sounds a bit concerning diagnosing sticking valves without doing a compression test! basics first! Also there is no such thing as sticking valve, a valve not seating is more likely hense pressure test, or leak back test.
Check the throttle position indicator is set correctly.

Bunch of things it could be. Kind of hard to figure out exactly what from a one post description on the Internet, though.

Who is "they" that are diagnosing the problem without looking at it? And if they're diagnosing, why *haven't* they looked at it?
