Valves too worn out?

Recommended Posts

How many adjustments do you usually get out of your valves before they are ready to break? I've heard they break off at the head and cause alot of damage. I have adjusted mine once. I called the dealer today and it would be like 450 bucks for all new valves. I dont want to pay this unless I absolutey have to. That's alot of $$. :cry:

I still have the original valves in my 02. Still running awesome, I checked my valves twice and re-shimmed once. The the Dealer is just going to feed you BS, dont listen to it. As long as you keep them to spec, they should be fine. As well as all the other maintence.

10% reduction in the shim size compared to the OEM shim. After that swap em as needed.

It's usually the one on the gearshift side and the middle one that tulips the most. For some reason the exhaust side dopesnt do it.
