I did a headgasket replacement about a year ago on this car. Everything else runs fine no overheating, and at speeds over 10mph the car runs fine. The only problem is the idling. Took your advice and checked vaccum lines and intake manifold no leaks. The only thing I have been able to find is low compression reading on #1 cylinder of about 70 to 90 while other cylinders are around 120. My question is.I know their could be several factors causing this. Piston rings, valves etc. How do you narrow it down, can the push rods in this vehicle cause this problem?Is it also possible the head gasket is leaking air?Your opinon will greatly be appreciated.
have the same problem?
