After Searching for a vehicle online 15 hrs a day, everyday, We Finially caught one before it sold to. I am a Care Giver and the Man I care for JUST Bought me this 99 Gmc Jimmy so I can get him to his Doctor Appointments 2x a week. PROBLEM: #1 SPARK PLUG MISFIRE, ALL KINDS OF ENGINE NOISES Especially After starting until shutting off. Exhaust fumes, gas fumes, Rough. Etc. Etc. I ran a Compression test in the #1 cylinder. NOTHING! I ran it in the #3 and it read close to 70. He paid Alot for this vehicle and Im affraid we wont be able to sell it. I am almost positive it iS RESULTS OF A WORN OUT ENGINE maybe, and Needs a Major Valve Job Right? MY QUESTION IS : Before I just JUNK IT, and it not be at that Valve Job and new engine head job stage Yet, What kind of tests can I do and on what that might also be the problem before that Big Problem? If that makes any sence, PLEASE Help Me. I dont even want to go Car hunting again
