WHAT!?!?!?:shock:stupafly22 said:Ok, got them out...took some muscle and a little blood... Umm, ok this is how I did it.
1. Removed Fuse for Fuel Pump
2. Removed Spark Plug #1
3. Attached Compression Tester with All Other Spark Plugs In - is this correct?
4. Turned Engine Over for 5 Seconds, Then for 3 seconds and Repeted the 3 Seconds 4 times.
5. Removed Spark Plug #2 and With Spark Plug #1 Still Out Repeted Step 4.
NOW IS RUNNING THE TEST ON EACH INDIVIDUAL CYL GOING TO BE AFFECTED BY THE OTHER CYLINDERS PLUGS BEING IN OR OUT? I WAS CONFUSED ON THIS PART WHEN READING THE HOW TO?
6. Continued with the Last Two - leaving the previous plugs out each time so by the time I got to plug #4, no other plugs were in their cylinders....
My readings ranged from 185-215 on the compression tester and the car was driven for over an hour just an hour previous to that so it hadn't cooled much. I belive weather or not the motor is warm affects the readings; correct me if im wrong.
well yeah they got the same readings, youre just doing a bunch of extra cranking. as soon as you get to a certain psi, you cant pass that. that is the cylinders max psi. im just sayin you dont need to crank it for 5 seconds, then 3 seconds, 4 times. thats just making your engine crank unnecessarily, its not really needed ya know? do it how you want, im not telling you that way is wrong, ijust do it differently...easier for me.stupafly22 said:The post in the 5th Gen How To someone stated that they got the same readings doing it the way i did and the way you stated...give it a looksee..
