I compression tested all my cylinders one read low. I was hoping bad gasket.
the engine cranks right up and runs good but there is a blew smoke.
I'm thinking bad rings. I'll have to pull the head for sure.
Is it possible to drop the pan and rering on cylinder like we used to with slat six and others, Or do you have to pull the block?
thank

What's wrong with your keyboard???

You should be able to re-ring a cylinder as you described. Hope for a bad valve. Did you squirt oil in the cylinder to see if the compression comes up?
Yes I did put oil in the cylinder to check the compression.
After it burned the engine quit smoking :lol: .
Any way I'm back to a valve job soon as my TORX get here.
My keyboard is wireless and sometimes errors and I miss it.
Sorry .
Thanks for the reply.ziton

uhh

i think he mean with a compression tester

-disable the fuel and ignition system
-place in tester
-hold car at wot and crank for a few seconds
-do it for all 4 cylinders
-then go back to the first one and put oil into it and repeate the same steps. compression should up a bit
-if compression is low without oil and normal with oil your rings are gone in that cylinder
