Ok this is my first post here it goes. My 2000 wrangler w/ 4.0, and 105k miles is kinda running rough well ticking to be exact, and i was thinking about adjusting the valves. I have put all types of cleaners( expect the lucas which i wanna do soon) in the gas tank, and have tryed different types of oil additives but still kinda ticks if you know what I mean. Well i have been around a few of the 4.0s and some 4.2's and they usally seem to kinda tick around 100k miles. So i was wondering if there are anyway of getting rid of that sound. Also has anyone ever adjusted the valves and if so what height should i adjust them to. Does anyone else have this same problem and know a solution to it. I don't think it's a big deal because my Dad's cherrokee did the same thing around 100K and we sold it at around 200k and still kinda ticked and ran very well. I just wanna try to get that ticking to go away. And is jeep coming out with a diesil wrangler or what!
I probably don't count, but my lifters on my 4 cyl make noise for a little, then shut up. Very annoying. I'm thinking about doing an adjustment, but I wouldn't know where to begin. So for now I'll sit back and watch this forum...

Awesome i'm gonna try to go and get me a stethascope. Then listen in to the injectors and see if that is the problem. I also put some lucas injector cleaner in there today and it really help quiet my engine a good bit.
