XC90 FWD L6-3.2L VIN 98 B6324S (2007)
Note! Measurements should only be taken on a cold engine. A suitable temperature is approximately 20°C (68°F).
The camshaft cams on the cylinder whose valves are to be measured should point straight up in the direction of the valves.
Tighten the screws of the press tools. M7. Refer to Specifications, B6324S See: Engine, Cooling and Exhaust/Engine/Specifications/Mechanical
999 5752 Feeler gauge See: Tools and Equipment/999 5752 Feeler Gauge
Press with your finger so that the feeler gauge lies parallel with the top of the lifter (see figure). In order to obtain as correct a reading as possible, move
the feeler gauge laterally when measuring clearance.
Valve clearance measured on a cold engine (approx. 20°C/68°F) should be: Exhaust valve: 0.45 ± 0.05 mm.
999 7261 Position sensor See: Tools and Equipment/999 7261 Position Sensor
Repeat the work by loosening the screws of the press tools and rotating the camshaft until the next cam pair is correctly positioned. Tighten and continue
measuring until all exhaust valves have been measured.
Note the results carefully.
Correcting measured clearance
Remove the press tools. Lift off the camshaft. Adjust clearance by replacing the lifter. Alternative lifters are available as a spare part/spare part kit.
Reinstall the camshaft and press tool. Tighten to 17 Nm. Check valve clearance again on the adjusted valves.
When correct valve clearance has been measured
Remove the press tools.
Install the valve cover. Refer to: Valve cover, B6324S See: Engine, Cooling and Exhaust/Engine/Cylinder Head Assembly/Valve Cover/Service and
