I've got an intermittent 'tap, tap, tap' coming from the engine. It has been suggested that one of the tappets / valves needs adjustment which is probably correct given what appears to incomplete combustion in #4 cylinder and a 'popping' heard in the exhaust.
Question: can one adjust the tappets without major disassembly of the engine? I envision being able to take the valve cover off, identify the problem, make an adjustment as needed, button up and go.
