Question about 2006 Honda S2000
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

check to see if exhuast manifold is sealing good on cylnder #3 if it is check for cracks.it may be sucking cold air in witch can cause it to burn the valves.
