'94 Wrangler Sahara Lifters Question
 
So, my family and I have decided to purchase our friend's Jeep, a 1994 Wrangler Sahara. Overall, she's in good condition and for the price she was a steal. However, she has a slight knocking sounding that's similar to a miss. We figure it's most likely the lifters, and we were wondering if they're adjustable lifters stock in this model, in which case we can fix the problem (well, hopefully).

We do not currently have the rig so most information is extremely limited right now. But if there's any information you need just tell me and I'll see what I can do.

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum!
No the rocker arms are not adjustable.

They do loosen up. Lifters do colapse. You need to get under the valve cover and see where it's coming from. The other thing it might be it's timing chain slap.

Lifters would give more like a ticking sound rather than a knocking sound. Knock would be more like timing chain. Just my 2 cents.
