    1) Valve adjustment
    2) Coil pack cracked
    3) Injector dirty/clogged

    In Ca there is a 15 yr/150,000 mile warranty on emissions related parts. In your warranty book the last 2 pages define emissions warranties as they apply in your state. All above items are fixable by the Honda service tech if the tech is worth his salt. As long as you've had your filter changes done and maintenance kept up, warranty shouldn't be a problem, but again... valve adjustments are a service item like air cleaners.
    Curtis,
    what is the cost for cleaning the dirty injectors for the honda GX?

      No, BMW Ultimate Service includes maintenance costs for 4 years or 50,000 miles, but this is separate from the factory limited warranty coverage.

        Could someone please post the intake and exhaust valve clearance data for a 2011 Civic GX 1.8L SOHC?

        Thanks

            I checked and it's not there...

            Anyone have the data?

            Thanks

            BTW - I've seen vacuum hose diagrams, engine ignition timing info, etc in the past, but I've never seen valve clearances.

              that is - I've seen vacuum hose diagrams, engine ignition timing info, etc in the past, but I've never seen valve clearances on a sticker in the engine compartment...

                It's common on cars with mechanical lifters (these days more cars have hydraulic). My 2002 Gx has valve clearance specs on hood.

                  Good advice guys and gals regarding valve adjustment at 30K intervals, thanks. I just had mine done at last service (2002 GX) and minor stumble/hesitation is gone so far.

                            60K intervals considered to be fine per my experienced Bay Area Honda shop.
