Just got my 96 Impala outta the shop and learned it had a potential dancing valve (exhaust) issue. Mechanic stated it was ok to drive. Is that a fact? I feel if the engine isn't 100%, it will fail down the road. Any thoughts?

Slight ticking? Safe to drive on but you may need a valve adjustment to get rid of it. Mine starting doing it after putting in the Jegs system. It may have been doing it before, but the exhaust was so quiet and had so much backpressure that I may not have heard it.

No ticking at all. Apparently, the right side exhaust is backdrafting. Runs smooth as if nothing is wrong.
