TOYOTA TAZZ COMPRESSION PROBLEM
2001 Toyota Tazz • 280,000 miles
I have replaced the carb, spark plugs, leads, fuel filter and adjusted the timing to 10deg. I am out of answers, could you tell me why the car still idles as if its throwing away spark? This only happens at low end idling and revs, at approx 2000rpm it seems smooth.

Yes all good, I've also been asked if it could perhaps be a sticky valve, what is your take on that?
Could be, a compression test would normally pick that up because if the valve was sticking and not closing fully the compression on that cylinder would be down.
Ok compression is 1000, 1000, 600, 800. Does this indicate gasket or rings...no smoke is being burned.
Thank you, will do this asap and give feedback. Thank you for the prompt and accurate advice.
