Tick,knock,rattle Fixed Finnally Broke Pistons

Well if you have a rattle tick knock, that nobody can pinpoint bet its this replaced lifters first, only to find this week later, very very common as im told now very poor quality Jeep.Never seen this in anything else and talking to local dealers that is very common and why at least here in western ny not many on lots nobody buys them at auction all sound like mine did.

Sorry buddy typed up for me, but after much misdiagnosis found broken pistons and also found that they are hard to find. No local parts house could get them and jeep even was giving me the runaround.Finnally bought eningine from a 2000 wrangler and found it would not work so pulled all pistons from it as it only had 60,000 miles on it and used in my original.Runs great now.
