Likely a stuck ring allowing blowby from the cylinder.
They are not adjustable.
Follow the path from the exhaust port on the head. That will show you which is the exhaust rocker, which leads to the exhaust pushrod, which leads to the exhaust tappet.
The torque specification for the rocker arm nut on a 1997 Chevy Cavalier is 22 foot pounds. This is the equivalent of 30 newton meters.
The 1985 Chevrolet Corvette rocker arms will have an adjustment screw on top of each rocker arm. Turning the adjustment screw will change the height of the rocker arm.
22 ft lbs torque on the rocker arm nuts is all that is required.
MUST be done HOT valve stem to rocker: Inlet: .30mm, Exhaust: .30mm camshaft to rocker: Inlet: .19mm, Exhaust: .19mm.... EFI have hydraulic tappits.
Yes. must be done hot. Valve stem to rocker : Inlet .30mm Exhaust .30mm Camshaft to rocker: Inlet .19mm Exhaust .19mm EFI have hydraulic tappits
16 8 exhaust and 8 intake
This 2.4L dont have rocker arms and push rods.
valve or rocker clearence for a 1995 chevy 2.2

with the rocker cover removed, try pushing down on the pushrod end of the rocker arm. if it moves ,the lifter is bad
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.
From the front of the head it's EIIEEIIE. This is the same on both sides - (I=Intake, E=Exhaust) With the valve covers off the rocker that aligns with the exhaust port is the exhaust the other will align with the intake manifold runner this would be your intake
The up and coming Country Rocker
If you take a valve cover off, the rocker arm that lines up with an intake runner, is intake, and the ones that line up with exhjaust ports, are exhaust.
Look at the rocker arm stands[where the rockers bolt down to the head] some are higher.Thats where the long rods go,The low stands are for the short rods. Hope this helps if you already bolted and torqued the cylinder head,stand right at the passenger side and draw an imaginary line along the six rocker arms.you will notice that three are at the same distance .the three that are closer to the exhaust manifold ,those are the exhaust rocker arms.the exhaust rocher arms are the longer ones.
Some combinations might benefit from this. Difficult to evaluate without a dyno.
V-8 engine has 16, 8 exhaust and 8 intake. V-6 has 12 6 exhaust 6 intake.
The Chevrolet 350 engine (1967-2003) uses adjustable hydraulic lifters that are individually adjusted by means of the rocker arm nut. The rocker arm nuts are not torqued down. Typically the rocker is tightened down to 0 lash then the rocker nut is turned in one full additional turn.
There isn't a torque setting. You adjust the valves by tightening each rocker arm until there is no clatter and then tighten them 1/2 turn more.
The rocker arm torque specifications, for your 1990 4.3 liter Chevrolet engine, is 15 pounds per square inch. The rocker arm should be torqued in five pound intervals.
intake short push rod, exhaust long push rod. put short push rod on rocker closes to intake manifold.
