It could cause compression to drop a little if it is stuck open flooding the cylinder but it is very unlikely. You more likely have a problem with valve or camshaft. My goal is to provide 5 star service so please let me know if you have any questions, thanks.

This would either mean you have a valve problem, vale spring or possibly worn camshaft Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
