I have pretty bad lifter noise after I changed head gasket and a cylinder that won't fire it has spark

Asked by Mar 06, 2014 at 08:19 AM about the 2002 Kia Rio Base

Lifter noise is caused by lack of oil getting to them, did you double check the head gasket to make sure it had all of the oil and coolant supply and return holes in the right spot? Did you have the head checked and resurfaced before you put it back on? That might be your misfire if a valve isn't seating.
