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.

2.5 4-cylinder. Cylinders 1 and 2 have burnt exhaust valves. Put 50psi into cylinder and it held about 8 psi. The rest goes out the tail pipe.
