1996 Chevy Cavalier 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 160000 miles
I have a 2.4 L twin overheadcam engine in my Z24.
I removed the camshaft housings after a valve tap developed but noticed nothing unusual after inspecting the lifters and cam lobes. Trying to determine if I had a bad lifter, I filled three lifters with fresh oil (1 known good lifter and 2 suspect) blocked the holes and placed them inverted in a pan and applied heat by stove.(Much to my wifes dismay)
Oil seeped from the 2 suspect lifters, but not from the known good one. Is this a way do determine if I have lifters that are not holding pressure?
