PLYMOUTH NEON ENGINE PROBLEM

2001 Plymouth Neon • 20,260 miles

How do you read a compression test. And what is a normal reading in this vehicle? I am trying to replace another engine. The engine I am interested in has a cylinder compression of 150/180, 170/180 something to that effect. Good, Bad?

Thanks, Johnnie

Those readings are okay. 150 is about normal. Mostly you want all four cylinders to be about the same. Why are you replacing the engine?
