Valve Adjustment Cost
RepairPal Fair Price EstimateLearn more
RepairPrice Estimates are based on the estimated time for the repair, labor rates charged by trained automotive professionals, and prices for quality parts.
These estimates are designed to show a range of fair prices, instead of a single price, because there is more than one part that is appropriate to use in each repair, and more than a single mechanic who is qualified to do the repair.
Each estimate is customized for your vehicle and geographic area. Estimates exclude applicable taxes, diagnostic charges and disposal fees.
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.
