1998 318is - Adjusting valve gear?
I have a 98 318is. Ive noticed that the valve gear is fairly nosiy in operation between 2-3k RPM. Not a worn 'ticking' sound, but just loud in general. My car has only got 70k miles on it and a full history - uses no oil - hence my reason for thinking its just noisy and not worn.
Under inspection 1 in the manual i'm pretty sure theres a valve clearance check. Is this right for the 1.9 M42 engine? If so im thinking having this done may quieten things up. Although i'd guess that the followers are all self adjusting?
Can anyone shed any light?
