man im comming of the hw today nuthing unusual , as i decelerate for the offramp my car kills itself im like uhh ok then restart. when i get hope and turn the radio off i notice it clicking like madd. so i pulled in garge and pulled valve cover off . poke around a little then i put together and start same thing clicking and ideling really ruff. i pull apart again and pull off rockers and check the cam and a lifter was stuck. comes to my attention that a lifter had "mushroomed" and lodged itself in its area . ate my cam to nuthing. now i need lifters and a new cam. :-( . ordered parts 200$ hopefully this doesnt happen for a looooonnng time .
