Question about Honda Cars & Trucks
Removed carbon buildup from combustion chamber and top of piston area,new head gasket.
You don't replace just the top ring, you do them all
If the cylinders are not bored, it could be no ring replacement
You need to ask that at an engine machine shop, in person
If your doing your own work & did a head gasket & not heads
& valves, your doing a lot of work & not fixing much when
you had the chance
You ask a question no one can answer
You don't say it has 150,000 miles & is worn out
If that is the case, you also bore the motor & do a complete
rebuild & have the shop do all the work but install the short
bock & then you do the head install & the rest

SOURCE: no compression in one cylinder
Timing belt slipped around cam pulley. Take off your timing belt cover and check the position. This would explain misfiring and compression loss. Stretched belt or missing cogs in belt likely culprit.

That carbon build up is bad!Carbon is what a diamond is made from and pieces of it breaking off will decrease the life of your engine.Also the carbon will heat up and cause premature detonation in the combustion chamber.Just wait till he leaves the garage and clean it off before reassembly.

Testimonial: "now i am confussed, the first answer i got said do not clean the carbon"
SOURCE: Oil coming from head gasket
You replaced the gasket, did you have the head checked? It might have a bow or warp in it. Might need to be shaved. This IS something you do when you pull the head. You will need to pull it again( yes, replace the gasket again) and have it checked. This will probably be the problem. 9 times out of 10, that's it( been doing this too many years). Pay and have it checked. hope this helps, and sorry to make you spend money like this
