Honda Civic Valve Adjustment
How to adjust valves on a Honda Civic. My 2000 Honda Civic VP (DX Value
Package) had 225,000 miles on it, and the valves were getting kind of
noisy. I used to adjust the valves on a couple old Ford Mustangs (1967 and 1974) that I used
to own and that wasn't too hard. Doing it on my Honda was a little more
involved. But overall, it wasn't too difficult once I got in there. In this
video, I walk you through the steps to do it. Even though this is a 2000
Honda Civic, the steps are pretty much the same on many other models and
years of Honda's. After adjusting the valves, the engine is much quieter,
and running smoother. I also show how to adjust the valves WITHOUT having
to remove the timing belt cover, which can add some extra steps removing
and re-installing other parts. This engine is a D16Y7, but the steps will
apply to other similar engines.
At the end, I give the steps to reset the ECU. These are probably overkill,
but what the hey.
Cylinder Head 105 - Valve Job Basics
Valves not sealing? Valves not bent? This is how you fix that problem.
In this video I outline the basic valve job procedure. Cleaning the
valves, cleaning the seats, cleaning the combustion chamber and lapping the
valves in to make a better seal.
Here I cover the process start-to-finish. It's the same exact process for
pretty much all non-rotary combustion engines. It takes patience and
perseverance to do this job, but anyone can do it. Reference your service
manual for measurements and service limits. Everything else that's not in
your service manual is in this video.
I apologize for not having broken busted crap to work with in this video.
It's more beneficial to all of you when bad fortune falls on me because it
gets well documented, and many people watching these videos are looking for
answers. If you have bent valves, you will discover it quickly once you
chuck one up in the drill. You'll see the face of the valve wobble around
while it spins. You'll see evidence of this damage on the valve seat. If
it's bad, you may see damage on the valve guides in the form of cracks or
missing pieces where the valve guides protrude through the head ports.
Give all that stuff a good visual inspection. ...and if you doubt yourself,
never hesitate to get a second opinion or consult a machine shop. They
will have access to expensive tools that you wont find in your average

Well this was a fun one to make. I believe I covered everything but if you
feel I haven't please let me know in the comments below as well as any tips
you might have to add as well. I'm not trying to make a big deal about
"pound feet" or "foot pounds" I'm just trying to put that out there, the
important thing is that you get the proper torque and get the job done
right in my opinion, what you decide to call it is up to you.
