Hey My 91 Accord's engine makes a tapping noise.. im pretty sure its the valves, and the engine only has 112000 kms on it so theres still lots of life in it... so if there are any suggestions on how to stop the tapping noise they would be greatly appreciated Thanks :grin:

If it still makes the noise after the valve adjustment, try using a tank of 93 octane gas and see what happens.

valve cover gasket ain't nothin. buy it urself and do it urself. ill be less shit they can charge you with.

my timing belt broke, so this was my sanario.

labor-$300
gasket set-$200 (got it at cost price)
machine shop work-$180 plus 4 new valves (i still owe on that one.)

i had to drive my car with that rocker arm too tight so i could get home which realy sucked. i went back a few dayz later so they finished it up.
