I have narrowed it dowbn to the exact cylinder and have also narrowed it to exaust valve.
I was told that it was a lifter that had went down and wouldnt pump up. I was also told to add substances such as diesel fuel to the oil and also that I could use atf fluid.
I want a few responces to that.

Also I want to see if that has ever happened to anyone else.

Let me know what I should do someone, I do not have a blown head gasket. Also what should I pay to get it fixed if someone has to remove the head.
