    Exactly what are you looking for help with ?

    It seems obvious if a mechanic has pressure tested it and found that there is no or little compression in a cylinder due to a bent valve the only thing that will bring your car back to life is to get it fixed.

    But maybe if you have been driving it for a period with the bent valve you might have fecked the engine totally....
