I blew an exhaust valve the other day. I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to seat the valves by hand or by like a tool from autozone or napa. I really dont have the money to get it done at a shop. I am looking for a quick fix. I want it to stop its sputtering and missfiring.

thanks

Define "blew an exhaust valve". Broke a spring? Broke the valve? What? You can set in a new valve on your own, but you're better off taking it to a machine shop and have the whole head done.

How do you know its a valve then, could be a blown head gasket or many other things.
