Have found the info i need in thetechnical how too's but was told it is shims and done differently?Yeah it's shims. Point the marks on the cams at each other on compression stroke (i.e. after inlet valves have closed) then check the clearances. No need to lock the crank. If they are out of spec then you need to lock the crank at TDC remove the camchain tensioner and remove the cams to get to the shims. Be careful cos the shims can stick to the followers and drop off into the motor. Measure the thickness of the shims with a micrometer then calculate how thick the replacements need to be. See the thread the other day about putting cams back in. It's all pretty easy and the good news is they hardly ever need adjustment,,,

Can you adjust valve clearance on kia optima 2.0 cdti


Depends on the year and engine. The older engines have hydrolic lifters. The newer engines 06 and up with CVVT have solid lifters so you would have to pull the valve covers and use a feeler gauge to measure clearances and replace the tappets accordingly.

My 2005 kfx400 will only start by push starting and wont idle?


Take it into a shop , or if your confident then you can do it yourself. It seems to me that if it will not idle and is having troubles starting then your intake or exhaust valves need to be adjusted.Over time your valve stems stretch based off of the metal alloy in them some need adjusted more often and some need adjusted less often. I am 80% positive that this is your underlying issue. I have encountered this at least 10 times.

are you getting sufficient flow through the cooling system,i.e. clogged radiator,bad water pump,stuck thermostat. also when the head was repaired , was it pressure test for cracks? valves out of adjustment will cause the engine to run poorly but not overheat.
