2003 Ford Escape- 3.0L V6
I had a misfire in cylinder #4. Did a compression test a that cylinder only had 80lbs of compression. Problem was a burnt valve.
The car was missing with very low compression 45psi in #1. Did a leak down test but couldn't tell where it was leaking from. I just got the head off and one of the valves was burnt very slightly.

We took the car in and it had a bad valve - it was missing while we drove it. They took it apart and all 4 valves were burnt.
