I am at 100k miles and it is long overdue, can someone post a link or direct me in how to adjust the valve's in the v6 2003-2007 accord non hybrid thanks. Any necessary tools i can get my hands on also so that will not be a problem. Adjusting the valve's accordingly I am sure to possibly hear less pinging and see higher fuel economy.

WARNING...if you do not know any of the terms listed below...DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS!!!!
THIS IS FOR THE EXPERIENCED DIY...IF YOU HAVE DOUBTS THEN DON't TRY!!!!
I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGES YOU MAY CAUSE....
this is only a guide!!!!


NOTE: Adjust the valves only when the cylinder head temperature is less than 100 ºF (38 ºC).

Remove the cylinder head covers.

Set the No. 1 piston at top dead center (TDC).

Align the pointer (A) on the front upper cover with the No. 1 piston TDC mark (B) on the front camshaft pulley

Select the correct thickness feeler gauge for the valves you're going to check.



Valve Clearance
Intake:
0.20-0.24 mm (0.008-0.009 in.)

Exhaust:
0.28-0.32 mm (0.011-0.013 in.)

Insert the feeler gauge (A) between the adjusting screw and the end of the valve stem on No. 1 cylinder, and slide it back and forth; you should feel a slight amount of drag.

If you feel too much or too little drag, loosen the locknut (A), and turn the adjusting screw (B) until the drag on the feeler gauge is correct.

Tighten the locknut and recheck the clearance.

Repeat the adjustment, if necessary.
