Valve Adjustment Estimate (National Average)
No parts required.
When the valves are out of adjustment, they can make a ticking noise that will speed up with engine RPM.
A tight valve adjustment will not make noise, but can cause the valves to get very hot and become burnt. Have the valves checked and adjusted periodically even if they are not noisy.
