Depending on the engine size, and if all cylinders are low, the timing belt may have jumped a few teeth.

How do I repair low compression in a 2005 ford ranger #4 cylinder


Low compression can be caused by worn piston rings or worn valves. If blue smoke is coming out of the exhaust during high revs then it's more likely to be piston ring wear.

1994 ranger. 2.3 engine. 8plug model. Dead miss in number 2 cylinder. Changed the plugs, wires and coil pack. Still a dead miss. If the person I got the truck from broke the timing belt while the engine...


that engine is a non-interference engine, so it should not have been damaged when the timing belt failed-I'd check the injector and see if it has good compression in the cylinder, and if it is low, squirt oul in the cylinder and test again-if it picks up alot of compression after doing this, you have a bad/broken compression ring, if it does not pick up, it is a valve,

Thomasleticia21@yahoo.comi need a head for my 1986ford ranger, my compression is low


Your cylinder head has aged with the rings, if you put a good head on it the rings will blow out within weeks then you will be doing a ring job. You should look into a swap for a rebuilt engine if you want to keep it running. However you could easily get a late 90s Ranger for less than you are going to spend on a rebuilt engine. That way all the parts will be 10 years newer

Low compression in cylinder 4


When an engine has a cylinder with low compression it will be caused by a mechanical malfunction, and the reasons for low compression in a cylinder can be a bent or burnt intake or exhaust valve, or a valve that is not closing all the way because of a piece of carbon or an improper valve adjustment, the head gasket could be faulty around the compression sealing rings, or the cylinder head could be warped or even cracked, and the piston for that cylinder could be damaged with a crack or a hole, or the piston rings could be worn out or damaged.

The cause of the low compression can be determined without having to dis-assemble and inspect the engine by a "Compression Leak-Down Test" and a good repair shop or someone with a compression leak-down tester and a good air compressor can perform that test.

Rough running, erratic spark


Run a compression test on the cylinders.If reading is low on any drop a little engine oil into the pot. If compression rises you have compession ring problems. Remove all plugs before you try this and place leads away from engine.
