On Vehicle Inspection If a clanging noise due to the lash adjuster produced immediately after the engine has started or during operation persists, perform the following checks:

  1. Check the engine oil, and add or replace if necessary.
    1. If the engine oil is low, the air drawn in from the oil strainer will be trapped in the oil passage.
    2. If the engine oil level is higher than the specified level, agitation of oil by the crankshaft could cause a large amount of air to enter the oil.
    3. A deteriorated oil contains a large amount of air, because the air, once trapped, is not readily separated from the oil. If the air trapped due to these causes enters the high pressure chamber in the lash adjuster, the air in the high pressure chamber will be compressed while the valve is in the opened position. The lash adjuster will be drawn too far in, and will produce noise when the valve closes. This is the same phenomenon that occurs when the valve clearance is adjusted to an excessive dimension.

      Fig. 3: Check the valves with the white arrows, rotate the crankshaft 360°, then check the valves with the black arrows — 3.0L (24 Valve) Engines 86663236.gif
      Fig. 4: Check the valves with the white arrows, rotate the crankshaft 360°, then check the valves with the black arrows — 3.5L Engines

      In this case, the normal condition will be restored if the air escapes from the lash adjuster.
  2. Start the engine and slowly race (accelerate the engine from idling speed to 3,000 rpm in 30 seconds and then decelerate it to the idling speed in 30 seconds) it several times (less than 10 times). If racing the engine causes the noise to die away, it means that the air has escaped from the high pressure chamber of the lash adjuster and that the lash adjuster has regained its normal functions.
    1. When the vehicle is parked on a slope for a long period of time, the oil in the lash adjuster will decrease. When the engine is started, the air might enter the high pressure chamber.
    2. After a long period of parking during which the oil in the oil passage goes away, it will take some time before the oil is re-supplied to the lash adjuster. Therefore, the air could enter the high pressure chamber.
  3. If any abnormal noise is not eliminated by racing, check the lash adjuster.
    1. Stop the engine.
    2. Set the engine so that cylinder No. 1 is positioned at the top dead center of the compression stroke.
    3. Press the rocker arm at the area indicated by the white arrow mark to check whether the rocker arm is lowered or not.
    4. Slowly turn the crankshaft 360°clockwise.
    5. In the same procedure as step "c'', check the rocker arm at the area indicated by the black arrow mark.
    6. Push down the rocker arm at a portion located right above the lash adjuster. If the rocker arm goes down readily, the lash adjuster is defective. Replace it with a new one in accordance with Step 4. In addition, when replacing the lash adjuster, be sure to remove air positively from the lash adjuster before installation. Then perform inspection in accordance with steps "a'' through "e'' to make sure that there is no abnormality. In addition, if the rocker arm is felt to be very stiff or cannot be pushed down when it is pushed, the lash adjuster is in the normal condition. Therefore, check for other causes of noise.
Bleeding and Checking When cleaning or checking the lash adjusters, use only clean diesel fuel. To test the lash adjusters, follow this procedure.
  1. Immerse the lash adjuster in clean diesel fuel.
  2. While lightly pushing down the inner steel ball using a small wire, move the plunger up and down four or five times to bleed air. The use of the retainer facilitates the air bleeding of the rocker arm mounted type lash adjuster.
  3. Remove the small wire and press the plunger in. If the plunger is hard to be pushed in, the lash adjuster is normal. If the plunger can be pushed in all the way readily, bleed the lash adjuster again and test again. If the plunger is still loose, replace the lash adjuster. NOTE: Upon completion of bleeding the air out of the lash adjuster, hold the adjuster upright to avoid the diesel fuel from spilling.
  4. After air bleeding, set the lash adjuster on the special tool (leak down tester MD998440).
  5. After the plunger has gone down somewhat 0.008–0.020 in. (0.2–0.5mm), measure the time needed for it to go down an additional 0.04 in. (1mm). Replace if the measured time is not between 4–20 seconds.

Need to adjust the valves on a 3.1 oldsmobile ciera.There is no mark on harmonic balancer.


there does not need to be marks on a harmonic balancer to adjust valves
when a piston is on tdc the valves will be either completely closed or in the valve rock position
when adjusting valve clearence you will need to know the firing order because when no 1 piston is ready to fire , then the next piston to fire will be in the valve rock position
for example if no1 piston of a 6 cylinder ( firing order 153642) is at tdc firing both valves will be closed and so the valves of no5 piston will be rocking so that will be the nect piston valves to adjust and after that no3 piston valves will rock so you do no 5 valves and so on
a workshop manual will explain it all to you

How to adjust valves on Toyota 1991 23re engine


Very carefully my friend. Kidding. Ok, remove the valve cover and anything in your way of removing it. By hand, with a socket and ratchet, on the crankshaft bolt head, turn the engine over to get #1 piston to top dead center on compression stroke. You'll need to find out what the valve lash should be in order to adjust properly, I run the 22R engines and only have specs for that, and have a feeler gage to place between the valve head and rocker arm. Check the gap on the intake valve for it is in position to adjust now because the cam lobe is at the farthest away from the valve. If it needs adjusted closer, turn the nut loose and screw the center in to tighten and out to give more gap, then tighten the jam nut after adjusted. Now turn the crank to bring #3 to top dead center and adjust that intake. Once done go back to #1 exhaust and adjust it. You'll know when the #3 is TDC when the rocker is loose on intake valve along with #1 exhaust. Now bring #4 piston up to TDC and adjust intake valve. Like I said, you'll know when it's @TDC when that rocker is loose, but with the spark plugs out you can stick a screwdriver in the plug hole to be sure it's up. Firing order on 4 cylinders is 1-3-4-2 so do your adjustment in that order for each intake valve and go back to the last one adjusted and do the exhaust valve.

Need to know what or how the adjustment is for the valves on a 1999 Mercury Sable 3.0


Why do you need to adjust the valves? They should be non adjustable, so if there is valve noise, you may have other issues, like enough oil pressure in that area
