Question about Nissan Altima
Might be a bad cylinder head gasket at this cylinder. A radiator compression test can find the problem. Might be a bad valve, or a frozen (stuck) piston ring, or broken piston ring. To isolate the problem to the valves or rings, you have to add a little 30 weight oil inside cylinder through spark plug hole. Repeat the compression test. The oil temporarily seals the piston rings. IF the compression is still low then you have a bad valve. Good luck.
