Car isnt running smooth

Do you mean the piston rings? Did you have this problem before the work? What is ref? If piston rings then check compression. Ring gaps need to be staggered.

96 wildcat 700 only has half power like it only runs one cylinder have spark on both

You probably have a bad clutch seal on your crankshaft, or one dirty carburetor, or possibly bad spark plug caps. Clean your carburetors, change your plug caps, and test drive the machine carefully. If it still bogs , buy an after market piston kit with crankshaft seals, gaskets, pistons, and rings. Do a complete rebuild it should only cost about $150 for all the parts in a kit. Then you should be good to go for another 17 years.

I have a 97 polaris indy 500 snowmobile. The spark

Wait, it just wont turn over, like the engine won't rotate?, that is either a broken crank, which not unusual for those 500's or you seized it, (welded the piston to the jugs). if this isn't what you mean, and it will turn over but not on its own power, then either your jets in the carbs are clogged, fuel may get to it, but not through it, or your rings are stuck closed and giving you low compression, check this by pulling it over slowly, you should feel each piston completing the revolution with a prominent glug glug. grab your primary clutch and rotate it back and forth, it should have a bit of play, but if it clanks and has alot of play, your crank is busted

After getiing my puma back?the engine now smokes and there no compression in number 2 piston is my engine dead?

You have this listed under 2001 Ford Focus, but say it's a Puma and also reference the #2 piston. Based on that, I'm going to assume you mean an Arctic Cat Puma snowmobile. If so, Pop the head off (4 nuts) and if it's the gasket, you'll see where it's blown out. Get a new gasket, pop the head back on and tighten it back up. If it's the piston or rings, you'll be able to tell when you pull the head. If the piston has a hole or melted down from a lean condition, you'll see it. If the rings are shot, you may see some scoring on the cylinder wall. You might also be able to tell by the spark plug. Pull it and check for a silvery residue. If the piston burned, it will sometimes leave a silver (aluminum) film on the plug. A whiteish plug means lean which could cause the head gasket or piston problem as well. A dark (brownish, blackish) plug means it was running rich and your piston "should" be ok. Again, best bet would be to pull the head and check everything out.

2001 Toyota Corolla, Burning Oil rapidly

Take your vehicle back to your mechanic, and have him perform a DRY, then a WET compression test. Please provide both readings back to me. In the meantime, ask him what it would cost you to him replace the piston rings. This is your problem. The 2 tests will simply verify me thinking.
