Looking for Valve adjustment instructions

Does anyone have valve adjustment instructions for a 2003 Honda Civic EX (4 door) AT, I believe it has the 1.7 engine.

I have a 2002-2003 Civic Hatchback Service Manual but I am not fully confident the instructions and more importantly the feeler gauge settings would be the same. Can someone confirm the 2003 Civic hatchback has the same engine as a 2003 EX sedan?

Does anyone have the instructions or at least the feeler gauge settings for intake/exhaust valve spacing? Or if someone could point me to a Service Manual for my model that can be obtained "online" I would appreciate it.

Thanks!
Boots
