So, with all the new recruits from the vfr forum, does anyone have experience of doing the dreaded valve check service, is it really that bad ?

Welcome aboard chaps.

I've done the pre-vtec (my fi-y) which was easy-the vtec is harder because of the extra valves which need more thought/experience.
I think it all comes down to how 'spannered up' you are?
Obviously, there are different schools of thought on if they need doing at all,or if you can just' do the non vtec clearances...
I'm old school & sleep better knowing they're done :016:
(all my humble opinion of course)
p.s. my fi-y ones were all in tolerance! :018:

It's amazing how many people have the check done which costs a fortune to be told "yea mate all in tolerance limits" in fact if you look at this forum and others you can count on the fingers of Mickey Mouses hand how many actually needed it done. And even then you wonder if it was just the dealer justifying the ridiculous cost.

It's a topic all of it's own...there are plenty of instances where loads of shims needed changing too :016:
As I say, I did my own (I'm a tech) & found it an easy check but a vtec would be more labour intensive, plus you need the special tools.
