With the Engine in the number 1 firing position, adjust the exhaust valves for cylinders number 1, 3, 4, and 8 and the intake valves for cylinders number 1, 2, 5, and 7.
Turn the valve rocker arm nut counter clockwise until the valve lash is felt in the valve pushrod.
Turn the rocker arm nut clockwise until all of the valve lash is removed (zero valve lash).
Zero valve lash can be felt by moving the valve pushrod up and down between your thumb and forefinger until there is no more up and down movement of the valve pushrod.
When all the valve lash is removed, then turn the valve rocker arm nut clockwise 1 additional turn (360 degrees).


With the engine in the number 6 firing position, adjust the exhaust valves for cylinders number 2, 5, 6, and 7 and the intake valves for cylinders number 3, 4, 6, and 8.

Follow the same steps as above.

Car wont start


sounds like the timing belt has gone would not keep trying to start engine if this is the case and it will cost you more to fix. it may have striped a cog on the belt or the adjuster has given up the goat. clicking and clunk is a most common sound of the belt going. if you have to have the belt changed and the engine runs and is ticking then the valves are bent and you will need to have the head changed or the valves replaced, as over time the valve can snap and then the engine is a gonner.

Noise startup


Have your valve lash adjusted. Overhead cams need the lash done every 25-30K otherwise after some time they make a loud ticking sound. If the motor makes a "Knocking" sound, it may be a lower end noise, and there is no adjustment for that.

Hi I'm Wayne. Pls help me with my GA13DS engine


Check for a bad rocker arm and correct valve adjustment. Make sure cam timing is correct. Never try to retard or advance the cam timing.

Toyota paseo engine ticking


Lifter may be worn or cam lobe is worn and is probably due a timing belt replacement as well.Sounds like just a high mileage problem lots of people complain of valve train noise from these engines its not uncommon. I would use a high mileage engine oil to help with the noise but i am afraid the noise is only going to get worse over time you may look into salvage engine with a warranty or having the engine rebuilt it sounds like it is already burning oil. The valve lash can be adjusted on this engine but if your not a mechanic i do not recommend this, it is very sensitive procedure and can damage the engine permanently. Take it to a shop have them check your valve lash and adjust it for the noise issue to save yourself some time and money on a very costly repair with improperly adjusted valve lash. Remember to rate my solution Thanks in advance.

Pull over to take off a slash guard and now car wont start... i never had startin issues before n now its happened... was told crank shaft sensor or replaced it... it was full of dirt so figured it start...


I am with your roomate on this dianosis this sounds like the idle air control valve has gone bad causing the no start issue that you are having and the fact that the throttle body is making noise.

Just changed all 3 belts now I have a horrible noise, sounds like it needs a major valve adjustment. Why wasn't it making noise before and now it is? This doesnt make sense!!!


If all you changed are the belts external to the engine, your valves should not have been affected. Are you hearing a high-pitched sound when you start it? If so, try tightening the alternator belt a few turns. I have two Rodeos and both will squel if that belt tension is not correct.

Heater is making this werid noise when you turn it up and one day he shut the glove box and it started working this worked up intill couple days ago what do you think this could be?


Bad blower motor or loose electrical connection to the blower motor - My 98 A4 usually required that I slam the glove box in order to get it to work.

1998 ford expadition ticking noise ,sound like valve spring broke slightly rough idel loss of power. oil pressure good every thing seems fine.


have your engine valve tappets adjusted to its specified adjustment by a competent mechanic then if the noise is still there then you need to have the engine timing checked. if these doesnt solve the problem then you need to pulldown the cylinder head to inspect the camshaft condition...

Does a jeep 4.0 valves self adjusting or do you adjust them .when you start it up it sounds like a race car .


No...race cars sound better than that!!! If you have a lifter that's sticking, try some marvel oil in there. It won't fix it immediately and if anythings just worn out it may never help. Lifters are hydraulic but non-adjustable. How is the oil pressure? If you don't have a gauge, it may help to either install one or at least have a mechanical gauge attached temporarily and monitored to make sure it's correct. (should be about 40 running hot at idle and a bit higher cold.)
Also...sure it's lifter noise? exhaust manifolds like to crack right where the two head pipes join.
