Not sure what you are asking, you found the problem ....the valve is not seated properly in its seat or the edge of the valve is burned or the valve seat has slipped out of place make sure you are on the compression stroke for that cylinder before condemning the valvetrain

1994 Saturn SL... Began putting while driving. Sluggish response to pedal. Now starts, revs to about 3000, then dies. Changed the ECTS, Cleaned the EGR... Still won't hold idle. HELP PLEASE!!!

Try cleaning the throttle valve and the idle speed control air bypass valve. Only use throttle valve spray cleaner and harsh abrasives, soak them and clean with the throttle valve with a soft cloth. Soak the idle speed control valve for an hour and then blow it out with compressed air.

Rough idle multipule misfire

Hi. The most common cause that I have found for an " only idle misfire" is low compression. The engine needs at least 100 psi of "dry " compression to idle smoothly in most cases and if any cylinders are higher or lower by more than 20 percent of any other cylinder, you will also have an idle misfire condition felt. Should you perform a compression test, make sure to disable the igntion system completely, not just move the ignition wires out of the way as you will still have spark and the fuel injectors will still inject fuel in nearby proximity to possible ignition source. Always perform two tests, "dry" and "wet" compression. "Dry" is warm engine with spark plugs removed. "Wet" is after performing "dry" test add a few drops of light oil into cylinders and perform compression test again to see if the number rise. If they rise, you have worn piston rings or cylinder walls. If they do not rise, you likely have worn valve seats, misadjusted valves, or head gasket issues, possibly cracks in the cylinder head. If you need to know how to compression test with a tester in detail, message me back and I can help. I'm assuming you may already know due to the fact you state you replaced all the parts likely by yourself so you probably have strong technical merit.

I have a problem with my econovan, i havent had a service done to it in over 6 months and now when i took it to a guy to service it, its been blowing blue / white smoke only on cold motor so i did some...

Hello, I have several suggestions for you. Your problems can still be with the cause of the blue smoke. You need to get a compression test done on the motor either with an elaborate test machine at a Dealer or Tune-up shop or use an old-fashion compression gauge. With the valve cover off and engine running you can also push on the valve spring with your thumb and weak valve springs will cause the engine to miss. Sometimes the weak springs can be detected with a Vacuum gauge, showing a bouncing needle. Your valve stems may be gummed up from the bad oil seals you changed.

The blue smoke is also a sign that the oil rings for the pistons are worn out or have rotated to give a bad seal. When the engine warms, the rings expand and helps eliminate the smoke. Check your sparkplugs for oil staining. Your sparkplugs may be fouled and this condition is called "blow-by".

You can check and clean your EGR valve because it needs to seat or your engine can not idle smoothly. Check the Intake manifold for loose bolts, then use a water mist around the seams to see if the Intake gasket is leaking. Just use an old spray bottle filled with water and spray the engine while it is running.

I hope my solutions are very helpful to you in finding the problem.

Cleaned out carburator on a F100 straight 6. Now

I would suspect there is dirt in the idle system, did you blow the jets and passages out with compressed air.

Engine idle speed

Sounds like you idle air control valve is starting to mess up. You can actually take this off and clean it with throttle body cleaner and it should help get your idle back to normal. As is sounds the idle air control valve controls how fast/slow your car idles. It is located on the throttle body normally held on with a couple of screws. The throttle body is where the air duct hose coming from the air filter box ends at the engine block. Here is a picture of what you are looking for: a483326.jpg
Make sure that you clean the valve portion and not the electrical plug with the throttle body cleaner. Let it air dry or blow lightly with compressed air before putting it back on. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

Rough idle,blow by ; blows oil cap into my hand when i unscrew it no water in the oil,checked injectors they seem good could it be head gasket?

Do a compression test to the cylinders, you could have a burnt valve or bad piston ring. Keep me posted, if you can not get a compression test gauge you can always do the oil school method and pull the spark plugs and read the spark plugs condition's. Good luck and be glad to help.
