The valve closest to where the exhaust manifold bolts on, is the exhaust valve.
and Vice - versa for the intake .

Plus the exhaust manifold port (hole in the cylinder head) is usually dark with soot, whereas the intake port is usually clean-ish.

What is wrong when the manifold valve isnt closing?


manifold valve. Intake or exhaust. i guess intake.
where are you exactly ,
the 2009 , which engine?
the intake on some engines have many valves.
intake runner.
main throttle is an air valve.
VSV valves , for EVAP system, that too is an intake valve.

why not post symptoms
and if you see a valve acting funny, send a photo or tell
exactly it connection, locations.
or login to alldata.com and just look.

98 oldsmobile achieva front head push rod order


You are thinking too hard.

It is VERY simple. The Intake valve push rods (marked with ORANGE paint) are shorter than the exhaust valve push rods (marked with BLUE paint) If you cannot see the paint, you can always stand them up next to each other...it is pretty obvious which ones are which.

BOTH heads are EXACTLY the same - they are interchangeable. It is just that one is turned one way and the other is turned the other way so the exhaust and intake ports will be on the correct sides. (intake port towards the center of engine, exhaust port to the outboard sides of the engine.) You do not need to go searching the internet for some "order". All you have to do is LOOK AT THE HEAD to tell which valve is intake and which valve is exhaust.

So then it is as simple as: Put the short push rods on the intake and the long push rods on the exhaust....

Which side of the motor on a 3.1 buick 1998 century is the intake side and the exhaust side. I'm installing push rod that are different lenghts and call for exact positioning on the intake side as well...


That is a V6 or V8 standard mounted engine. When they say intake side and exhaust side they are talking about the valves. Typically each cylinder has 2 valves the front valve is the intake the back valve is the exhaust.If you haven't already gotten it I highly recommend you get the Haynes or Chilton's repair manual from your vehicle so you have the adjustment specs or priming procedure if you have hydraulic lifters.

Making sure i'm on the compression stroke


Hi,
The compression stroke is when the piston is traveling UP and the intake and exhaust valves are both closed.

Intake: Piston going down, intake valve open, exhaust valve closed
Compression: Piston going up, intake and exhaust valves closed
Power: Piston going down, intake and exhaust valves closed
Exhaust: Piston going up., intake valve closed, exhaust valve open

I have a 2010 MTD Yard machine 21 inch snow thrower {123cc} and it broke a valve tappet bolt.I need to no were to set the intake and egzaust valves clearance.Thanks!


I can give you Briggs and Stratton figures for valve clearances of an engine this size. You may have to experiment a little till it runs right. ...you can adjust the intake valve (when it is closed) while the exhaust is open and adjust the exhaust valve (when it is closed) while the intake is open if you can tell...or ya can adjust them when the piston is at TDC on compression stroke (both valves closed). Intake: .004"-.006" Exhaust .004"-.006" (Vertical crankshaft)....for horizontal crank .004"-.006" Intake.....Exhaust is .006"-.011" Hope this helps . Here is a briggs engine specs chart..can';t find the Chinese engine listed anywhere http://www.briggsandstratton.com/engines/support/frequently-asked-questions/~/media/71BB9DA0BD4D4C19A0DA611923A0B80A.ashx

How do you tell if you are on exhaust or intake stroke on a 1.6 geo prism engine


The intake valve will be opening or open on the intake stroke and the same for the exhaust. If you are looking for TDC for timing purposes both valves will be closed and as you keep turning the crank the exhaust valve will start to open. Just back it up a little until it closes and your timing marks on the crank line up. Hope this helps.
