1999 V70R Possible Burnt Valve?

MVS Forum member HWG09 asks how to tell if his ’99 V70 R has a burnt valve, and what follows is literally pages of discussion on how to diagnose and treat burnt valve conditions.

Just in case I got a new coil in case #2 was bad. I put the new plugs in last night along with the coil and nothing changed. Still shaking.

Today I tried the new coil in every cylinder with no luck. So I’ve still got a shaking engine and CEL.

With the MAF Sensor I cannot for the life of me get the old one off of the hose. It twists around no problem but will in no way separate enough to pull it off. I thought it best to clean the existing sensor before installing my new one but no way to get it off. Any ideas?

I don’t really want to take the car back in to the shop since I’ve pretty much done everything they were gonna do but I’m not sure what my next step is.

Here is a video of how the engine is shaking these days…
