What should idle psi and 2500-3000 rpm psi with a warm engine be.


compression pressure is read at cranking speed with throttle wide open. For petrol engine it is 155-165 psi hot dry with an allowed variation of no more than 10% between adjacent cylinders and around 175 psi hot wet (OIl injected to seal rings)
For a diesel engine it can be 550 psi -650 psi hot dry at cranking speed with the only engine being test while running being a detroit diesel 2 stroke
There is no compression reading done at rpms as it is meaningless

Hi Gurus, My 4JX1 engine is vibrating on idle. Idle speed is about 750rpm. At hgher speed the engine runs smooth. The problem is the engine dies off in the middle of driving. Sometimes it will start again...


Are you running the recommended oil grade? As the injection system is operated by engine oil pressure using the wrong oil grade can prevent your car from starting, running smooth or hard starting! Ideally they require a 5W30 oil grade. Idle speed is controlled by the engine control unit! It's a common rail diesel engine so there's nothing to adjust! The Camshaft position sensor could also possibly be intermittently faulting causing similar symptoms! It's located on the front of the cambelt cover(gray coloured sensor)

2002 Dodge Ram 1500 5.9 liter GAS not Diesel, giving code of p1391 which means cam/crank sensor - we have changed crank sensor and it's running worse - we have to start it about 3 times before it will quit...


most likely its the throttle body sludged up . clean the throttle body and butterfly . this will only help if there is an idling problem . ck for codes and ck freeze frame data for more help

VAN SOUNDS LIKE ITS TRYING TO START AFTER I SHUT IT OFF


this is what we call "dieseling"
it is the engine running WITHOUT spark plugs

This happens when you have leaking injectors and carbon build up in the engine (pistons/valves)

try shutting off the engine while in park
keep your foot on the brake because you might find the engine has enough power to actually move the van

keep us posted

WE HAVE A 2002 DODGE 2500 DIESEL AND IT LUNGES AT LOW SPEEDS. IT THROWS NO CODES WHAT IS IT


My 2001 was doing this...would also cut out randomly mid-acceleration and return to idle. Very fun when trying to get up to freeway speed! Turned out to be an accelerator pedal position sensor. Also threw no codes! Was approx a $500 (part+labor) about 4 years ago.

2004 gmc will not turn off / keeps running even with the key out


Hi, sssprinkinkling.

...even when you turn off the key? Google "dieseling". Click and Clack, the Tappet brothers, say that a too-high idle speed is responsible (http://www.cartalk.com/content/columns/Archive/1995/May/13.html).
