Smile DIY: M3 Valve Adjustment - Video Tutorial DIY

Hey guys,

I finally completed my first swing at a valve adjustment today. I can say overall, it wasn't really that difficult, but more than anything it was time consuming.

Since this site has been a great resource to me, I figured that I would help give back by documenting some of the work that was done and help shed some light on some the mystery behind adjusting valves on an S54B32 motor.

Enjoy!

not a bad idea using WP pulley instead of crank pulleys, most techs use the crank...

after doing this job myself a few months ago I can honestly say that's an extremely well done DIY given the space you need to operate within.

I vote this get's added to the Maintenance Sticky.


awesome job, OP.
