sticking, or STUCK??.....a stuck valve does not get better... sticking is caused by heat, carbon, gunk build up, if the valve fails to close completely and seal, it soon gets burned and/or bent, and can easily bend a pushrod or flatten a cam lobe ..solvents added to oil take time to dissolve deposits, the damage will have been alrready done..
