the valves arent adjustable on these engines. you probably have carbon acumulating on the valvetrain. Try some engine cleaner treatments. there s a product GUMOUT that I used in the past on a slant six motor with this same issue. You pour it in your engine before changing the oil and let it idle for 5 min and then drain it and fill it like usual, it clean some of the crap out. Theres also fuel system cleans, that will help clean your intake valve, as they tend to build up carbon too. I like the TECHTRON brand by chevron. We use it at work almost exclusivly. It is meant to be pour into the tank when you fill up but we jsut pour it threw the throttle body little by little liek you woul dwith other intake cleaners. Smoke liek a MOFO though so dont do it in the garage.
