Thumbs up No valve adjustment needed at 26K miles!

Got the 24K service done a little late (just shy of 26K), and my tech said that the valves were fine. In fact, he recommended that I skip the valve check, but we did it anyway. All checked out OK.

I thought valve check intervals were at 18k, so next would be 36k. You're talking miles, I'm assuming, since you're from US.?

I had mine checked at 30k kilometers (the correct interval) and they also required no adjustment. They also suggested it was not necessary and I should skip it. It would seem "no adjustment" is the norm.
