    Has anyone with the 3.4L V6 ever needed to adjust the valves? My 1999 has 160k miles on it and I'm replacing the valve cover gaskets, and wondering if I need to plan for checking/adjusting the valves while I'm in there. It would be great to know if anyone else has ever found theirs to be out of spec.
