Re: Piston to valve clearance.



If the cam to crank timing is off then yes.  Otherwise no, the motor can't run with them open when it's on the compression stroke.  So if you slip time because of a weak chain (of timing belt if it's a newer car) or if it was installed incorrectly they it can happen.  But that's not the norm. 
 
Here is a link, you can see how different motors work, it's a fun way to kill some time.
