1994 Honda Accord w/ Bent Valve

A video illustrating how your 94 Accord's engine will probably sound if it has a bent valve. Bent valves often happen in cars containing intereference engines, such as this particular model of Honda. They occur most often when the timing belt breaks during operation of the engine. This is an expensive repair, requiring the engine head to be dismanted. To avert this disaster, change your timing belt every 90k miles or sooner. This particular car had about 178k miles on it at the time of the video. There was a bent valve in cylinder 2, and the cylinder lost all compression.

How To Diagnose Sticky Engine Valves
Use a piece of paper and diagnose a sticky of stuck engine valve for FREE! Why pay somebody to tell you if you're car's running right or not when you can do it yourself.... Sticky engine valves are caused by buildup of gunk in the engine over time and caused when the valve is no longer able to slide in and out easily when the camshaft pushes on the valve stem. There are many simple fixes and some that are not so simple and are more indepth. This video is not about how to vix a sticky engine valve but rather how to diagnose it for free. If your vehicle is lacking the power that it once was, and if it is getting poorer and poorer gas mileage then you may have a sticky or stuck engine valve. Many times you will notice a rough idle when you first start up the engine or you will notice a small "backfire" when you let off the gas. These are all signs that your Exhaust valve/valves may be sticking. To diagnose if this is the case, simple hole a piece of paper up against the tailpipe and if the paper is sucked against the tailpipe or is flapping in and out rather than only being forced out, you probably have a sticky or stuck open Exhaust valve.
