They take the valve cover off and soak it all in some serious stuff for hours and then manually scrub off as much as possible, I do believe it works. It made my car run way better after they did it...

If they are locked open... it'll be hard to stop the car and the rotors will be ice cold.

If they are locked closed, after a drive your rotors are going to be red hot.
