Engine Mechanical problem
1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 135000 miles
Comming back from the grocerie store the other day I saw that I was fogging the neighborhood with thick white smoke. This is a 91 olds calais w/2.3 quad 4. I took the coil cover off and the sp/plugs, did a compression test.I don't know the firing order so I'll call the cylinder closest to the timming chain cyl#1. Cyl# 2, 3, 4 averaged about 190 p.S.I. Cyl#1 had no compression at all and blew oil all the way up to the hood.I'm thinking a dropped valve? I dont Know, I want to keep the car it's my depenable old work sled. Ive always taken good care old lady
have the same problem?
