Engine Valve

Engine Valve

An engine valve is a mechanical component that allows the flow of air and fuel into a cylinder or exhaust gases out of it during the combustion process. Every cylinder features at least one intake and one exhaust valve.

Signs of a bad engine valve

  • Engine misfiring
  • Abnormal oil consumption

Engine valve repair and maintenance

  • If engine valves are repaired or replaced, the engine head should be inspected for wear and damage.
  • Deposits on the engine valves may cause overheating and reduce engine performance.
  • The usage of special fuel additives may help to keep the valves clean.
  • All valves must be properly adjusted. Otherwise, they can overheat and wear out quickly.
