Valve Problem?#2 cylinder has 75 psi, #s 1, 3 and 4 have 175 psi compression.

The carbon is not for lack of maintenance. Its caused by bad gas, additives, and oil. As far as $2000. that's about rite for a valve job. To test yourself to make sure its a bad valve do these few steps.
1. Remove spark plug at #2 cylinder
2. Add a few drops of engine oil into the cylinder
3. Now check the compression.
This is called wet compression test. If the compression goes up, the valves are not the issue. If the compression goes up, you have a bad compression ring on that piston. If it is the valves the compression will not increase. As a last resort before you pay a lot of money, get a can of SeaFoam and follow the instruction exact. This stuff works wonders.

My 03 maxima overheated bad and now spitting water out tail pipe and no compression what am i looking at as far as damage head gaskets? or bad heads?

If your lucky just the gasket. It's an aluminum engine and those tend to warp fairly easily when heated up. The only way to be sure is to remove the heads and have the machine shop check them for cracks and warp. If not warped too bad they may be able to be surfaced fairly inexpensively. If cracked it may be cheaper to replace them. That's when I usually head for the wrecking yard. You can do a down and dirty warp test with a metal straight edge laid across the surface and look for air under the straight edge. You have no compression so you should do a compression test before you tear anything apart. If you don't have a compression tester you can rent one from most local automotive parts stores. Remember to remove all the spark plugs at the same time when you do the test. Write down the compression for each cylinder. Your looking for a zero compression cylinder or two cylinders next to each other with low or zero compression. Compare your readings to the spec for your engine. If you get a low cylinder you can determine the head or rings by squirting a little bit of motor oil into the cylinder. Retest and if the compression goes up its the rings. If the compression stays the same it's in the heads. Good luck.

We just bought an 06 VW Passat 2.0 Turbo, after 200 miles it shut off while running down the interstate. The dealer stiffed us and said it wasn't covered. The timing belt appears to be good with no...

there must be some compression if the cam shaft is turning
indicates that the belt has broken or stripped off
I say some compression because if the cam shaft is turning then at least 2 pistons will be recording a pressure however low it may be
if as you say there is no compression ( a compression test has to be done to determine that) then that means that the valves are not opening or closing to get a compression stroke

No compression

A car won't start without compression.
Request the compression numbers from him, if he hesitates he's probably trying to rip you off.

Randomly not starting could be a half dead fuel pump or just a loose connection under the hood causing sporadic spark to the plugs.

After doing a head gasket repair 2001 Chrysler Sebring 2.7 v6 won't start. It makes a noise like growling but does not turn over. My mechanic is saying we may need to rebuild bottom half but makes no...

You say that it does not turn over, how would you know there's no compression if it don't turn over, unless you mean if won't start up, lets go with it won't start up, if you have no compression, did you bleed down the lifter's, if you did not, with the lifter pump up will hold the valves open and you will not have compression, will be very hard to start engine, remove lifter and bleed them down, also make sure you replace the oil just in case there's water in the oil pan when heads were removed, if there is water could lock engne, now you would need to overhaul lower engine, hope this was very helpful.

Hi guys! Own a golf 1.4 carb! 2004, I'm having problems with idel! Heavy on fuel and my compression is low now, I've changed my base plate, set the co,z on my car but still can't seem to get it...

Does exhaust smell like petrol - low on power? If so it's running on 3 or 2 legs, meaning ignition in one of the cylinders is not burning fuel. This causes irregular idle and high fuel consumption.

Low compression might indicate a leaking head gasket, worn cylinder rings. Remove the oil dipstick and check if there's pressure coming from the sump. This indicates worn cylinder rings - loss of compression.

I've got an 89 ford ranger 2.3 4cyl. i'm not sure if i've got tdc on the compression stroke and can't find a diagram or pic to show me where the marks should be.

install a pressure gauge on the number one cylinder and when you see the needle move, you're on the compression stroke, you can also use your finger to plug the spark plug hole and turn the engine, then again when you feel or hear air coming out, you're on the compression stroke, then just insert a long screwdriver in the hole and turn the engine until you see the screwdriver reach the highest point before it starts falling down again, and there you go, you have top dead center.

I need to do compression testing on my Delica 4M40 engine. Could any one tell me what the compression rate is?

it's simply the total volume of the cylinder and combustion chamber above the piston at the bottom of its travel (referred to as bottom dead center [BDC]), divided by the combustion chamber volume above the piston at top dead center (TDC).
Why is knowing your true compression ratio that important? With today's lower-octane grades of gasoline, it's important not to exceed known maximum allowable compression ratios for various engines or you may experience detonation that will quickly destroy your engine.

The passenger rear side shock is knocking about. How do I change the shock if it is broken or has just come loose? Appears to be at the top under trunk

They're easy to change - just compress, remove, compress, install - unless they're coil - over - shock, then the spring needs to be compressed (DANGEROUS) and removed as well.
If it's just loose, try replacing the shock tower mounts.
