If you ar referring to the lifter tick that many of them have, then it can be fixed by replacing the lifters. (this engine may go for years this way, other than it being anoying).

If you still want to repair:


  1. Disconnect the negative cable from the battery.
  2. Remove the air cleaner.
  3. Remove intake manifold(Refer to 9 - ENGINE/MANIFOLDS/INTAKE MANIFOLD - REMOVAL) .
  4. Remove cylinder head cover(Refer to 9 - ENGINE/CYLINDER HEAD/CYLINDER HEAD COVER(S) - REMOVAL).
  5. Remove rocker arm assembly and push rods(Refer to 9 - ENGINE/CYLINDER HEAD/ROCKER ARM / ADJUSTER ASSY - REMOVAL). Identify push rods to ensure installation in original location.
  6. Remove the cylinder head(Refer to 9 - ENGINE/CYLINDER HEAD - REMOVAL).


  7. Remove bolt from tappet retainer (1).
  8. Remove tappet retainer (1).
  9. Pull tappet out of bore with a twisting motion. If all tappets are to be removed and reused, identify tappets to ensure installation in original location.
  10. Check camshaft lobes for abnormal wear.
