Question about 2004 Chevrolet Malibu
I replaced my timing chain, and noticed my intake valve was stuck open. did i bend a push rod. or could there be something else wrong.(i have my camshaft covers off, i would like to solve this problem before putting the covers back on)
If you mean when the rocker arm cames up,the valve stays down,don't put the covers on yet. Can't see a push rod doing that,valve guide seized or bent valve bent,seems to me the heads will have to come off.You could pull the plug,push about a foot of nylon rope in the cylinder,turn it over by hand till you feel the interference ,then you can take the valve spring off and see if the valve is bent or stuck,either way.........trouble
