Engine Performance problem
1992 Honda Civic 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 160000 miles
I had my engine overhauled last year and according to mechanic it was left "new". That mechanic has disappeared from scene (I hope from Earth) and I now find that two of my four cilinders are under compressed, or almost non-functioning. My good little car is thus chugging along pretty faithfully (though when AC is connected it'll stall at idling or even very low speeds) on only two cilinders. My new mechanic (I trust him, yet.) Says it's a valves problem and he'd have to again open up motor, a rather expensive job for an old car. Is there any way of fixing the under compressed cilinders or valves or whatever without too much expense? Anyway. I'll probably sell the car, but I'd rather give it away in a decent condition, as in every other way it's still a beauty, than just take it to the vulture park?
have the same problem?
