84 dodge 600 throwing lifter

1884 dodge 600 constantly throwing lifters, replace with 87 shadow engine which required a different transmission, again throwing following arm ( what my mechanic calls it) Is a 2.2 liter, turbo charged. Was in process of fixing it up but won't go an inch further until engine problem is fixed. considering bailing out. My mechanic is even stumped, can't find any info on internet. Is there anyone out there who knows what this is. Also has a pin slap which I guess is common for this engine. Help

Thumbs down

This car is a collosal bomb (no offense) and will continue to soak you for more green than it could ever be worth.

It likely has valvetrain or lower end damage causing the issue.

Old Joe says pitch it. There is better out there for less money, effort and will provide better motoring value.

Fact is that these K car variants were lackluster from day 1.

"Nice Reliant Automobiles" (as the NYS lottery song jingle says) they are not .

"If you had a million dollars" and bought me one, I'd think you were my enemy or you were cheap

That's neat, Joe_F! I didn't know they made a Dodge 600 in
1884. A little before my time.

Maybe it was one of the original Dodge Brothers cars. Lol.

Fact is the stagecoach probably gave less trouble back then, Old Smokey .

Unfortunately these K car variants were lackluster in appearance, performance, reliability, resale value, service, parts and everything with them. They really show their age .

try replacing the rocker arm stud, nut, bearing, rocker arm itself and the pushrod and lifter; the stud threads could be warn and if thats the case everything else could be ****ed up and you would have to replace all of it...
hope this helps.

I must be misunderstanding something here !! The 2.2 L & 2.5 L engines are overhead cam engines are they not ? I've had both those engines in chrysler products, and ran the s--t out of both, and couldn't get them to blow, even with 250,000 km.( 150,000 miles ) Head gasket was the worst I had to do. Are you sure your not talking about the mitsubishi 2.6 L ?
