Engine Performance problem
1999 Acura Integra 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 72000 miles
I have just recently performed a compression test on the motor, and the reading from cylinders ( left to right ) reads 180/190/195/185 for my GSR integra.
What could lead reading, because I was kind of expecting low 200's on all cylinders.
Hoping I Dont Have A Blown Gasket, Bent Vavles, Burnt Vavles, Damaged Rings, Or Vavletrain Issues.
Is there any way I can inspect these items above?
Iam guessing the vavle cap / crank case is gona have to be remove to inspect the motor.
Also during the compression test, I removed all the spark plugs prior to testing the FIRST cylinder or do I just remove the spark plug to the cylinder I'm testing and leave the 3 remaining in UNTIL THEY'RE TESTED?
THANKS in advance guys-
I will be donating 5-10$ when I can figure out what the heck is causing me this less than SATISFIED number readings, to help keep this great site going; because having a 2nd and 3rd opinion really helps when trying to troubleshoot the problem/issue.
Have A Great Day All! Thanks Again! =]
have the same problem?
