I have more of a tech question. I was told when I bought my car that at 4500rpm, I'd "float the valves". From what I understand, it's a condition of old, tired valve springs, is that right?
If so, is it a job I can do on my own? I have checked prices online for springs, but am not sure if that's all that would need to be replaced to get it good to go. I am comfortable enough twisting wrenches that I feel i can tackle it, or is it just too involved to do in my garage(well equipped mind you).
Thanks in advance!
