84 CJ-7 Engine Noise
I started looking through the BBS for some tips on replacing my lifers. But, the more I read, the less sure I was that lifters were my problem. The symptoms are a very noticable clickety-clack that sounds like it comes from the top of the engine (under the valve cover - towards the back of the engine), low oil pressure, and significant blow-by into the air intake, all when it warms up. The oil pressure is only 7 or 8 once it gets good and warmed up. I've had this Jeep for about seven years, and it has always had these problems, and they never seem to get any worse. Oil additives have little, if an affect.
A long time Jeep mechanic once told me not to worry about it, but I guess I am just too uptight. Any thoughts or advice?
