Sr20de hydraulic lifter servicing and explanation. How to clean old lifters, flushing, and bleeding. Often times it is very easy to confuse chain clunk with lifter tap on older Sr20de engines. This video is specific to the majority of these motors that came with a hydraulic lifter assembly. Before installing serviced lifters, be sure to bleed ALL of the air out of them before reinstalling.


Let me know what you guys think.

I will be adding picture comparisons for the difference between RR hlas and standard non RR hlas once I get to tearing some things down and installing. I'm really looking forward to killing some of the embarrassing noise my engine has been making.

I was not aware people weren't clear on how to do this WIth the fsm.
I do bleed them almost everytime I remove the cams on some cars if people what it done.

Also hdmi engines that sit for a very long time and people swap them in I have find them full of air.
No one ever mentioned they weren't clear on it.
It is definitely wise to check and bleed out old lash adjusters when you can to reduce risk of tossing rocker arms and such

I'll admit, I haven't met too many people around Chicago who are well versed with the sr20. Most of what I have learned is because I had to teach myself, or may have read through online. I've read through the fsm a bunch of times but never visually saw how to service a lifter. The majority of my vocabulary is mostly theory and I'd like to say an above average/decent mechanic. Wish there were more people in the sr20 scene in my area, or even a decent video online, I should have done this a long time ago. Just trying to share some knowledge, seems to me like most people don't even realize this could be an issue with their cars.

Hi, I am in this same process. Do I need to use HEAVIER weight oil when bleeding the lifters? I read when Nelson suggested it, but I did not know if it is the norm when bleeding hydraulic lifters. (I run 5W-30, as per the FSM's guidance.)
