the block with lifters and pushrods running up to the rockers up top.To start off make sure your engine is set to TDC #1 cylinder adjust the rocker nuts to 0 lash then 1/4 turn to tighten .Then put engine on TDC #3 do the same thing . Then cylinder #4 TDC . Then #2 TDC. Once you have done this on all 4 cylinders install the valve cover and it should fire right up. to do so you will have to remove the valve cover on the top of the engine. it would be a good idea to go to a parts store and purchase a repair manuel for your car if you have never done this type of work.
If we are talking about valve lifters, remove cylinder head and pushrods and lifters will be excessable.
how do you ajust the lifters on a Chevy s 10. its making a taping noise
It has adjustable rockers.
A 97 Chevy Cavalier uses standard hydraulic type lifters. They utilize oil pressure to control the height of the lifters and provide a small clearance across the camshaft.
No, If it runs good just drive it; spend the money on something you need.
There is no way 2 adjust the clutch. The only way is 2 replace them. Clutch & pressure plate & throw out bearing, replace them all in one shot!!
do you mean cavalier hand brake?
How do you remove and replace wiper switch on 2002 Chevy Cavalier
They are not adjustable.
If it has hydraulic lifters, you do not adjust the valves.
There is no adjustment- the engine has hydraulic valve lifters.
All engines in a 2001 Lumina use hydraulic lifters. These lifters are self adjusting. Lifter related valvetrain noise is most commonly caused by failure to replace the lifters after destroying them by excessive driving with water-contaminated oil.
