Squirt oil in your cylinders and recheck the compression. If your compression goes up you have bad rings. Check your valve tolerances to make sure that the valves are not being held open only because they are adjusted too tight. This would cause compression loss. If the valves were bent because the timing belts slipped or broke You may have to replace the valves to get compression back up. If the engine has low compression because there are 300,000 miles on the bike you may just need a complete overhaul or a new motorcycle. If you had at least 110 compression on all cylinders and they were all with in 10 pounds of each other you could still be riding on low octane fuel.

If you are putting air in the cyllinder, it can go out the valves. The only way to check compression is with compression tester.

Loss of compression in #5 cylinder on my 1990 nissan maxima

I would first be sure that you have spark to that cyllinder. Pull the wire off and stick an extra spark plug in the wire. Lay it on the engine block somewhere and atart the car to see if it's sparking. If it is, you have a valve or cam problem. If it isn't check the plug, the wire, distributer, coil pack etc.

Chainsaw do not start

have you checked the spark to see if you are getting spark and then check the compression it needs to be 110 psi min, to do thisyou have to have a compression tester you can get one at any auto parts store (step one remove the spark plug screw in the compression tester with the right fitting then pull the starter rope 5 times and the compression should be 110 psi if it does not read a min of 110 psi the engine will need to be rebuilt and it is not worth doing it will cost 300-400$ to rebuild the motor... email if you have any problems

What do you set the torque at on the head of a 1997 jeep cherokee grand laredo?

I'll try to make this simple.
Draw a rectangle and then draw seven bolt holes on each edge.
number the top (will be right side of engine) this way> 12,8,4,1,5,9,13.
Second row starting under #12 is:11,7,3,2,6,10,14.
Bolts are torqued in a spiral in order, 1 through 14 at 22 foot pounds, again at 45, again at same, again at 110 but #11 goes to 100, not 110 (this bolt also gets sealant on threads to prevent seepage) then continue with remainder in order at 110 pounds.

1992 Geo Storm having problems.

you may have turned too many rmps and warped a piston which would cause the piston to actualy hit your valve, or while turning too many rpms you may have caused the valve to "float" which would mess it up
