How do you fix a rocker arm if it is loose or broken in your car?
Your best bet is to buy the manual. There are multiple ways of adjusting rockers and it depends on the vehicle. Your loose rocker arm may also be an indication of a bent push rod, bent valve, or worn out cam.
there are 2 types of rocker arm studs pressed in and threaded in. if it is pressed i suggest buying the same size threaded stud, tapping the hole and using 2 stacked nuts screw it into the hole in the head. if its threaded just remove the old one and thread in the new one, be sure to check torque value for this application
answer if a rocker arm is broken, u need to remove rocker cover the rocker arms are all on one tube bolted to the head remove the nuts that secure this tube slide as many rocker arms as need to get to broken rocker arm, off the tube replace with new rocker arm replace others that u needed to remove. sit tube with rocker arms back in place making sure that u align all rocker arms to the proper place tighten securing nuts to proper torque over tightening will break the studs then adjust rockers to specs if engine has hydraulic lifters you will not have to adjust replace rocker covers using new gaskets if the rocker ram is loose, adjust to specs if engine has hydraulic ligters, torque to specs job is done
The rocker arm is a reciprocating lever that conveys radial movement from the cam lobe into linear movement at the poppet valve to open it. One end is raised and lowered by the rotating lobes of the camshaft (either directly or via a lifter (tappet) and pushrod) while the other end acts on the valve stem. When the camshaft lobe raises the outside of the arm, the inside presses down on the valve stem, opening…
It varies greatly with the car you purchase. A car such as a Hyundai, or Kia, will loose plenty the first year. A car such as a Honda, or Toyota will loose less. A Lexus will loose even less. Resale value determines how much it will loose. Also a luxury car such as a Cadillac or Lincoln will loose a higher percentage of value than an inexpensive car.
Let's assume the person to be hit is walking perpendicular to the car, and let's assume that the car is a standard four-door sedan. 10mph: Bruises, maybe a broken leg or a broken arm. If the person falls on their head, a possible skull injury. 20mph: Most likely one broken leg, if not two. If the person falls on their head, a serious skull injury. 40mph: Serious injury. Probable death. 60+mph: Death.
Warm up engine. With the valve cover removed, loosen one rocker arm at a time until it clatters. Now, slowly tighten that rocker arm until it stops and give it a 1/4 turn. Go to the next one. That's it. You'll make quite a mess that way, but it will work if you don't mind oil all over yourself and the car. Check out the article I wrote on this topic for the details on…
