Thumbs up


Hello there, fellows HF members;

I just read in the Haynes Repair Manual (#43055) page 2B-11 that the 3.3L V6 engine use bucket-style lifters that must be replaced with ones of the proper thickness in order to adjust valve clearances.

Has anybody here ever heard of this? Have you ever had it done?

I'm just looking for info as to cost and reasons why the service technician gave you to get to this result.

Thank You

Unless it is pecking....... dont even think about it..

Cost,,, no number value, but to start the measure process, remove upper plenum, both cam cover, and obtain clearance values...

How do want to play the game?? you want to play the range of adjustment, or you want them all set evenly to 1 value for intake and 1 value for exhaust .....

If adjustments need to be made,,,, remove oil and lower oil pan, cut some of the engine mounts loose to tip the engine, dump the cooling system, remove drive belt/crank pulley/water pump, then go after the front cover. Now you can see the chains and tensioners... Hmmm, maybe replace chains upon re-assembly, maybe tensioners too, how about the guides ??

Mark everything real well, remove chains, then remove cams.... now remove the bucket, and micrometer inspect the thickness, then firgure the +/- amount into your known value, then replace with correct thickness bucket... they'll be special order too, so figure out what you need to have.. dont forget all the other gaskets, oil filter, coolant, RTV, chains, guides, tensioners..

I set my TOYOTA head up at 65,000 mile, new valve seals and valve adjust to 1 value at intake and exhaust... 336,600+ mile currently, still quiet.... needs valve seals though.

Cost, figure maybe $2200 as a wild guess to start...

Holy smokes! Thanks for the detailed right up. I will not be getting a valve adjustment, I'd be getting a new car before that happened!

instead of all that, can you not just use a depression tool to depress the bucket and remove the shim with tweezers like you would a motorcycle?

A Shovel, and a 55-Gallon drum, can solve many of life's little "irritants"..

Fast answer --- NO

This is a 1 piece part.... the bucket is whole adjustment..

Use micrometer to measure the thickness of follower surface to bump on underside of the bucket.. ad/subtract accordingly to get desired clearance.

Kinda nice having an AZERA manual here at home.

Service manual and related for valve clearance inspect/adjust shows same MLA system as the V6,,, measure all clearances, remove cams and MLA, micrometer check MLA and add/subtract as needed to get desired valve clearance.

I'm assuming that this is not a regular maintenance procedure. What are the symptons that one looks for to help determine when a valve adjustment needs to be performed?
