    Ever heard of a D16Z6 needing a valve adjustment? If so, what would cause it to need one?

    What do you think this procedure would cost at a repair facility?

    Its common upkeep on an engine. You can do it yourself it's not that hard. Just buy yourself a feeler gauge. Here are the specs
    .007-.009 I
    .009-.011 E

    Those are not encouraging words. I don't know, I just don't really have the time or skill to do it myself and nobody to instruct me how.

    ok how to
    pull off vavle cover then use the feeler gauge to check the valve lash then adjust as you go it takes about 20 mins to do and if you don't have a feeler gauge it can be done by ear but takes alittle longer to do. a shop would tipically charge 1-2 hrs to do it .
