Good Morning All,

I was wondering if anyone knew whether or not Viggens happen to have Valve Lash Adjustment? I imagine it's likely to be the same on all the newer 4cyl saabs, so if anyone knows, please chime in.

Cheers :D

For some reason I can't remember for sure, but I believe the 9-3s have hydraulic lifters.
So hydraulic lifters would preclude my having the ability to adjust them? I dont know much about the mechanics of my heads, just that the valves much open and close, and that they are driven by a camshaft...

Or at least that's what's supposed to happen :roll: :cry:

If they're hydraulic, they're not adjustable. That's the point of hydraulic lifters - they pump up to remove all the clearance.
