In completing a dry compression test my results were as follows:
1 - 140
2 - 10?
3 - 100
4 - 170
I repeated the test twice cranking the car for 5 seconds on each cylinder.
The car runs fine but does burn a lot of oil which is not noticeable in the exhaust, but is noticeable in the fact I have to put in about 2 quarts every 2.5 weeks.
1) Could this car run apparently normally, with an occasional rough idle, while seemingly having no compression on cylinder #2?
2) On a related note, if I wanted to do a leak test, how would I manually turn the cylinders to top dead center for each leak test?
