How do i remove the valve guides on a 03 suzuki ltz400?

This is a job the requires specialist tools to remove and set the new guides to the exact position in the head. Remove the head if you can, to save money but take the head to an engineering shop/ engine reconditioning shop and have the job done properly. It will be necessary to have the valve seats re-machined to properly align the valves to the seats for a proper job.

Check compression. If its nill or low, pull a plug and look for raw fuel. Try to look at the top of the piston for impact marks. The valve guide comes loose and the valve will hit the piston causing valve damage. Most instances won't damage the piston to a point of necessitating replacement, but will require removal of the head for a valve job or replacement of the head due to valve damage or chipping of the cylinder head at the valve seat. A reman head isn't much more than the machine shop will charge for a valve job. 6 hour job plus gaskets. Don't let anyone tell you it needs an engine without substantial proof.

The dealership told me my Dodge Dakota need a valve job, they have had it for a week now, and just one week prior to it need this valve job I had it in for a tune up, new battery, and fuel injections...

Yes, but why is a better response. was there a problem before you took it to the dealer or this a additional sale after your "tune up " they said you need a valve job also to keep your engine running great. If you had a problem in the first place the should have addressed it first not sell you 600.00 worth of repairs then slap you with 2000.00 more.

I have oil-fouled plugs. Does the engine need a valve job?

You may have bad valve stem seals or valve guides, which would be replaced with a valve job. But I would also check the compression to see if there are rings needed also.

Bend valves

broken timing belt will bend valves on interference type engines. Usually a valve job with all new valves will fix if pistons are not damaged. Job might not be worth car if its old.

If the compression is down then you may need a valve job or a rebuilt engine. Put a tablespoon of oil in each cylinder and check the compression again. If it comes up then you need a valve job. If it doesnt change then your piston rings and seals are bad and will need a rebuild. If the valve seats are destroyed then chances are you need a valve job.

Cost of valve job?

Depends on where you go to. Call around and ask. I just came from a parts store a few hours ago and asked about a head job...resurfacing and cleaning/inspecting...$138 for BOTH heads...Chevy 350. It shouldn't cost that much at all for you...unless you are looking to get a valve job at the same time. They should call you to let you know after the before-mentioned if you need a grind job. around. And, it should only take a day to get this done. I know taking in a bare head is about $25 to get it hot tanked.

What is a valve job and is a valve job really necessary?

A valve job is when someone (or business) recuts the valves/head to properly seat the valves in the heads to the engine. On a 2007 I really doubt that is necessary. You generally see this done on older cars with higher miles. Now on the same token if its a valve adjustment, then it could be necessary on a newer vehicle once the vehicle is past its "breaking in" period. Hope this gives you some direction. Thanks for using fixya!

Any solution short of a valve job?

I have had the same problem on several chevrolets in the past. The problem was either a broke rocker on the valve trane or the most common is a flat cam lobe. A flat cam lobe will not let the valve open fully or not at all.
