Hello all,

Halfway through my valve adjustment (01 CR-V SE) the exhaust lash adjuster won't unscrew enough to reach spec. All of the other lashings have been adjusted without issue. I can't possibly imagine why, or how this is possible. Anyone else experience this or have advice?

2.0L 4 speed auto nonVtec.

Either you haven't got the cam follower on the heel of the cam lobe or the valve stem has started to stretch allowing the stem to come up further than is normal.
How many miles on it?
You may have saved yourself a lot of grief if you caught the stem stretching before it actually broke.

108,000 right now. I managed to fiddle with it and got the clearance right. But the adjuster still behaves differently than the others. Perhaps you are right about it stretching. It ticked very loudly for the first few minutes after restarting, but now it is quiet. So hopefully all good!
