You're talking about half the mileage that alot (most?) people on this board have on there engines and I've never heard of anybody needing valve jobs done. Valve adjustments..Yes, every 15000mi. is recommended I believe. I have 147k on my original engine and drive hard often, the valves have only been adjusted. Now, if you neglect that timing chain or (especially) timing chain tensioner then you'll definately be dealing with valves (bent ones). People sometime do valve jobs to these engines to get better flow also. HTH..
