My 1990 mx6 non turbo is having difficulties with her #2 cylander.... burning oil. Did a compression test and it is comparable to the others. thus i dont think its the rings. i think it is a bad valve.... how hard to replace valves...and should i get new ones or get the grinded??? i am open to any suggestions.

It's probably the valve stem seal. Which dosent require removing the head to replace. Is the car smoking? If it does, and the smoke only happens when you accelerate from a stop after sitting at a light or something. Then that's likely the stem seals.
