Hi I was doing a timing bent on my 94 Accord and thought I had the timing correct but didnt. I bent the # 3 cylinder valve and was wondering if I need a complete head job or can I just replace that valve. I have heard that I can do either or from friends but wanted a machanics opinion. I am also tight on $. Thanks.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi there,

You can do the one valve no problems, but what you should have done, is a pressure test which will check the condition of all the other valves. Then you can repair any other suspect valves.
