I have an Explorer that has the x engine in it with lifters rattling. How hard is that to change the lifters?

Hi for one have you ever taken a modern engine apart, if you have you should know that there are a lot of special tools to use and if you don't have the right tools it makes it a heck of a lot harder or impossible to do the job if i am thinking of the right motor here it is and over head cam right and has a rocker that pushes on the lifters what i mean by special tool is a tool that pushes on the lifter so the rocker can come out,then the lifter should come right out but don't start something you really can't do trust me and don't get offended it will cost twice as much to have someone else do it the second time email me if you want myersfirebird@gmail.com Adam Myers

The Oil pump is clogged with sludge so it is not the lifters. sorry for bothering you.

it is not that hard but you must know the tourqe specs on the lifters take the valve cover off and take the old one out there are two bolts in each when you put the new ones in you have a tightening pattern you can find out from the parts store they can print out all the specs and pattern
