    I also wanted to add... there is that method we call "dollar test"; you take a dollar (doesn't necesarrily have to be a "$" bill, but you get the idea) and put it on top of the muffler tip, half of it on lying on top of the muffler, and the other half hanging within the hole of the muffler. Have someone turn the car on, if the dollar gets sucked and went inside the muffler, you have a valve leak... otherwise the valves are ok... I don't know if this is to all cars, but it's pretty popular to many different car owners and seems to work pretty accurately...

    Interesting. I think I'll try that. Thanks.

    Question: How the heck do you get the dollar bill out once it's sucked into the muffler?

    my guess is that the valve guides and valve seals of one or more exhaust valves are leaking oil down to the exhaust manifold. kaya meron oil sa exhaust. this could be caused by a bent valve guide bore resulting from the piston hitting the valve when the timing belt broke.
