A mechanic told you that? ha! the celicas don't have lifters. Its a little tricky setting the valve clearence. it takes a special tool from toyota and you need the repair manual, theres a chart telling what size shims to use according to what the clearance is now and what size shim is on the valve.

Actually it can be done without any special tools besides some feeler gauges and a micrometer
