You can probably do it with the engine in the truck, but the head and oil pan have to come off.

What causes a jeep liberty to lose compression from # 1 cylinder

Let me count the ways possible:

  1. Blown head gasket
  2. Cracked head
  3. Cracked block
  4. Bent/broken/damaged valve(s)
  5. Cracked/broken piston
  6. Broken piston rings
  7. Broken connecting rod or rod pin
The only way you will know which of these is for sure the answer is to tear the engine down to find out. There is no magic fix for your problem.

My 2004 trailbazer makes a knocking noise whan started, it gets quieter as ou drive it, but does not go away

Any knocking noise is more than likely due to worn connecting rod bearings, Crankshaft main bearings or piston or piston pin noise. Connecting rod bearing knocks and piston related noise quite some with warm up, piston noise tends to go completely away after about 5 minutes of run time, but there are exceptions to that run like a cracked piston skirt, crankshaft bearings don't quite very much. It would be my best quests without hearing the noise that you may have either a connecting rod or piston related noise. The best thing to do here is have a trained ear listen to the noise, any experienced technician will know very quickly what the noise is and where it is coming from. These types of noises are only common on high miles engines, with at least 100,000 miles on them is the general run or the engine has been run very low on oil repeated times, or the oil not changed at regular intervals or the engine has been severely overheated. My experience? 35 years as a dealer technican. I'm Master certified in all phases of auto and light truck repair.

The diaphram can tear, but when this happens it typically leaks gas into the crankcase. Is there gas in your oil? If no, recommend you take the float bowl cover off and see what's going on when you start it. Please let me know if you have more questions.

Change motor

wow your ambitious

motor and computer and o ya it beter be from a vechiale with the same options and then theres the re code by the dealer for the anti theft

what im getting at so suttly is take it to the local engine builder
explain what you want to get out of the car and how wild you want it to be
a good engine guy can tear down your block do a 5 angle valve job spin the cylinders 60 - 80 thousand over size the pistons turn the crank and set you up for a full allchol motor if you want
depending on what you want it can be cheeper to rebuild and upgrade then change the motor out
hell a top end will cots arround 800-1500 depending who assembles the motor when done
remember if it's a dodge it beter sound mean
