1994 Nissan 300zx with low compression in one cylinder what is the recommended repair?
What's is the compression in the cylinders? I'm having the same problem right now in my 90. I'm getting 165 in 5 of the cylinders, and 150 in one. The local Z shop said it was no big deal, and that you can allow up to 14 or so psi difference (especially if the car is 20 years old). If it's more off than that, I would recommend you take it to a mechanic. I know it could be a lot of things, normal wear on cylinder walls, worn piston rings, or a head gasket, etc.
How can i repair a 1996 350 number 4 cylinder misfiring compression in cylinder is 118lbs the rest are about 160lbs?
No, quite the opposite- the idea of gaskets is to ensure that an engine gives HIGH compression. If your car has just had a cylinder head gasket change and you are STILL getting low compression, then this suggests that the problem lies with the cylinder head itself- it may be cracked. Unfortunately there's no effective repair for this, the only solution is to get a new cylinder head I'm afraid.
1997 Chevy Tahoe you took it to a mechanic and was told that the number 6 cylinder is getting no compression and that you need a new engine Can this problem be fixed?
I'm not sure of the exact values; they should be in your Haynes repair manual. However, if you compression test all of the cylinders and find one that is lower you have a compression problem with that cylinder. It is also possible to have 2 that are lower, this would most likely indicate a warp in the head between those two cylinders. Other causes for compression loss are damaged or gunked up valves that do…
The repair depends on what is causing the low compression. Low compression can be caused by a blown head gasket, cracked cylinder head, burnt or damaged valves, worn or cracked piston rings, scored block cylinders. It's kind of hard to imagine that an engine would have low compression on all 6 cylinders unless something major is wrong, or the compression gauge is not measuring properly.
If you 07 Nissan sentra and has manual transmission, you have a big link in your Slave cylinder inside of your transmission and it will burn your clutch and Nissan will charge you $1600.00 Dollars to repair even if fall in powertrain warranty. fyi, is a good car but Nissan sucks even I got video and pictures of this mess Bortiz7623@yahoo.com
I suspect the valve seat in the no. 4 cylinder has dropped and has been hammered by the piston into the head. If the piston is all right you will have to put a used or rebuilt head on it. If the piston or the sides of the cylinder wall are scored you will have to take the engine out of the car and repair the no. 4 piston and will possibly have to have…
What engine???????? You should refer to repair manual if not familiar with auto repair and understand the terminology before attempting Remove nuts holding exhaust manifold to cylinder head & remove nuts/bolts holding exhaust manifold to exhaust pipes Use new exhaust manifold gaskets and install the new manifold securing the manifold to cylinder head (may need to but new nuts and or bolts) by "snugly" tightening manifold to cylinder head if not refering to repair manual
