What causes low compression?
Asked in Auto Parts and Repairs
What can you do when compression is low?
It depends on why the compression is low. Assuming you checked compression with a gauge causes could include a stuck valve or valves, blown head gasket, cracked head or bad rings and seals. Repair requirements in order are a valve job, a new head gasket installation, a new or rebuilt head, a new or rebuilt engine.

What causes low resolution?
Low resolution is usually caused by a poor compression rather than poor capture. Low resolution images have less physical pixels than a high resolution one. The stretching of the image is what causes them to look poor. This low number of pixels is usually the result of downsampling of the the image for email or file size purposes.

How do you fix an engine with low compression in all 6 cylinders?
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.

How do you fix a cylinder with low compression on an outboard?
This all depends on why it has low compression. If the rings are worn out, the motor should be rebuilt. If one of the valves is bad, re grinding it or replacing them is the fix. Perform a cylinder leakage test to confirm it. You will probably need to take it to a shop for this, but unfortunately, there usually are no quick fixes for low compression.
