Toyota RAV4>> Maintenance>> Check and adjustment of gaps in the drive of Valves>> Adjustment of gaps
       NOTE
On release cars till 2001 for adjustment of gaps of valves adjusting washers, and on release cars since 2001 — the pushers having various thickness are used.

Cars till 2001 of release
If gaps of valves differ from the required values, adjust them.
Turn a bent shaft of the engine in situation at which camshaft cams over the valve demanding adjustment will be directed up.

Fig. 2.51. Installation of the special tool on the camshaft for a pusher utaplivaniye klapanag


Install the special tool for a pusher utaplivaniye on the camshaft from spark plugs over a pusher of the valve (fig. 2.51) . Squeeze tool handles, at the same time the pusher of the valve will be drowned down, and establish an emphasis (fig. 2.52) between edge of a pusher and the camshaft . Remove the special tool for a valve pusher utaplivaniye. An edge of the screw-driver or tweezers take an adjusting washer and measure by a micrometer its thickness.

Release cars since 2001

Fig. 2.53. Measurement by a pusher head thickness micrometer on release cars since 2001


If gaps of valves differ from the required values, remove the camshaft (or camshafts) and pushers. Measure by a micrometer thickness of a head of a pusher (fig. 2.53) .
All models
Determine thickness of a new adjusting washer or head of a pusher by a formula:
N = T + (AND — V),
where And — the measured gap, mm;
N — the settlement thickness of a new adjusting washer or head of a pusher, mm;
T — thickness of the removed adjusting washer or a head of a pusher, mm;
V \nominal gap, mm.
Choose an adjusting washer or a pusher with thickness, the closest to settlement.
In spare parts adjusting washers from 2,5 to 3,3 mm thick with a step of 0,05 mm, and pushers from 5,060 to 5,740 mm thick with a step of 0,020 mm are delivered.
Release cars till 2001
Turn a bent shaft of the engine in situation at which camshaft cams over the valve demanding adjustment will be directed up.
Install the special tool for a pusher utaplivaniye on the camshaft from spark plugs over a pusher of the valve (fig. 2.51) . Squeeze tool handles, at the same time the pusher of the valve will be drowned down, and establish an emphasis (fig. 2.52) between edge of a pusher and the camshaft . Remove the special tool for a valve pusher utaplivaniye. An edge of the screw-driver or tweezers take an adjusting washer if it was not taken earlier. Instead of it establish a new washer. Again install the special tool for a valve pusher utaplivaniye. Squeeze handles of the special tool and remove an emphasis.
Measure by the probe a gap in the valve drive.
Repeat operations on replacement of adjusting washers on other valves demanding adjustment of a gap.
Release cars since 2001
Establish pushers with the settlement thickness of a head, previously having oiled them engine. Also apply a butter layer on the internal part of a pusher contacting to a valve rod.
Install the camshaft (camshafts).
All models
Establish a cover of a head of the block of cylinders, screw spark plugs and connect to them tips of high-voltage wires or the coil of ignition.
