You use a set of feeler guages to measure the gap between the valve and the tappet (the arm that opens the valve) there is a intake and exhaust gap setting. you'll have to do some research to find out what the gap should be for your motor.

Engine Valve Train ? Ticking Noise


This is a step by step guide on how to find, remove, repair, and refit noisy valve lifters in your Isuzu 6VD1 engine.

The first picture explains a good way to figure out which side the noisy lifter is coming from, by using a stethoscope.

The second picture is showing how the excessive clearence in between the valve and the valve stem itself cause's the ticking sound you hear. Of course you will need to remove the rocker cover to get to the vavle assembly.

22e2ea3.png
The 3rd picture shows the wear on the face of the lifter or lash adjuster once you have pulled it out, and once again you will need to remove the valve train to do this. Just mark with a white marker the valves with the excessive clearence before you pull the valve assembly off.

edbc859.png
The 4th picture is showing how to remove the valve lash adjuster from the rocker itself. As it says in the pic. be sure not to damage the O-ring as you remove it.

a4fa5e6.png
The 5th picture is showing how to depress the check ball in the lash adjuster once it is remove so that the excess oil can be removed from it prior to cleaning and inspecting it.

a2b3322.png
The 6th picture is showing that carburettor cleaner is sprayed on the lash adjuster, but make sure that the oring is carefully removed first. Then check for wear and tarnishing after cleaning.

256838c.png
The 7th picture is showing the adjuster fully submerged in a cleaning solution like Calite to thoroughly clean it and while it is submerged, working the check ball in and out to get it really clean.

255d028.png
Now once this has been done then soak the lash adjuster in engine oil and work the check ball to get the oil into the valve body.
Refit the o-ring and then refit back into the rocker.
Reassemble the rocker and valve assembly to the head and make valve clearence adjustments.

The last picture shows the refitting of the rocker cover with new gaskets and sealant being used, you don't want to have to remove it because its leaking.

Well I hope that this quick overveiw of repairing those noisy and rattly lifters will be of great use and also save you a bit of money.

Happy motoring everyone.

Regards

Jason

Adjustment clearance valve


Check the repair manual. Search it over the web or buy it. To set the valve clearence is more than knowing the clearence itself. The procedure should be described very well in the manual. Is worth have it.

VALVE ADJUSMENT 2011 ROCKET 3 .WHEN IS BEST TIME ..I KNOW THE BOOKS SAID TEN THOUSAND MILES..AND YES I UNDERSTAND THAT SERVICE DEPARTMENT NEED TO MAKE THERE MONEY AND TO PAY THERE PEOPLE..BUT 650 DOLLARS...


Hi, Jerry6shoote I totally understand your position on this matter it comes up a lot on Fixya here are your options:
1. Loose valves will have the annoying tick but no engine damage.
2. Tight valves will be silent but may not seat properly causing loss of compression, overheating, and burnt exhaust valves.
3. You can request the 10,000-mile service without the valve check to save hundreds of dollars.
4. You can do the valve check and adjustment if necessary yourself.
For this scenario, you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Triumph, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

What is meant by ' Valve clearence ' ,How to adjust it.


"Valve Clearance" refers to the small gap between the valve lifter and the valve stem that allows the valve to completely close. Remove the Valve Cover and set the crankshaft to the timing marks (only found in your service manual), for each particular valve to be completely closed. Loosen lock nut and set with a feeler guage then retighten the locking nut on the adjustment shaft. Four valves = four adjustments. Does this help?

Should a 200 Maxda3 have a valve clearance adjustment problem at 66,000 miles or am I one of a kind?


The service manual recommends that the valve clearences be checked every 60,000 miles or 72 months. This is "Schedule B" for normal driving as opposed to "Schedule A" for more demanding use of the engine. The clearances are checked by removing the valve cover gasket and checking them with a feeler gage. The valves can be adjusted by using small circular shims.
It may be that in practice the valves hardly ever need adjusting.
