i've got a customer's car , a 4 banger mazda , NO POWER at all , i check obvious things , and everything is good , i take off the intake filter , rev the car up and exhaust smoke comes puffing out from the throttlebody , i say bent valve .
now head is out , all valves seeem okay ! , what do you guys think would cause such a thing ? valve timing ? what would screw it ? any tips ?
thank you for your time !

bent valve, bad spring are possibilities. i am assuming you are dealing with a DOHC engine a B series or a z series. The timing belt jumping would do it to it and thats where Wob stands. I would have checked the belt before yanking the head. But since its off double check everything over, seats etc and if its looks good, re do the belt - use a new one and make sure the tensioner is taking up slack correctly - could be the reason it jumped, thats where my money is.
