That was an awesome and, unfortunately not exactly what I wanted to hear. I am a girl and although pretty mechanically book smart, do not really understand the workings of internal workings parts. Had come to possible diagnosis of valve sitting and renting a compression tester. So if have compression failure in that cylinder; you go with diagnosis of the spring? This noise started coming up let pretty steep hill on highway around sixty five mph.
Also, if it gets down to head removal and piston replacement or rods; would you even recommend it on a vehicle of this age and mileage? Wish you were my mechanic. Thank you for your advise. Tells me I am looking in the right area. Also, I have a lot of oil on engine and under body noises that I notice when rolling along slowly or upon putting clutch in gear. Thanks HMAC300
