Umm .. I think that I am missing something here. You have/think you have a busted up lifter? Fixing it with mistery oil?? What is that kind of fix?

All Jeep engines have a little problem with the oil pump .. not enough pressure to reach the back cylinders properly. Adding oil will raise the level and allow a better supply.

If your lifters are going, its fairly easy to get at them .. just remove the valve cover and check them. Took me about 1/2 hour to clear the way to remove the valve cover (only to find I had bent rods).

I just replaced the lifters on my 89 yj...I had to remove the head to do it...
