You were actually at a Hyundai service department, and they could not tell you how much to fix it? I have a Hyundai and it has a 5/50,000 bumper to bumper and a 10/100,000 power train warranty.
I would ask the dealer to run the VIN and see if this is under warranty.

What is a cylinder compression how much do it cost to replace it

If you have low (or no) compression in one or more cylinders, it can be due to broken/bent valves or valve seats, bad or broken piston rings, or mechanical timing way off. The cost to correct is very dependent on the specific cause. Best case is mechanical timing is way off (this will show up as low/no compression in all cylinders), assuming no other mechanical damage was done. Worst case is engine rebuild or replacement.

Low overall compression in 1996 honda accord 4cyl 129.75 psi avg.

the compression pressures are on the low side. The indications are worn rings as the pressure readings come up when the ring seal is improved with the addition of oil. The bores will be worn in a taper and if the head was to come of there would be a noticeable lip where the top ring stops in the cylinder
rings and cylinders wear equally but rings suffer from a loss of tension, and an increased ring gap that allows more compression to escape to the sump
Do you need to do something about it--
if there is an oil consumption problem( smokey) then yes
If the economy is acceptable to you then --no --not immediately
What should you consider in making a decision----
1. good engines are available from japanese spares ( imported engines with less than 30.000klms on the engine for a fair price
2. consider what is termed a "short motor" which is the block,crank, pistons ,rings,oil pump and sump all new
What you should not consider is a quickie fix--set of rings and nothing else as this will cost you more in the long run.

I was driving my 1989 honda civic lx. when the oil light flashed couple times.then the car died when i try to crank it sounds like a dead cylinder or jumped time.i checked timing and its good. the second...

I don't want to cause you any worries but here's what I think happened.
When any light flashes on your dash, it means you have a big problem. Did you run your car without checking the oil ? It may have run out of oil. If that is the case , the cylinder , pistons, and rings have been shot.
The second cylinder busted an oil ring. Which means you may have to have the engine overhauled. Or you can also buy a used or new engine. Any way you look at it it's going to cost a good penny to fix it.

Check the compression on all cylinders. I'm betting they have little or no compression. Especially the second cylinder.

2002 accord miss firing cylinder # 2 100,000.00 miles

Well its unusual for dirty gas to only affect one injector.
Have you checked spark and compression on that cylinder ?

I think i have 2 cylinders misfiring and also need head gasket replaced, I getting the head gasket fixed but I'm worried about the cylinders will it cause this to happen again and how much does a cylinder...

cylinder replacement ????? this could refer to the cylinder liners, but you would only do this for a diesel engine if at long as the cylinder head is serviced (machined and pressure tested), and all top engine seals are replaced with new ones, you should not have any further issues.......make sure a compressioin test both wet and dry are carried out to ensure that the head is the only problem

1997 honda accord vtek 2,2 I have engine compression in one of 125 and nothing in the other 3 any suggestion

Did the timing belt break? Or did it over heat? ethere way you will need to do a valve job on the cylinder head, but before you do that, do a wet cylinder compression test, shoot some oil in the cylinder's then do a compression test, if compression goes way up, then you have bad piston rings and the engine will have to be overhaul or replace.

Timing belt belt broke honda accord 93. First we cant get the bottom pulleys nut off and how do u knw if i hurt my engine?

You are either going to have to use an air impact wrench, or firgure out a way to keep the crankshaft from turning. When you say you can't get the nut off I'm assuming it's because you can't keep the crank from turning. Maybe wrap a nylon strap around the pulley and figure out a way to anchor the strap or use a block of wood make a wedge. To tell if you hurt the engine you are going to have to put a timing belt on the engine, then get a compression gauge and check the compression. If you have close to the same amount of compression in each cylinder I would think the engine is OK. You should have about 160 PSI of compression on that car, I would think, and not more than 25 PSI variation from one cylinder to the next.

Cylinder #1 not working, I have spark and fule but no compression

If you have screwed in a compression tester and the cylinder is not producing any psi the next step is to determine if it is a faulty valve or the piston rings. remove the plug from the bad cylinder squirt three or four squirts from an oil can into the spark plug hole check compression before and after oil is introduced into the combustion chamber if the compression reading goes up 30 -50 psi your rings are bad if there is no change one of the valves is burn out and you need valve job

Honda Accord one cylinder not firing

The cylinder is not getting fuel, spark or compression. You have already checked for spark on that cable and it appears to be good. Pull the spark plug and see if it is damaged. You can also switch spark plug and cable to another cylinder and see if the miss travels with the plug and or cable. If so, you'll know its the spark plug/cable that is bad.

You can check for fuel by listening to the fuel injector to see if it clicks. Use an automotive stethoscope or a long screwdriver--put the metal end of the screwdriver on the injector and the other end against your ear and listen to the injector while the engine is cranking or running. You should hear it click for each time it pulses fuel.

If both fuel and spark are good, then you are probably missing compression in that cylinder. You (or a mechanic) will need to pull all the spark plugs and do a engine compression test with a compression test/gage set. Lots of things can lead to poor or zero compression including: broken piston rings, burned/stuck/broken valves, cracked cylinder head or engine block, cracked pistons,etc.

Because one cylinder is "dead", the engine has to work extra hard to start and run against a cylinder that is dragging it down. If you find low/no compression in that cylinder, you will probably have to remove the cylinder head to correct it. A big expensive job. It may be cost effective to replace the whole engine with a rebuilt one.

Running on 5 cylinders and needs new coil

If the cylinder is not working because of spark a coil may solve the problem. If the cylinder is not working because of compression, it may be a bad valve intake or exhaust bad piston rings etc. A guide to go by is when you check the compression with a compression guage. The difference shouldn't be more than 10 psi between each. Good Luck
