Question about 2000 Honda Civic
2000 civic 4cyl, misfiring cylinder 3, plugs and wires good, is it possible to have a burnt exhaust valve and what would be the best way to find out? the engine light was on and before i could fix it it began flashing, meaning something more major had occured. i pulled the valve cover and assume i will have to pull the head-any tips advice are welcome!!
Put the valve cover back on. Get a compression tester and with all spark plugs removed test the compression on all cylinders. They shoudl be aproximately 10percent of each other value. If one or more are low put an once of oil into the cylinder and see it the compression rises quite a bit. If it doesn not then you know it is a valve. If you have two next to each other,with low readings then you have a head gasked or head problem. Good luck.
