: : are my valves stuck?
: The valves may not be stuck, you did not say if you tried turning the crank and seeing if the valves go back down in the block. If you have not tried turning the crank, I would suggest you do that before hammering on the valves. Depending on the stroke and position of the pistons, it is not abnormal for valves to be open at verying hights. Remember, you have four cylinders all drawing fuel and expelling exhaust at different times.
By all means check by rotating the cam via the crank first to check if they are stuck. Sometimes I think the ovious is done first. Bill
