Question about 2003 BMW R 1100 S BoxerCup Replica

1 Answer

Compression I took apart the top end to replace the old gaskets. When I put it back together I messed up and didn't get the timing right. I only realized this after trying to start it for 15 minutes and then going back to the manual. I went back and fixed the timing, now it turns over and the plugs are firing, but there is just no compression. I'm guessing that I've "fubar'd" the valves, but that's just a guess.

Make sure you got the valve timing right Wink And then make sure you didn't slam a valve into the piston when you tried to crank it over before…

First of all my mate bought a vauxhall corsa duel fuel he drove it from heathrow to where i live about 150 miles he said that it wasnt pulling good did compression test and number 2 and 3 had no...


It might be a silly question on my part but here goes.


Did you put a new gasket between the head and block. Only reason you would have water in the block is if the block was cracked or the head gasket was defective.

I have a 99 ktm 250 sx. Had to get cylinder replated and a new piston. I put the bike back together and oil was leaking from the front lower end of the cylinder and i wont idle. Took the bike back ap


If there is a leak in the head gasket it will never run properly. Maybe the carburetor is plugged if it has sat for a while. The gas/oil mixture can go bad over time. The leak could be from a loose gas line. Or possibly even oil dripping from the oil filter if you just cleaned and re-oiled it.

Do i need to have my 2004 dodge intrepid anti theft code reset through a dealership if the heads and head gaskets were replaced? the entire top of the engine ws taken apart adn put abcl together.


i would disconnect the battery. removing both the positive and negative battery terminals. with both ends disconnected, hold the two terminals together for about 10 seconds. this will proform a hard reset on most chrysler vehicles. also, if this doesnt work, try turning the key to the on position, and then proforming the hard reset procedure.

No compression on cylinder #2 after putting a new (remanufactured) cylinder head and pistons/rings


You did not mention about replacing a piston you said was broken? if you did not there is the cause of you low compression. either way if you did change it out and did not measure the ring end gap and put the right size ring in the hole then it looses compression, if you failed to resurface the cylinder and just put in a set of rings then they wont seat for a while. In addition. length of push rod? was cam follower collapsed? did you change? How about the connecting rod of the piston? the one that was in there more than likely got squashed and isn't coming up to full compression Sounds to me like you need to take the head off again and check out a few more things Sorry!
