Hmac300. Thank you for your insight! I'm still unsure of your response. A miss-fire as opposed to losing compression. A miss-fire; refers to spark, and the explosion of fuel vapor contained in the cylinder, driving the piston back downward. Yes? Lost compression; refers to a seal or ring at the top or bottom of the cylinder which has become worn or damaged, allowing some of the exploding fuel vapor to escape, therefore robbing the downward thrust of the piston of some of it's momentum. Correct? How would a skilled mechanic repair each of the two scenarios. Thank you again for your time!
