How to fix a lifter?

Hey, I am hearing a clacking noise comin from under the hood, I believe it is a lifter. I am not sure if it is broke or just stuck or something, how do I go about fixing this problem, and how do I get to the lift?

Is this something new or are you just noticing it? Jeep engines tend to have a top end rattle and it does sound like a loose rocker arm.

Are you experiencing any performance issues with the motor? Is the oil pressure reading in the normal range? If you are not having any performance issues and the oil pressure is normal, I'm inclined to believe you are OK.

Can you post a video with some sound?


It ain't no fun unless you get some of it on you.
