LIFTERS

1991 Jaguar XJ6

Engine Mechanical problem

My Jag runs well but there is a lot of lifter noise. Sounds like a sewing machine. Can the lifters be adjusted?
Thanks

No, the lifters are self adjusting. They may be worn to the point where they can't maintain pressure or, the cam lobe(s) may be worn. You check the cam by pulling the valve cover.
