2007 Fit Sport Valve Adjustment

need help with my 2007 fit sport. have about 110k miles on it and it's starting to really tick. More noticable when it's cold but it does it at some level all of the time. I'm assuming it's valve adjustment but welcome all input. Does anyone have a solid valve adjustment procedure? I'm fresh to the forum and appreciate all input.

U might want to try to find a Honda OEM Service Manual... I found mine on the internet long time ago.

Good Luck

Yep the valve-adjustment procedure is detailed on the Electronic Service Manual.

Helm publishes service manuals for Honda and several other car manufacturers. You can buy the actual (the identical manual as from the dealer) directly from Helm on line, but for a lot less. here is where I got my shop manuals from...

As for the valve adjustment, its just like doing it on a bike. I’ve done mine twice already, every 100,000-km or 62,000-mi. It's kind of a pain because the intake manifold needs to come off and you need to develop a knack for jamming the lock-nut. The adjustment screw will enlarge the gap when the lock-nut is tightened and the gap is spring loaded (the valve spring will compress if the gap is over adjusted) to get the feel for just the right amount of drag when pulling out the feeler gauge, so that is where knack is developed. Not impossible, but you will do it a couple of time the first time you do it. So be prepared for the extra time. Not too many people have this knack…not even at the Honda dealers. My guess is that the bike tuners would do a better job, if they race their bikes.
