Icon8 Prelude13 needs a valve lash adjustment




Yah, so since i've reacquired my Civic, i haven't been using my Prelude as a DD anymore. It's succumb to being a "Garage Queen." I noticed today i need two things done: 1)New front rotors 2) a valve adjustment.

I didn't notice how bad it was until i put in some windshield washer fluid with the car on, the ticking is sick-loud. I think it's coming from cylinders 1 & 4, but it could be all of them...

...well, time to get some feeler gauges and tighten them loose valves up

I'll update my progress as i have more time or i'll just remove the entire motor in favor of a heart transplant *cough cought H cough deuce deuce cough
