Well A high-rpm engine condition in which the valve lifters lose contact with the cam lobes because the valve springs are not strong enough to overcome the momentum of the various valve train components. The onset of valve float prevents higher-rpm operation. Extended periods of valve float will damage the valve train. rice

in other, other words its when your valves dont pop closed fast enough and the cam lobe is no longer in contact with the valve
