It will vary too much between gauges to give you a definitive answer, probably between 150 and 175. The key thing you should be looking for is consistency. Crank the engine for the same amount of time for each cylinder, about 3 seconds. The readings should all be very close to each other, within about 15%.

What motor does it have


It could have a 4 Cyl 2.0 liter or a 6 Cylinder V6 2.5 liter. I'm sure anyone that looks under the hood could tell you.
