With such a late model car I suspect you have hydraulic tappets which means the clearance is automatically adjusted when you start

well, I can see ur message has been here for quite some time. Most probably you got the answer to ur request.
I just did the valve clearance on the engine of my SJ413 that has the 1000cc engine of an SJ410 :
When cold: 0.13mm Intake and 0.18mm Exhaust
Engine sounded well and worked fine after that.
Enjoy

Did you pump up the lifters with oil? They are what oils the valves. As the motor runs they act as pumps and hydrolic shock absorbers at the same time. They pump oil up through the push rods. So when you try to adjust them they collapse and don't fill back up.

A drill press and push rod is the best way, tighten the pushrod into the chuck. Leave it off. then place the lifter in a small bowl of oil and press it down with the lever on drill. do it over and over until it gets hard to pump.

How to adjust tappets


You have asked a very big question. Adjusting the tappets is another way of saying adjusting the valve clearances.

Lots of engines these days are fitted with hydraulic tappets that are self-adjusting. Some engines are overhead camshaft types with bucket tappets and the clearances are adjusted by measuring and selecting different thickness shims. The shims are sometimes under the bucket and sometimes over. The former is a fairly big and complex job to adjust and the latter is fiddly and requires much patience.

Traditional designs using adjusting screws and locknuts exist on all manner of engine types and once the principle of which one to adjust when is learned, these are relatively straightforward.

I strongly suggest you discover first what sort of tappets you need to learn to adjust, learn something about the way the engine works and why the tappets need periodic adjustment and then pay somebody to show you how to do the job so next time you will be able to do it yourself.
Adjusting the tappets is one of the core skills of the mechanic and it is learned better by demonstration and understanding than from a book. No book can adequately describe when a feeler blade has a good or a bad "feel"...

Good luck!

I'm looking for the Toyota corrola 1.6 4AF engine valve clearance


will need a micrometer, valve clearance adjustment tool set for shimmed lifters,small magnetic arm, appropriate shim selecting charts (manufacturer will have this if you can get the nec. measurements).
Measure thickness of shims removed (using micrometer) and use this formula where T=Thickness of old shim; A=Valve clearance measured; N=Thickness of new shim required.
Intake valves: N = T + (A - 0.02 mm (0.008 in.)) Exh. valves: N = T + (A - 0.25 mm (0.010 in.))
Then you need to find shims as close as possible to the calculated values.
Valve clearances (cold) are as follows: Intake0.15 - 0.25 mm (0.006 - 0.010 in.) Exhaust0.20 - 0.30 mm (0.008 - 0.012 in.)
Note, if you are not familiar with precision measuring using a micrometer, this may be better left to a trained tech. These are high revving little power plants and you don't want a problem at 8K rpm.

U.S.A?
open hood , look up. see white sticker, see clearances.?
off online F.S.M
Valve clearance specification when cold :
59 to 77deg F or 15 to 25deg C (engine temps)
Intake: 0.0063 to 0.0094 inch (0.16 to 0.24mm)
Exhaust: 0.0123to 0.0153 inch (0.31to 0.39mm)
you must remove the bucket,tappet , to change lash.
MIKE IT (that means a micrometer)
then buy shims or new buckets to fit. (generic answer)
the book says buy correct tappet after measuring, yours.
and it's out of range, and doing the math first.

that is it.

How to adjust the valves on a 1993 toyota camry 2.2


It is not an easy process. It has cam buckets with shims under the cam lobes. You need to adjust them with different thickness shims. you need to measure the clearances then change the shims to adjust them. This may be able to be done with a special tool to hold down the valve otherwise the cam shafts need to be removed. I would reccomend checking the clearances whilst the valve bucket is at the back of the cam and if the clearance is close to that reccomended it will be ok. If they are out a long way have a Toyota specialist adjust them. Often they will not need adjusting for the life of the engine.

What is the difference between hot and cold vavle clearances


When it is stated that valve clearance should be set when hot, you first adjust the clearance on the cold engine after assembly to the hot setting specs if they are the only ones given, then let the vehicle warm up to operating temperature. Then adjust the clearances again.
If it is just a tune-up(undisturbed engine), let the engine warm up to operating temperature, then adjust.
The reason is that metal expands as it heats up, which affects the valve clearance.

How do you adjust the valves on a 22re


from autozone.com


ADJUSTMENT

22R and 22R-E
See Figures 3, 4, 5 and 6

  1. Start the engine and warm it up to normal operating temperature.
  2. Turn the engine OFF . Remove the air cleaner and housing, along with the hot air and cold air intake ducts.



CAUTION Components will be hot. The engine head, block and radiator will be very hot.

  1. Remove any other hoses, cables, or wires attached to the valve cover. The valve cover (or cylinder head cover) is the domed steel item with the oil filler in it.
  2. Remove the small nuts holding the valve cover, then lift the cover off. Retrieve the rubber gasket and put it aside; it can be reused if not damaged or crushed out of shape. Beware of hot oil dripping from the inside of the cover.
  3. Use a large wrench on the crankshaft pulley bolt to turn the engine clockwise until the timing mark on the pulley to 0 on the scale. Turning the engine will be easier if the spark plugs are removed, but this is not required.



CAUTION Do not attempt to align the engine by using the ignition switch to turn the engine. Doing will splash hot oil onto everything in the area, including you.

  1. Check that the rockers on No.1 cylinder are loose and the rockers on No.4 are under tension. (No.1 is closest to the radiator; No. 4 is closest to the firewall.) If this is true, the engine is aligned with No.1 piston at top dead center. If it is not true, turn the engine one full revolution clockwise and realign the timing mark at zero; recheck the rockers.
  2. Adjust the clearance 0.008 in. (0.20mm) intake and 0.012 in. (0.30mm) exhaust. Insert a feeler gauge and check for proper clearance between the top of the valve stem and the bottom of the rocker arm on the No. 1 intake valve. To adjust, loosen the locknut on the end of the rocker arm and turn the adjusting screw until the clearance is correct. Tighten the locknut and recheck the clearance; there should be a slight drag felt when the feeler gauge is pulled through the gap. Repeat the procedure for No 1 exhaust, No 2 intake and No. 3 exhaust.

  1. Turn the crankshaft pulley one full rotation clockwise until the marks align at 0 and for the remaining valves.
5921560.gif

Fig. Fig. 6: Adjust the second set of valves the same as the first

  1. Clean the valve cover thoroughly with a lint-free rag. Wipe any oil off the cylinder head edges in the area of the valve cover gasket.
  2. Fit the gasket into the valve cover, making sure it is not crimped or twisted. If the half-moon rubber plugs came out of the valve cover, clean them and apply sealant to the part of the plug contacting the valve cover; install the half-moon plug.

The use of sealants on the valve cover gasket is not recommended.
  1. Install the valve cover onto the head. Make certain is squarely seated and not pinching any adjacent wires or cables.
  2. Install the valve cover retaining nuts. Tighten them to 43-60 inch lbs. (5-7 Nm) This is little more than finger-tight; overtightening will deform the cover and cause leaks.
  3. Connect the lines, hoses and cables which were removed for access. Make certain electrical and ignition wires are firmly held by their clips or brackets.
  4. Install the air cleaner with the hoses and duct work.
  5. If still in place, remove the wrench and socket from the crankshaft pulley.
