Default Valve Adjustment?

I went out to my car the other day and started my car. My corner light was out so I went to fix it. I heard a ticking from my engine. It's gotten louder within the last few days and only occurs while the car is warming up. Once warmed up the ticking goes away. Is this a sign of a valve adjustment being needed or something else?

You do need to adjust your valves every 15k-20k regardless. Adjust them, see if the noise goes away.

I thought they were supposed to be done every 50k. Thanks for the tip.

No sir, 15k-20k. Better to do it every 10k of course.

Thanks. If this is the case shouldn't I replace my cam as well(it's a D16Z6)? Any other opinions.

Just adjust them first before you buy parts you may not need.

I'm going to adjust the valves. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't something else more serious.

No, it's nothing serious. Adjust the valves, it'll go away. The only way you'll need to replace any of the valvetrain is:

1. You fucked your motor by over-revving or bending any of the valves.

2. You used some sort of nitrous and warped or cracked some of the valves.

3. Your camshaft broke to pieces.

4. You want to upgrade your valvetrain to rev to 8,500 RPM after getting it tuned.

How do you adjust your valves? Mine is doing a little bit of ticking too.
