tom -- take your word for it I know the valves are not burned when you say tight exhust are you telling me that they are adjustable and that's wht is needed to repair ythis problem or is the stem of the valve to tight in the guide and causeing a binding condition also if its only an adjustment what are you setting the lash at thanks again for your help and patience im not sure about the torque converter issue ill worry about that later
hello again I adjusted the valves as you said to begin with they were not very far out -- I have an even 180+ pounds of compression vehicle idlesvery smooth it only brakes up or misses under a load any suggestions
tom im still having this issue with the engine miss fire under a load let me tell you what I did so far the distributor is a second one from auto zone I changed the timing belt I changed the crank sensor I did a noid test on the injectors as well as a pulse test all good ck for vacune leak ok fuel pressure is 60 lbs with vacume off compression is even all accross
tom ill ck it again because it gave me fits lineing up
plat all the marks seem to be across except the dist.the rotor is definitely past the # 1 wire is this the norm
plat just wanted to touch base on the crv --I completely exhausted every possibility on why this car was missing I checked all the cam and dist, itming 3 times I began to do another compressios test when I noticed that the plugs looked to be very dry on the electrode I did a noid test it was ok I did a pulse light test ( new machine) it was ok -- I took a chance and went to theyard picked up a frame rail with all inj. and regulators attached cleaned it up installed it and wella car ran like a fine watch no miss plenty of power with a perfect idle wanted to let you know incase you run into this some time --- thanks for all your help be well dom1026
