How do I do poppet valve cleaning?

I have a Chevy ZR2.

You can clean the valves by pulling the head off. You can then remove the valves and clean them. Once you have finished cleaning the valves you are going to want to install a new head gasket and then put the head back on. Make sure you follow the manufacturers torque settings when installing it.

In most cases it's wise to visit your local dealership or auto-motive expert when attempting a repair on this level as it is dangerous and often expensive if done incorrectly. You're going to need some cleaning solvent, a sturdy rag. Make sure you kill the engine and keep your hands clear of the turbines.

First you pull head off. Take valves out and clean them. When you finish cleaning them install a new head gasket then put head back on. Follow all manufacturer torque settings when you install it. Its best to consult a local dealership or auto-motive expert to make sure a dangerous expensive job like this is done right.
