Hi,
I wonder how to adjust the valves in my SPI SOHC 2002 Ford Focus?
engine doesn't run smooth it rocks a little bit and my friend told my that
i should adjust valves.
He said that especially valves on the 1st cyl are working wrong

by the way what are the settings for gaps for intake and what are for exhaust valves?
should I do this when engine is hot or cold?
all the best
Arek

if u got any idea pls email me [email protected]

yeah, that's right
nearly 2 per year
by the way I wonder wether these valves are hydraulic automatic...
the point is that engine doesn't run smoothly bot it rocks a little bit
one guy said that it can be problem with:
wires
spark plugs
or even with pcv valve

You cant adjust the valves.


I bet you have a vacuume leak or somthing on those lines.
Do you have an auto or 5 speed?

are they automatic hydraulic adjusted?
I've bought new plugs and going to instal them tommorow morning.
Then if it's still not OK I'll change the plug wires
and then I have to check pcv valve hose
I'm confused about this but I have to check point after point, we'll see.

I think Jeff already answered that when he said " You cant adjust the valves."

lol.

under normal circumstance there is no reason to do any adjusting to the valves, lifters or rockers.

"Question: 1998 Ford Escort mileage: 80,000. On this Escort do the valve lifters need adjusting or are they hydraulic and self-adjusting?

Answer: They are self adjusting."

Just got that from 2carpros.com SPI BABY :))
