Thanks Kurt and Warren for your advice. I think I will try the compression test. If the valves are out of adjustment, that will tell me which one to re-adjust.

If there was carbon holding a valve open, wouldn't I have adjusted the valves too TIGHT, not too loose? Hopefully I didn't burn a valve by running it for 10 minutes on five cylinders.
Like Mike said, yes they would be too tight, keeping the valve from shutting completely resulting in low or no compression and a bad running car.
