Valve engine problem Brisbane - CRACKED

Under certain conditions such as excessive high engine operating temperatures valve heads may crack. Complete pieces of the valve head will suddenly fallout. This will be accompanied by immediate engine noise and miss-firing.  This condition is usually the result of continued use under constantly changing conditions. (constant heavy / light load and temperature changes). With these driving conditions careful inspection of all valves and associated components will be necessary. Any suspect valve should be replaced as the operating conditions are common to every cylinder. Other valves may have cracks from the outer edge towards the centre of the valve head. An example of a vehicle operating under these conditions could be a mail delivery van going from full throttle to idling between each delivery. The constant change between excessively high temperatures and normal temperatures alters the structure of the valve material and cracks begin to form. With continued use under these constantly changing conditions the valve will eventually crack so a piece will suddenly become dislodged. Where as consistent overloaded conditions with constant high temperatures can change the valve material differently to become soft or malleable and the valve head will tulip or have a concave appearance.
