    I was about to do a valve adjustment on my 2006 Honda Accord 2.4L. I had watched Eric’s video (very helpful) and am aware that the adjustment must be done with the engine cold. Its about 45 degrees here today in North Jersey, about 25 degrees below room temp. Having been in Quality Control most of my working life, I am aware of how much metal can grow or shrink within a 25 degree temperature swing. With that decided to put it off until a warmer day or until I could get confirmation that setting the valves at this cooler temp would be OK (I am working outdoors). Any thoughts on this? Thanks.

    Id say this is probably your best bet, although i adjusted the valves on my ford small block in 35 degree weather with the engine running. Take it for what its worth but i dont think its going to make a huge difference. And they are very very different engines
