Honda Civic 1.4 1998 Valve Clearances - Nick Field
My 1998 Civic 1.4 (base model with keep fit windows) owners manual is quite informative, but seems to state that the screw and locknut valves get looked at once at 24,000 miles and never again. Anyone out there know about these engines? This particular car has a very low mileage, and I checked the valves last year and only one neeeded slight adjustment.

Anyone know what intervals these should be checked at? They are good old screw and locknut - the user's manual seems to indicate once and 24,000 miles and never again!

Nick,
Haynes manual for my 1996 1.5 lsi (16v sohc) suggests valve clearance check/adjust every 24k or 2 yrs.
