something broke. It lost power. HELP!? I was told by (half wits) that the timing chain had broke...put a timing lite on it and it checks out ok. They told me that the engine had dropped a valve.Don't you have to take the engine out and break it down to determine this? Never had a problem with the car since I inhertered it and it only has 83,000 miles on the engine and it was a 1 owner vehicle, bought brand new in March of 74. My great uncle gave the car to me and I have beeen driving it for about 2 years.Please help if you can and thank you . The people who have my car freely admit that they really don't know what the problem could be.......SDB

what does the car sound like while running? maybe pull a valve cover and check for broken rocker stud or valve spring,maybe pulled stud out of head.
