Engine valve adjustment
The valves of an internal combustion engine are one of its most important elements. Opening and closing, under the influence of a rotating camshaft, transmitted through pushers or special rocker arms, they provide timely and metered supply of the air-fuel mixture to the cylinders of a piston engine, as well as the subsequent removal of waste combustion products.
At the same time, long-term operation of the car can lead to some violations of the process, which can be restored by adjusting the engine valves.
What is the Adjustment?
Actually, the process does not consist in setting the valve itself, but in adjusting the thermal gap between the camshaft pusher and the elements of the valve mechanism, which serves to compensate for the thermal expansion of engine components. Adjustment of the valve consists in maintaining the optimal dimensions of the gap, allowing it to work as correctly as possible, ensuring the supply of fuel and the removal of combustion products at the right time and in the required volumes.
Why is an adjustment needed?
The price of valve adjustment is the general condition of the engine, and hence the operational capabilities of the vehicle. Problems with them are accompanied by:
- a significant increase in fuel consumption;
- a drop in the power of the internal combustion engine;
- premature wear of the valves themselves and other engine components
In addition, the untimely adjustment of the valves, the cost of which depends on the level of the problem, leads to a deterioration in the environmental friendliness of the exhaust and wear of the catalysts, due to the ingress of unburned fuel into the exhaust system.
How Often Is Adjustment Required?
On a car with a long service life, it is recommended to carry out activities after every 60-70 kilometers. At the same time, when valve adjustment may be required, the design of the power unit, the driving style of the car owner and its operating conditions also affect. In any case, if fuel consumption increases, the power and dynamics of the car decrease, a metallic knock appears in the engine, then this should not be ignored.
Where can the problem be solved
It is always possible to quickly and efficiently adjust the valves at the VagMaster service station, which is a certified service center that provides a full range of services for the maintenance and repair of popular Vag group car models.
The full range of services, which provides for adjusting the valve clearance, includes:
- verification of thermal gaps for compliance with the normative from 0.1 to 0.4 millimeters;
- checking the integrity and degree of wear of valves;
- detection of leaks from under the valve cover;
- clearance adjustment;
- replacement of related components;
- providing recommendations for further operation.
The price for Kyiv valve adjustment depends on the level of the problem, but at the VagMaster service station it is always objective and fully corresponds to the high quality of the work performed.
