not long If you are saying that you only have 50 psi compression on two of the cylinders, then you need to find out why those two cylinders are that low on compression. You may have burnt valves, broken rings, or a blown head gasket. A blown head gasket is very serious and should be repaired ASAP. Stop driving the car until you find out why the compression is low.

How does one know what to price a car at?

It completely depends on the mileage, age of the vehicle, how many doors the vehicle has, engine size and also the condition of the vehicle. If you have a vehicle which is not in good condition, has a lot of mileage and is a vehicle registered in 1997, you would expect not to get a lot for it. However, if your vehicle is fairly new and has a low mileage, then you would price it at a higher offer.

If it's an EFI engine you won't have the carb to worry about, but would instead have to have the engine control remapped.
