#1

My granddaughter’s husband just bought a very nice '94 Beretta. He brought it over for me to admire and I noticrd a put put put out the exhaust. I think he has a burnt exhaust valve, what do you think It is a 3100 V6

If he’s happpy with it, why would you want to dampen his happiness? Leave well enough alone.


#3

V-6’s always have a “put-put” in the exhaust…


#4

Well 5 are not putting, just one


#5

Doesn’t anyone have anything to say about this? It sounds like the compression is coming right out the tailpipe.


#6

He’s happy right now but he won’t be when it blows up from running on 5 cylinders!


#7

Quit guessing and run a compression test.


#8

Well, I don’t have the equipment or place to do it but I’ll try to get him to do that.

The charge for a mechanic doing this would be slim to nil.
