Hi posted earlier about a blown turbo,
The thing is -

Would the car idle over ok and rev ok when parked up if a valve was bent or a conrod bent ?
would it be struggling all the time and not just when driving ?
and is there a test i can do , such as compression testing ?

also - if a valve was bent how easy is it to change a valve ? once i have the head off (im fine with taking head off)
i did work at a garage for a couple of years and remembed grinding a valve in with the paste and stick

Have something to contribute?

i wouldnt advise driving the car or starting the engine for that matter

get it checked out asap

the work itself (valve) isnt too bad, just the labour incurred, takes a while to do the work

bent conrod? not sure about that as ive only done valve work once, never gone that far before
