Engine Mechanical problem
1996 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 217400 miles
Car sat for 6 years. Checked filter system, oil and other fluids good, removed spark plugs and poured a capfull of oil in to each cylinder, cranked over, poured in oil again and cranked over, re installed spark plugs, pulled gas fill hose and sucked fuel from fuel tank, added 5 gal. Of 93 octane, installed battery. Using carb cleaner I sprayed small amounts at a time into the breather hose past the air filter 10x and the engine began to run on its own. Warmed engine to full operating temp then reved engine a few times. Drove the care 10 miles and had no issues. Drove the car today 50 miles with no issues. Cranked engine at least 20x today. Engine cooled for 3 hours. Proceeded to crank the engine and found ZERO compression on ALL cylinders. Looked inside of valve cover to find the valve train operating normal, all pulleys turning normal. What happened? TY!
