I am rebuilding the engine on my SW2. On 14 of the lifters, as I press the plunger, a bit of oil comes out, and a spring action returns the plunger. The other 2 lifters don’t move much at all, little oil comes out. The plunger is in the same position as the rest, up about .3".
So I figure might need 2 lifters, might as well get all of them. Saturn wanted about $600 for all of them, so I just bought 2.
On the new lifters the plunger is much higher, and it provides much more resistance to movement than the old lifters. Some oil comes out but not much, So now I wonder if the rest are OK.
The lifters came in a box of 8, I double checked with the parts counter on the price, they said yep it’s 37 bucks each.
So do I need all the lifters, and does the Saturn Dealer have the price right?
