bad lifter?

this problem started about a week ago. Whenever i start the motor up when its cold the car makes a weird noise from the motor and it runs really rough. This usually only lasted for about 10 seconds or so then it would go away and run smooth.

Well when i started it up yesterday the noise didnt go away for like 2 minutes or so then on the way to work it just started doing it constantly. I pulled the valve cover off and the rocker arm was completely off the pushrod and spring. The not on the stud didnt not come loose either. Does this sound like a lifter to you? What else should i check? thanks

Re: bad lifter?

CHeck the cam also. I just pulled my lifters out and found one damaged. The lobes wear mark looks funny also compared to the rest.
