Answers :

For adjusting the valves look for a sticker under the hood with valve clearance specs or a service manual.You will need appropriate feeler gauges and a 10mm wrench and a flat tip screw driver.If the car is a 4cylinder the cam gear will have 4 notches on it they represent watch cylinder to adjust if it is a six cylinder the front cam will have notches on it with numbers on it you adjust the valves of the cylinder number that is lined up with the timing marks.I recommend using a vernier caliper and setting it to the correct clearance that the valves are supposed to be set to and drag the feeler gauge through it so you can get use to what the correct clearance feels like on the feeler gauge.If you have never done this I would take it to a good shop because this does take some skill and drivability problems can occur if done incorrectly.Good Luck!
