intake valve noise can be heard through a leak in the intake manifold, from either the MAP sensor port, the Tee to the fuel pressure regulator and the crank-case breather, or the charcoal canister port near the thermostat.

Checking the valve clearances is easy, changing them involves removing the cam towers and replacing shims.
