Hi there all. I've got a good question. I was wondering if any of you guys have adjusted your valves on the 1kz-te. Mine sounds as if it is due to have a shim or two replaced. Its slowly been getting more of a tick on cold start and goes away after about 5 mins of driving when everything warms up. I was just wondering if any of you guys knew of any other vehicles that might have the same size dia shims as this motor. Prefferably toyota motors. I have heard from the Australian forum that the 2LTE uses the same shims but we have none of them here either. I just want to know if there are some on this continent before I go and get a few from overseas.
I will also be doing a timing belt change here right soon and will be wanting to change the tensioners while I am in there. I've talked to a few places in the US but they were not able to find the stuff. Just wondering if someone knew that stuff as well.
