Engine Mechanical problem
1996 Chevy S-10 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 93000 miles

I just changed the head gasket on this vehicle. I replaced everything as removed.

I started the truck but it idles very rough, I believe I need to adjust the valves but don't know the procedure.

Could you please explain the procedure for adjusting the valve please.

Thank you,

Brent Paulson

According to my Mit1 auto references its non-adjustable for a 2.3L engine-A 4.3 V6 has a torquing procedures for the rocker arms-

That makes no sense. How can the valves be non adjusting.

When I changed the head gaskets on my 350 chev, there was a prodedure to bring the valves back in sequence.

There should be a similar sequence setting for a 4 cyl

Engine not running -You can try this as you wish-put engine no.1 piston on its compression and adjust the valves do the rest follow the firing order. Or while engine is running do below

Loosen the adjusting nut till the valve clatters then tighten it 3/4 of a turn do this on both intake/exhaust valves-

I know exactly what your trying to say about the 350 CID adjustment
