Valve clearance (Cold): 1ZZ–FE: Intake 0.15 – 0.25 mm (0.006 – 0.010 in.) Exhaust 0.25 – 0.35 mm (0.010 – 0.014 in.) click image to see it

OK now some of the 1.8Liter 1 ZZ FE , the Corolla engine you have were used in other cars..GM...and use a "bucket tappet' not shown on these images that goes over the valve spring. If they wear some mechanics use shims instead of buying new, they are $180 for the full 16 piece set $11.25 each

You can make this image bigger and see it does not have "lifters' in the conventional sense, this is the 1.8Liter 1 ZZ FE that came in all Corollas from 1998 to 2012, with the rare exception of the Corolla XRS Trim with the high performance 1.8L 158hp 2AZ FE
