You'll need some specialized tools to do this Pull out the injector and install a compression gauge. Crank to see if there is a normal reading. If not take gauge out and install a fitting that will allow you to put compressed air in the cylinder. Move the crankshaft to top dead center for the cylinder under test. apply air gently. Listen at the air inlet box for air hissing into it. If none ...good . If you hear some the intake valve is leaking. Do the same procedure with the exhaust pipe. Listen for air. If yes then an exhaust valve is leaking. To check for worn rings, put the gauge back in and crank. Observe reading. Take out the gauge, squirt some 30 weight engine oil in the cylinder. Put the compression gauge back in and crank again. If the reading is greater than the first one then the rings are worn.
