    . . . and considering how many parts need to be taken off to get at the tappets, I really wonder if it will actually be done, even though it will appear on the bill.

      customer support and my dealer have just confirmed that it is only every 30k now, was every 15k.. good news as last time i looked i did not see any dealer have a "clean room" for removing the top off my engine

        When I was having noise problems with my NP DiD and wanted the Tappets checked, the Dealer pointed out he had trouble finding staff who could do Tappet adjustments - and that was for the NP where it was easy to just take off the Rocker Cover.

            I'll be putting marks on the Bolts/Covers so I'll know if the Rocker Cover has even been taken off.

              Why Diesel engines

              Why is it that Diesels need tappet adjustments? Modern petrol engines, mitsu included normally have hydraulic lash adjustment. Are Toyotas and Nissans the same? is there a reason why the technology lags for the diesels or is there another underlying reason?

                  i am guessing it is to keep emissions low and the dpf happy

                    my guess is it's two fold ...maybe the service loads are higher and hydraulics might not be up to it ...and the oil contains a lot more particulate which may tend to impair the operation due to sludge build up ... just a guess ....

                    I am in for 90K service with the DID next week and mine have never been touched ... my thinking is if they are set correctly in the factory any wear would be less than the capability of the "service person" to adjust them ..and as pointed out the ingress of dirt into the engine doing the job along with the breaking of the oil seal on the rocker cover puts it into the "if it aint broke don't fix it category"

                      They need adjustment because they use solid lifters. Not because it is some sort of rort.

                      it is actually fairly quick and easy to do on the NP. Took us all of 45 mins to do ourselves but would suggest it could be done a little quicker with experience. A couple on the exhaust side were out a bit.

                        Because the Injectors go in through Rocker Cover, getting the Rocker Cover off to adjust Tappets is a lot more involved.

                            It isn't just "removing the injector pipes".

                            Had mine done today. A few hours work. There is a bit of removing to do.

                            Cleanliness is critical.

                            Being common rail and the pipes going through the tappet cover it is not a 45 minute job.

                            MM charge up up $900. I didn't pay anywhere near that much through my mechanic.

                              I had mine adjusted at the 90000 service and I could hear the difference.
