Are the valves adjustable on the 1990 3.0L? I

Are the valves adjustable on the 1990 3.0L? I hear a ticking in the valve cover of a truck I want to buy. Also How do I find out if the one time free head gasket job has been done? lastly, is it true that toyota replaced the beds because of the rusting issue?

Thanks in advance,

Mike

1) The valves are adjustable, but they are of the shim-type adjustment. You will need to obtain the proper shims from a dealership parts department.

2) Any Toyota dealer can, by you giving them your VIN, tell you whatever was done to the vehicle under warranty

3) There are no special service campaigns for bed replacements, nor has there ever been one. Any bed that 'was' replaced was under factory "goodwill", to maintain customer satisfaction.

I have a 2004 Nissan pathfinder 3.5l SE with 109500 miles on the clock, and hear a ticking noise coming from the right valve cover does this model have a valve lash adjustment procedure.


The procedure is to check the gaps on all the valves then see how much they are out side the recommended gap
remove the camshafts and take the followers off the valve be careful to not lose the adjustment spacer from inside the follower you then measure the spacer to either go thicker or thinner to get the required gap do that with all followers that need adjustment refit camshafts and reset timing then remeasure the valve gaps

Tip

Engine Valve Train ? Ticking Noise


This is a step by step guide on how to find, remove, repair, and refit noisy valve lifters in your Isuzu 6VD1 engine.

The first picture explains a good way to figure out which side the noisy lifter is coming from, by using a stethoscope.

The second picture is showing how the excessive clearence in between the valve and the valve stem itself cause's the ticking sound you hear. Of course you will need to remove the rocker cover to get to the vavle assembly.

22e2ea3.png
The 3rd picture shows the wear on the face of the lifter or lash adjuster once you have pulled it out, and once again you will need to remove the valve train to do this. Just mark with a white marker the valves with the excessive clearence before you pull the valve assembly off.

edbc859.png
The 4th picture is showing how to remove the valve lash adjuster from the rocker itself. As it says in the pic. be sure not to damage the O-ring as you remove it.

The 5th picture is showing how to depress the check ball in the lash adjuster once it is remove so that the excess oil can be removed from it prior to cleaning and inspecting it.

a2b3322.png
The 6th picture is showing that carburettor cleaner is sprayed on the lash adjuster, but make sure that the oring is carefully removed first. Then check for wear and tarnishing after cleaning.

256838c.png
The 7th picture is showing the adjuster fully submerged in a cleaning solution like Calite to thoroughly clean it and while it is submerged, working the check ball in and out to get it really clean.

255d028.png
Now once this has been done then soak the lash adjuster in engine oil and work the check ball to get the oil into the valve body.
Refit the o-ring and then refit back into the rocker.
Reassemble the rocker and valve assembly to the head and make valve clearence adjustments.

The last picture shows the refitting of the rocker cover with new gaskets and sealant being used, you don't want to have to remove it because its leaking.

Well I hope that this quick overveiw of repairing those noisy and rattly lifters will be of great use and also save you a bit of money.

Happy motoring everyone.

Regards

Jason

Nissan hardbody 2.4 16v 2004 model have a ticking sound in cylinder head changed all the timing chains and guides. Please help I'm desperate


Hello Francois, the tapping sound you hear might be coming from a bad valve lifter, a bad camshaft lobe, a bent push rod, a broken valve spring, a broken rocker arm or the valves may need to be adjusted.

If ticking sound don't go away after flushing oil change is there a need to repair engine


Ticking sound is typical of slack in the valve train. Try using a wood dowell "stethescope" and touch it to the rocker arm cover over each cylinder. If a rocker arm adjustment is too slack, you'll hear a clicking sound rather than a muted murmur. If you find the noisy lifter you will need to remove the rocker arm cover and adjust it. CAUTION NOTE - It is possible that a hydraulic lifter may have some grit in the internal valve. That would stop the lifter from functioning properly.

My valves are ticking on my 97 doge 2500 pick up it has the 360 magnum can i adjust them or not .....


Ticking sound is normal from a health diesel engine is normal.

Diesel engine that does a lot of towing or carry large payload can use a head adjustment every 2 years or 24,000 miles.

I would keep tabs on the valve cover for oil leak.

Take it in the shop when the valve cover start to leak.

Do the valve adjustment,the valve cover and oil change at the same time.

Shell ROTELLA T Multigrade SAE 15W-40 is my prefer motor oil.
