Hey everyone. I have been hearing a ticking sound mostly when I idle, a little bit when I accelerate. I found out it's either the oil level is low or I need a valve adjustment and I just changed the oil and its full, so I am pretty sure I need an adjustment. I have an SLE V6 Solara and it's got 132,000 miles on it. The ticking sound is pretty annoying, not because of the actual sound itself, but mostly because it means my engine isn't as good as it could be lol. I have ocd when it comes to my car looking and performing it's best. Anyway, I looked at Precision Tune Auto Care and they got really good reviews. I got a quote at 500 bucks parts and labor included. I feel like that's really really high and I kinda don't wanna get it done. However, I don't know where else to go and I want a place where I know people will do a good job. I need the valve cover gaskets replaced too so I feel like this would be killing two birds with one stone. Should I get the adjustment done soon? Where should I go? How much should I pay? Thank you!!
