Question In Need of a Mechanic

I need a mechanic in Missouri who can do a valve lash adjustment on my Accord. The dealerships want 250. I would rather spend a bit less. Thanks for any help

Get a set of feeler gauges and a shop manual and try to do it yourself!

Yeah, it's not that difficult.

$60 HELM book
$20 feeler gauge
$20 couple wrenches if you don't already have them

Less than half the cost, and you get to keep the book and tools.
