On the Ford 3.0 Liter Duratec V6 24Valve engine do the valve buckets
and shims need replacement at a specified mileage interval? Or are
they self adjusting hydraulic valves that don't need adjusting? Twin
I have that engine in my wife's 2000 Taurus wagon. Other than the
keys, retainers, springs, seals, stems, and guides, my reference
material only mentions a hydraulic lash adjuster in the cylinder head
teardown section. I never worked on this head, so I'm only going on
what reading material I have.
