SES light came on while pulling my trailer uphill. Auto zone read a cylinder 4 misfire. Was advised to add Seafoam to the intake. It soon began taking water into the crankcase. Advance Auto suggested Blue Devil coolant additive to no avail. BD is is head gasket "fix." Replaced the intake manifold gaskets; but didn't think to check the lifters wihile I was in there. Changed oil four times then flushed engine with BG engine flush. Still have a nasty rattle...
Update! this turned out to be stuck lifters due to the Blue Devil treatment. Replaced a lifter for cylinder 4 and rebuilt the remaining 11 lifters. Runs great now...

Chevy Vortec lifter & valve tap how to repair it
this video has info on how to fix a severe valve tap or sticky lifter using
1 quart of automatic transmission fluid with 4 quarts of oil. the trans
fluid is a high detergent that loosens up sludge build up in a motor from
lack of oil changes, you will be amazed at what pouring 1 quart of trans
fluid in a neglected motor can do. the truck in this video got a double
treatment and now runs smooth with no taps and the check engine light went
out as soon as I started it. also after the second treatment I changed the
oil & filter and the clumps of sludge that were left in it broke down into
the oil from the trans fluid and it flushed it out. I
I realize I bash fram oil filters in this video and any filter wouldnt have
helped in this case because the truck was so neglected any filter would
have pluged up. howerver,,, Fram in my opinion is cheap crap.and over the
years of having hundreads of cars I can honestly say if you have 2
identical engines 1 using Fram the other using Wix or Napa the Fram motor
will die prematurely due to lack of filtering.

and hauled horse trailers most of its life. but it drove in and it drove
out all on its own.

4 inch suspension lift

4.3l Vortec V6 lifter noise? rod knock? 97 Bravada
have a look and tell me what you think. sound is coming from the passenger
side up top. so far ive replaced rocker arms with new nuts and washers,
pushrods. the head gaskets have been replaced 2 years ago along with new
lifters. 2 years ago when i replaced the head gaskets and lifters it made
that noise and had a guy come over and he sugested to tighten up the
rockers all the way and the noise went away. till now
How to fix hydraulic lash adjuster tick on miata, ford, Hyundai, Mercury, and KIA.
These exact same lifters are also are used on Ford Probe, Escort, Hyundai
Accent, Optima, Sephia, Spectra, Mazda 626, millenia, Protege, MX-6. mx-5,
mx-3, 626, Mercury Capri, and Tracer.
The stuck lifters will not allow oil pressure to build up and push down on
the cam lobe. It leaves a gap between the valve and the lifter, and your
left with a ticking sound.
So i was replacing a broken timing belt, and decided, lets pull all the
hydraulic lash adjusters and clean them.
This Miata has 200k miles, the previous owner wasnt always on time with oil
