Question about Cars & Trucks
The timing belt slipped....did it bend the valves
Hi the best way to find out if the valves are bent is to put a new belt on and do a conpression test,you can do this yourself quite easerly,you take all the spark plugs out then each cylinder at a time, screw compression tester in the first cylinder turn the engine over about 5 times then read the gage on the com-tester and write them on a peice of papper,then check them against what they should be in the book(haynes manual will help)if the readings are mostly the same then you should be fine,if one is down one up then dosnt look good,some times you can get away with it,
I hope you sort it out,all the best.
