U should have at least 160-165, what u do is find the highest reading cylinder, no cylinder should be more than 5% different than the hightest reading or u will have a rough idle

I have a 1999 oldsmobile intrigue that keeps fouling the number 4 plug. Someone said to check the compression on the number 4 hardened valve stem seals. What should compression be?


I believe 140 is minimum. New is 200+. It also needs to be within 15% of the ones beside it. If it fouls out soon, most likely the rings on the piston are bad. They do make anti foulers for spark plugs.

I have a 1999 ford escort 2.0 DOHC and it will crank but wont start...it had a new fuel pump put in it and ive put a cam position sensor on it and a battery..its gettin fire and its blue spark but still no...


Compression is too low, it sounds like there is a head gasket failure. The compression should be above 100 psi as a minimum. Normally should be in the 120-170psi range.

1999 nissan altima, overheated and no leaks after fluid replinished, but car will start and then shut off after a few minutes.


check to see if your engine oil and antifreeze are mixing.if overheated you burned ur head gasket car will not turn on because it loosing engine compression. to check this you need to do compression test..ur engine will seize if you keep starting it.and letting it keep shutting off.keep damage to a minimum internally

My 1999 turbo diesel escort has got a fuel prob iv changed the fuel filter,and it still juders,trys to stoll and blue smoke comes from the exhaust iv also added a injector cleaner to the fuel. please help


Sounds like the turbo seal is leaking just from the symptoms but the blue smoke can also be valve guides or valve seats. It can also be the piston rings that have seized to the piston body.

It is time to save yourself a $75.00 shop charge and buy a compression tester. (make sure you have the Diesel compression test adapter also) Then check the compression on all cylinders. If the compression is good then your looking at either turbo or cylinder head repairs. The blue smoke is telling you it is time to do something as it will be sitting on the sidelines come the next SMOG test.

1999 saab 9-5


Depending on the overall condition of the engine, it could have worn or frozen rings, worn valve guides or the turbo you installed is worn out. These are driven by exhaust pressure and if their bearings are worn, you may be getting a mix of compressed air from the turbo and oil that is seeping past the compressor's internal seals.

Wut number range shood i hav for agood compression test on the cylinders of my 1999 s10 4.3 liter v6?


Normal compression will be between 185 to 205.
Minimum compression is 180
Lowest compression reading should not be less than 70 percent of your highest compression reading. None of the compression readings should be less than 100 psi.

Whats the make-up of the r?otating assembly


It all depends on how much pressure you intend to run the turbo or supercharger at. If you won't exceed around 12 psi, you can keep the engine stock without damaging or shortening the engine life too much. If you wanna go bigger than that, you might need to upgrade the pistons and crank. And as for compression, either a charger or turbo will do the same thing as far as the compression is concerned, so if compression is too high for a turbo, it's too high for a charger also. And I'd start checking more for upgrading the fuel system than the engine assembly parts, cause you will need more fuel in the engine to compensate for more air coming in due to turbo or charger way before you need to strengthen the engine for the extra power.

I have a 1999 saab 9-5 model and i have 195.000 miles on it i went with the 0 weight 30 mobil one synthetic motor oil on my oil change ran it 3,000 miles and just as i was about to change the oil again it...


Sounds like it's time for a compression check. The head or gasket could be blown, and this test will confirm or deny this fact. Your smoke/steam and the oily residue are pretty good clues...accordianman
