Testing for Leaking/Bent Valves
--Please Read-- :)
Some of the best advice I can offer you about fixing your car is to search for an online forum related to your car, or even for your specific engine. If you have a popular car or engine, this can be an amazing tool in diagnosing and fixing cars yourself!
1. Get kerosene, gasoline, or break cleaner.
2. Tilt head on its side, with the ports of the valves you're testing pointing up and exposed.
3. Fill the intake or Exhaust ports with the liquid you chose, make sure to use enough liquid to cover the back of the valve head completely inside the port.
4. Look at the valve surface in the combustion chamber for leakage. (Let it sit for several minutes)
5. If there is a leak, you could have a bent valve or just a bad seal. You might have to replace the valve, or just use some lapping compound to lap the valve/seat to resurface.
6. Repeat for the other side if you wish.
7. This is a great time to replace valve seals if you have noticed they are worn too much.
8. If you have any questions, please post them here and I'll try to answer them quickly.
You just tilt the head on one side or the other depending whether you want to test the intake or Exhaust valves. I'm testing the intake valves in this video. I did this way because I didn't have the leakdown test equipment, but also because I wanted to replace my head gasket anyway. I wouldn't say this is the best way to test initially if you suspect leaking or bent valves because it requires you remove the head. Try just a regular leakdown test first. But if you're taking it off anyway it's pretty nifty and doesn't require the leakdown test tools. There are several methods to do this, this is just the one I chose in my situation.
A warning about Ebay sellers, I bought a car from a seller because of what the add read, now I know that some people will lie just to get a sale.
I did post this video on another channel last year, and it had quite a lot of views, views I think wasted as they could be collected here instead.
This video shows some of a project in which my dad and myself tried to repair the head gasket on a k-series Rover 416, if only it was as simple as that.
