Question about 2006 Honda S2000

Open Question

S 2000 Values

I have a 2004 S-2000 with 30,000 miles on it. These are very gentle miles as I'm 56 years old and the car was a retirement gift. With 28,000 miles on the car the "check engine" light came on. I took the car to the dealer and was told I needed a valve adjustment. $250 later I was told the car was good to go. Now with 30,000 miles on the vehicle and four months later, I noticed the car shaking when warm and ideling at a stoplight. I returned the car to the dealer who informed me I had a burnt valve and the cost would be $5000+ to repair. That seems incredible to me since I drive the car very little and when I do, I drive it like a grandpa.
From what I can research, if the valves are adjusted improperly, it can result in a burnt valve. Since the symptom did not occur until sometime after the valves were adjusted, it seems like a pretty strong case of "cause and effect". Incidentally the owners manual says the valves don't need to be adjusted unless 'noisy" or at 105,000 miles. Can anyone give me advice before I get taken to the cleaners once again?? Thanks, FH

Sixteen year old car with only 40K miles must not be driven often, or sat for some time. I would suspect fuel system issue, such as bad pump, clogged filter, bad regulator or faulty injectors. Start by testing fuel pressure.

Engine sputters accelerating

no year? no engine? GC ,, . (crd 56?)

there are many engines, used, so we cant guess that.... and is totally Germain.
here ill tick off a few, for low power, and there are many simple tests.
  1. a tuneup, do the 60,000 mile listed tuneup now. Bam, runs.
  2. low compression on any cylinder. or all.
  3. bad spark (see tuneup)
  4. if 1996 and newer, scan it , in USA scan the ECU/PCM.
  5. bad fueling? too little or too much.

this is engine power, we need the year, the cylinder count and displacement. of said engine.
here is a shop manual.. 93-2004 years

How many years or miles should a timing belt be changed on a 2000 V8 Tundra ?

Replace the timing belt at 90,000 miles or 10 years. Considering it is already 11 years old, replace it now. Warning: This is an interference engine. If the belt breaks you will have serious internal engine damage. The water pump is also driven by the cam belt so it is advisable to replace it at the same time you replace the cam belt in order to save labor cost later on when the pump fails. The pump will not last 180,000 miles so replace it now.

Slow oil leakage. It leaks a quart of oil about every 2000 miles is it the seals or what else could it be?

It could be burning the oil also ... 1 quart in 2000 miles on a 20 + year old car is not unusual. You may want to use some engine treatment (STP for example) that may slow the loss.

Thanks for your interest in
