When valve springs fail, your engine can fall apart. You already know that to keep everything running smoothly, valve springs entertain the proper amount of pressure. Thus, if the pressure is too high or too low, it can cause premature wear or improper sealing. If you’re currently entertaining misfire, compression loss, or strange ticking or tapping noises, you may be in trouble. Broken valve springs can cause obvious performance and efficiency issues. Really, it’s not the damaged valve spring itself, but the damage other parts in the combustion chamber incur due to the abnormality.
