Sorry for one of these threads but I was just a bit worried by some of the noise from the engine bay. I'm not sure if this is a normal amount of noise or if it needs a valve adjustment or something worse. Any advice/thoughts are appreciated!

Edit: its an '07 with 150K miles

P.S. I'll be replacing both power steering o-rings in case anyone is curious about that.

Sounds pretty normal. You might need a valve adjustment at your mileage.

Not bad.

Somehow, Honda manages to make very quiet engines when they're new, but within a year or two they get clattery.

But the good news is that the clatter does not indicate it's going to be short lived.

Thanks for the replies! I was hoping it was nothing to worry about but wanted to get some opinions from people experienced with this engine. I'd like to get the valves adjusted in the near future when I can actually afford it.

just fyi they can still be noisy after a valve adjustment, so as long as the clearances are in spec you're fine
