Usually the easiest way to tell is to remove the spark plug of the cylinder in question, put a few ounces of motor oil in the cylinder thru the spark plug hole, insert compression tool and crank over a few then reset compression tool and test. If compression rises then the issue is related to the rings being damaged and the engine will have to be tore down fully to repair. If the oil doesnt make much of a difference then the problem is probably a leaking valve or valve related issue. If you have the knowledge you can inject compressed air with that cylinder and see if you hear air hissing through the intake manafold or exhause manafold as that would support issue being with valves.
Hope this helps

The torque converter is a key functional part of the automatic transmission. The car computer detected a malfunction and set the P0704 code. Most likely you have over 100k miles already so it could be problems with the transmission. Most mechanics will reset the light and code if you are not having any transmission problems. It the problem comes back you will need to service or replace the transmission. Best thing to do is to take the car to a mechanic you trust and find the best and cheapest way to address the malfunction.

Low overall compression in 1996 honda accord 4cyl 129.75 psi avg.


the compression pressures are on the low side. The indications are worn rings as the pressure readings come up when the ring seal is improved with the addition of oil. The bores will be worn in a taper and if the head was to come of there would be a noticeable lip where the top ring stops in the cylinder
rings and cylinders wear equally but rings suffer from a loss of tension, and an increased ring gap that allows more compression to escape to the sump
Do you need to do something about it--
if there is an oil consumption problem( smokey) then yes
If the economy is acceptable to you then --no --not immediately
What should you consider in making a decision----
1. good engines are available from japanese spares ( imported engines with less than 30.000klms on the engine for a fair price
2. consider what is termed a "short motor" which is the block,crank, pistons ,rings,oil pump and sump all new
What you should not consider is a quickie fix--set of rings and nothing else as this will cost you more in the long run.

Cranks won't start


First you must check to see if engine is mechanical sound by performing a compression test. remove the spark plugs install a compression gauge in the spark plug hole and crank engine about 4 cycles compare readings to all cylinders reading should be around 125-150 psi readings in the 50 psi range possible jumped or broken timing belt. If engine is mechanically sound test for spark at the spark plugs use a spark plug laid against valve cover and have some one crank it over look for the spark to jump the gap. A no spark problem is internal in the distributor.

1988 Accord with automatic tranny...never has had any "get up and go" then D4 drive went out..also compression is 125 on all 4 cylinders..adding oil to each cylinder brings them to 150..I drive I in D3...


run fault codes and check for TCM failure as it appears that the OD section is not working Although the compression appears low a constant 125 psi is an indication of a good motor and remember that the amount of oil used will increase the compression pressures if the rings are good . It would be of concern if a cylinder with oil did not respond with a rise in compression indicating weak rings are scored bore. Have an oil pressure test done on the gear box to ensure that every thing inside is as it should be and check the band/clutch adjustment as the rpm at 60 mph should be around 3200rpm

98 honda accord v6 only has 90 psi compression


90 psi compression is the minumun for gas engine to ignite, you have low compression what is the compression next to it? The compression on Honda V6 is 200psi. you can have a valve problem a blown head gasket, Also make sure your compression gauge is accurate by using another compression gauge

1997 honda accord vtek 2,2 I have engine compression in one of 125 and nothing in the other 3 any suggestion


Did the timing belt break? Or did it over heat? ethere way you will need to do a valve job on the cylinder head, but before you do that, do a wet cylinder compression test, shoot some oil in the cylinder's then do a compression test, if compression goes way up, then you have bad piston rings and the engine will have to be overhaul or replace.

Cylinder #1 not working, I have spark and fule but no compression


If you have screwed in a compression tester and the cylinder is not producing any psi the next step is to determine if it is a faulty valve or the piston rings. remove the plug from the bad cylinder squirt three or four squirts from an oil can into the spark plug hole check compression before and after oil is introduced into the combustion chamber if the compression reading goes up 30 -50 psi your rings are bad if there is no change one of the valves is burn out and you need valve job

Running on 5 cylinders and needs new coil


If the cylinder is not working because of spark a coil may solve the problem. If the cylinder is not working because of compression, it may be a bad valve intake or exhaust bad piston rings etc. A guide to go by is when you check the compression with a compression guage. The difference shouldn't be more than 10 psi between each. Good Luck

Security system/battery


plz check the following and update me
1. Fuel (To be exact proper air/fuel ratio, normally it is about 14/1)
2. Spark (in appropriate moment)
3. Proper timing (the valves should open and close only in appropriate time)
4. Compression in the cylinders (Normal compression is 120 - 170 psi. The engine won't start if the compression is lower than 70 - 80 psi.)
