Default Re: Completed valve adjustment on my 3.5

I never had any codes even for the stalls on cold start, which surprised me. The two stalls were even years apart. The thing I noticed with the rough shut off was it only happen if I shut it off while it was still cold. It was noticeable because I have to back the vue out to get to my lawn mower.

I reused the same gaskets. They were in great condition and I just made sure they were clean and well seated.

I suspect my car may have been a little abnormal in how off the exhaust valves were. I used the 0.305 for exhaust and 0.229 for the intake and I could barely fit the 0.229 gauge in the exhaust valves. Like I said I didn't touch the intakes because they 'felt' good enough.
