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 of
the valve to the head. 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
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.

Rotate the engine two times clockwise. The crankshaft tooth that lines up
with the arrow on the left side of the tooth is where it should be. The
timming gears should both say up & the lines line up. The two teeth on both
sides of the line should line up with the other gear. This engine is a
2001. When changing your belt change the tensioner & water pump too.
