    Broken valve spring should be obvious. It will be physically broken or have a serious hairline crack. It will be obvious.

    Valve will have to be looked at when the heads are off. If you do that, check the lifters out for being collapsed. That's a common problem also.

    All this is really just shooting in the wind, as its impossible to diagnosis over the internet. I'm just trying to give you ideas.
