Engine Performance problem
2000 Jeep Wrangler 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 185000 miles
I just rebuilt the engine for my Wrangler. All pistons, rings, lifters, push rods, rockers are new. I didn;t see any problems with the valve train so it was left alone. New gaskets were installed throughout. The problem is its hard to start and when it does start it idles rough, and there is a significant loss of power. Cylinder compression was checked and the number 4 cylinder shows a loss of about 8-10 PSI from the other cylinders (all of which are almost perfect). What could be the problem? Could that minimal compression loss be the culprit?
have the same problem?
