Im pretty sure one if not more of my valves are bent, and Ive taken it to a local mechanic and he said thats what it sounds like. How bad is it to continue driving on bent valves.. cuz i dont have the money to get it fixed right now. thanks guys

i'm pretty sure that if you bent your valve, your engine will run like shit if you're lucky! since i haven't bent a valve yet, i'm just assuming here, but the common cause of bent valves on hondas are caused by a broken timing belt or somehow, the cam timings have suddenly gotten outta specs, but that's unlikely... but if either of those occured, your car won't be running right now.

IF your car ran with a bent valve, the sound would be horrible that youd shut it off right away. unless its just mildly bent, i have no clue. if you think its bent, dont drive it unless you wanna cause more damage, possibly to something more expensive like the piston head

Well, I know that if are just one or two teeth off the cam gear, say, like when you change a timing belt, the car idles rough as hell and it's noisy. I'd imagine a bent valve may be the same, never had one though...

I would not want to even run the engine, u will further damage the engine like that. Right now your probably running on 3 cys and I wouldnt be supprised if the piston is messed up, such as a crack in it.
