My 95 Cougar was making some odd noises on the passenger bank and at first I thought it was a timing issue because my scan tool showed it was running very advanced at idle. After removing the valve cover earlier today I found a cam follower laying on top of the head. Undamaged, just chillin. I pulled the matching lifter and couldn't get it to collapse by hand. Is that typical? What would cause the follower to just come off like that?
