Bring the piston around so all the intake and exhaust valves are closed and use your compression Gauge hose and see if you can charge the Cylinder with air that may keep the valve close so you can change the valve. Or the old Mechanics way is to remove the spark plug make sure the piston is down take a spool of binding string and push it into the Cylinder leaving the bitter end of the string hanging out of the Cylinder then rotate the engine to bring the piston up so the string is pushing up to the valves and this will keep the valve from dropping in the Cylinder there is a valve spring removal tool you can get at the auto parts store to remove the valve.

To be honest you cant do what you wont to do,,,changing valve springs need the head off,,,,but you could try making a tool to go down into a plug hole to hold the valve up,,, it may work but watch the spark plug threads??? good luck!

How do I change valve stem seals on a Skyteam ST50

This is not a "drive way" repair... you need to do one of two things.. sometimes you can get a connector that can replace the spark plug to keep air pressure in the cylinder (THAT CYLINDER MUST BE AT TOP DEAD CENTER ON THE COMPRESSION STROKE!!!!) that will keep the valves closed..( YOU MUST HAVE A LARGE HIGH PRESSURE-HIGH FLOW AIR COMPRESSOR!!!) you can remove the valve springs one at a time (have a way to compress the springs??) ..and replace the valve stem at a time.. IF you DO NOT have the tools to accomplish this, --- YOU CAN REMOVE THE HEADS.. hold the valves in place and remove the valve springs.. and then change the seals, you must have a valve spring compressor to accomplish this.
Does this seem like something you can do..?? If you have never done this??.. PLEASE just pay a qualified professional to change them!! You will need intake gaskets, head gaskets, valve cover gaskets, valve stem seals.. maybe the valves will need re-seating..
just to name a few things... get the idea...

Framing air nailgun Senco firing valve part question.

The spring is necessary for the head to reset - check your reassembly to make sure the parts are in the proper order and direction - make sure the piston stop in the firing valve is snapped into the head before you reassemble the gun - the head valve shouldn't fall out when you open the head.

Broken valve spring or hole in piston youd know the piston cause you would hear it pull the valve cover and take a good look make sure all is well. might have oil dripping in from valve if spring is broken or weak and not closing all the way you do not have to pull the head to check this just the valve cover and check the valve seals they may be rotted do the small stuff before pulling the head. use a good flashlight and take a good long look with rags in hand go over all the sufaces around the area in question you may have a crack hope not but do a good check of the area did i say do a good check of the area ok

Can i change an intake valve spring without pulling the motor?

yes you can but you need special tools you need an air compressor and hose with a fitting that will screw into your sprrk plug hole. then you need an over head valve spring compressor. the air from the compressor will hold the valve against the head while you remove the valve retainers or collets to remove the spring. then you just assemble it all again is not hard but you do need the right gear

How to fix a dropped vavle

Ive pulled the spark plug out and used nylon rope pushed in the cylinder and bumped the engine over to get the valve back up. Use a peice several feet long and tie a big knot on the end so you dont lose it inside the head. From there just replace the keeper and springs, valve guides. If the valve stem is damaged however, you will have to pull the head.

How difficult is it to replace valves in a 85 Toyota Pickup?

It can be done, but it is classified under the engine overhaul reconditioning, which can be time consuming and expensive for an engine machinist to do. To do it yourself is not usually recommended.--- REMOVAL & INSTALLATION A valve spring compressor is needed to remove the valves and springs; these are available at most auto parts and auto tool shops. A small magnet is very helpful for removing the keepers and spring seats. Set the head on its side on the bench. Install the spring compressor so that the fixed side of the tool is flat against the valve head in the combustion chamber, and the screw side is against the retainer. Slowly turn the screw in towards the head, compressing the spring. As the spring compresses, the keepers will be revealed; pick them off of the valve stem with the magnet as they are easily fumbled and lost. When the keepers are removed, back the screw out and remove the retainers and springs. Remove the compressor and pull the valves out of the head from the other side. Remove the valve seals by hand and remove the spring seats with the magnet. Fig. 1: After compressing the valve spring, be careful removing the keepers--they are easily fumbled 85783113.gif
Fig. 2: Always install new valve stem seals 85783114.gif
Fig. 3: Lightly tap each assembled valve stem to ensure correct fit of the keepers, retainer and seals 85783115.gif

Since it is very important that each valve and its spring, retainer, spring seat and keepers is reassembled in its original location, you must keep these parts in order. The best way to do this to cut either eight (four cylinder) or twelve (six cylinder) holes in a piece of heavy cardboard or wood. Label each hole with the cylinder number and either IN EXp>After lapping each valve into its seat (see Valve Lapping below), oil each valve stem, and install each valve into the head in the reverse order of removal, so that all parts except the keepers are assembled on the stem. Always use new valve stem seals. Install the spring compressor, and compress the retainer and spring until the keeper groove on the valve stem is fully revealed. Coat the groove with a wipe of grease (to hold the keepers until the retainer is released) and install both keepers, wide end up. Slowly back the screw of the compressor out until the spring retainer covers the keepers. Remove the tool. Lightly tap the end of each valve stem with a rubber hammer to ensure proper fit of the retainers and keepers. prev.gif next.gif

93 sundance 3.0L replace the valve seals

it is more than just the valve seals.the 3.0l engine is notorius for the valve guides slipping down into the valve pocket. there is a fix that involves adding a keeper to prevent them from falling but it requires removing heades and taking them apart. yours may have already have had this done so valve seals may fix it.
yes you can change without removing heads you need to have piston at the very top off stroke if off by a little the piston will be forced down by the air pressure so somehow locking crankshaft from moving would be a good idea.
remove plug from a cyl and fashion or buy a fitting to screw into plug hole that will also hook up to a air hose from a air compressor. the air pressure holds the valve closed then you will meed a valve spring compressor designed for removing the springs with head still installed. can rent them at auto parts stores.remove spring and replace seal. then reassemble and move on to the next
but sometimes the valve opens or piston moves down and the valve falls into the cylinder. you can pull it back up and try again or just take the heads off.
my recomendation is just take the heads off they are fairly easy to remove and instal. then have machine shop cut the grooves in the guides and install keeper clips

Rapping noise top of engine even after correct valve adjustment

Is the piston hitting the head? Broken valve spring or bent valve head? Too thin or missing head gasket? You may have to pull the head if nothing obvious.
