I'm looking for the Toyota corrola 1.6 4AF engine valve clearance

will need a micrometer, valve clearance adjustment tool set for shimmed lifters,small magnetic arm, appropriate shim selecting charts (manufacturer will have this if you can get the nec. measurements).
Measure thickness of shims removed (using micrometer) and use this formula where T=Thickness of old shim; A=Valve clearance measured; N=Thickness of new shim required.
Intake valves: N = T + (A - 0.02 mm (0.008 in.)) Exh. valves: N = T + (A - 0.25 mm (0.010 in.))
Then you need to find shims as close as possible to the calculated values.
Valve clearances (cold) are as follows: Intake0.15 - 0.25 mm (0.006 - 0.010 in.) Exhaust0.20 - 0.30 mm (0.008 - 0.012 in.)
Note, if you are not familiar with precision measuring using a micrometer, this may be better left to a trained tech. These are high revving little power plants and you don't want a problem at 8K rpm.

Front rotor

Really no way to do this. A micrometer is usually part of every store that sells rotors. Even if they do not turn rotors, they still need to know if yours are safe.

My 2002 pontiac aztek battery light came on yesterday. Today i went out and NOTHING. jumpstarted it ran for a few minutes then died. Will not start without being jumped. i figured out how to get past the...

Hello! I do not believe this is a security issue...The Battery Light is telling you that the charging system has a fault...One of three possibilities exist...# 1...The battery can no longer hold a charge...
# 2...The Alternator is defective...Or # 3...The cables that interconnect power and ground are corroded and resistive...Do you have a voltmeter and a wee bit of experience using one?...If not send a comment...Set the meter to rear +12 volts...Place the meter probes directly in the center of the battery post...Record the reading...Jump start the vehicle...Quickly remove the jump cables and while the engine is still running, take the same reading again...The second reading must be 1.8 to 2 volts higher than the first...This tests the alternator...If alternator is good...Have the battery tested...Clean cables (on both ends) if necessary...

When the battery, alternator and cables are correct, the battery light will go out...At that point in time the engine should start...If not, then we have other issues and I'll fix them if necessary...


I’m happy to help further over the phone at

Will DIY changing your battery in a BMW 530 XI cause the electric systems to be reset at the dealer? Have seen that this is necessary with BMWs with X Drive

The battery needs to be registered to reset the energy data that is stored in the vehicle.Without this being done you may run into short battery life and possibly energy consumers shutting down (ie the blower not working at full speed)

How the light works for high beam and running lights

Very well.

With DC electricity.

Now what do you really want to know?

There are two filaments in single headlight bulb autos and two separate lightbulbs for dual headlight autos. A switch controls which filament is connected to power from the battery.

You are going to have to give more information so we will know what to tell you.

Car overheating, fan won't turn on.

well first you will need to hard wire the fan to the battery to determine if the fan is good. then You will need to check the fuse/relay for radiator/AC fan. after that if necessary, check the engine coolant temperature sensor, could be faulty, this sensor tells the computer when the engine is hot enough to turn the fans on

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Died while driving home

OK that's different...First, you will need to check the battery for 12v. (no testing can be done without proper voltage there) Lights working does not tell you this.
You will need to do a code check before replacing any parts. Without testing there are numerous possible causes and it will cost you $$$ to replace all of them before "hitting" on the right solution. (you just found that out by replacing the pump.) There are other individual component tests you can do using a digital volt/ohmeter.
Offhand, the first place I'd check is the crankshaft position sensor. They are notorious for this kind of failure BUT don't replace it till you test it! post back with any questions and results you get. (in other words, we are not finished yet!!)
