Re: How to tell when its time for a Valve adjustment
Ok was gonna chime in here earlier but got busy at work...sighs
On the 16,000 mile valve thing every one I have ever talked to who had it done said they check out fine at that mileage, this includes salesmen and shop mechanics at my local dealership. They say skip it until 32,000 miles.
First things first, I would suggest getting a working servo motor and hooking it back up so the FI indicator and fault codes caused by removing it go away.
How long has the exhaust been on? With just a slip on ther is a hole in the power curve right at 5500 rpm.
Do you have a Power commander, has it been custom mapped?
To receive the benefit of your mods and overcome any detrimental effects this needs to be done.
