how long can you typically go till it starts ruining valves and burning them on the valve adjustment. my '06 said check and adjust if necessary at 11000. I checked mine at 100000 and they were tighter than spec, but not completely tight with no slack. i'm in the market for another crv, and finding that nobodies done the valve adjustments (even had one tell me that "my mechanic said unless it starts making noise that it isn't worth doing and not to worry). so my question is, how far can these really go, on average, before they start burinng or sticking valves open. what milesage have you guys seen valves ruined because it wasn't done? i'm finding cars with 120-160 on them and assuming it prolly wasn't done ever in it's lifetime, but they're still running...
