valve adjustment?

Recommended Posts

Honda dealer said I needed valve adjustment because of noise when I start car. I disappears when I start driving. Anyone know way to find out if you really need valve adjustment?

The ONLY way to really know if the engine valves are out of adjustment is to remove the valve cover and check the clearances manually with a feeler gauge. Id youtube it.. im sure theres a lot of videos showing you how its done. By the way... the engine should be COLD when doing this proceedure to get the best valve clearance measurements.


Hope this helps a little.. :)
