hey guys, new to this section. Im getting my 95 ranger 4.0L worked on. The shop says that the noise that I was hearing was in fact the lifters. Now they say that in order to replace these they will definitly have to remove the intake mani, but they thru a curve at me and said the heads might have to be pulled too?? does anyone know for sure if the heads have to be removed?? thanks alot!

I haven't work on one, but it's possible. Say if the lifters are extra long and won't clear the heads as they are pulled.

The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that, you got it made.

That's a roller cam engine,so I'd imagine the spider that holds them probably won't come out with the heads on,but I'm not positive.
