bent valve, burnt valve, stuck valve, broken piston ring, cracked piston, cracked head, blown head gasket.
On one or all cylinders? a single cylinder compression loss may be a stuck or bent valve, or even bad piston rings. Engine wide would have to be some kind of massive valve train failure.
If it always goes back to normal later, I'd suspect fuel filter first. But other problems are possible.
Low fuel pressure
it must be burning oil ? and have a gas leak? as to why it would lose equal compression i am unshure have a professional look at it
Most engines lose compression over time, but each cylinder should have roughly equal compression. Even if compression numbers are not equal, however, it's usually not worth the expense to fix this.
A person would choose to wear compression tights in order to try to lose weight or to appear slimmer. They may wear them for self confidence because they'll feel slimmer.
Moisture or coolant has contaminated the oil. Drain and replace the oil/filter and run a compression test. You may have a blown head gasket.
The cylinder would lose compression, causing the engine to lose power. I've personally never heard of a cylinder breaking, its usually parts near and around the cylinder that break, although if the block cracks, I guess that could be considered breaking the cylinder. The cylinder can also lose compression due to rust holes which can develop over time.
Verification on your question: Do head gaskets make cars lose pressure....hmmmmm, I think what your asking is.... Does a head gasket make an engine lose compression. - Correct?The simple answer is yes, it does, but it is by design. The amount the head gasket lowers the compression (or pressure) is built into the overall design of the engine. For instance, if you were to assemble the head to the block, without a gasket, you would raise the compression (pressure) slightly and potentially cause damage to the engine. This would most likely become apparent when you burn out a valve or burn a hole in the top of a piston.In general terms: - The greater the compression ratio, the bigger the explosion in the bore and the more heat that is produced.
a vac leak
The alternator would be your best bet. Go get it tested.
Is your check engine light on?
The ignition module that is in the distributor is probley bad.
alternator could have gone out running the battery dead.
They are just like every other dog. They do not lose hair they simply shed.
It will be easier wearing a compression sleeve when one runs to lose weight because it provides a lot of things such as protection, anti-swelling, dirt protection, and warmth.
Normally you will not lose any height when you lose weight. There is even a chance that as there is less compression on the spine and joints that there might be a bit of height gain.
Valve, valve spring, piston, piston ring, cylinder wall, head, headgasket, diluted oil, stuck injector,
check compression in cyclinders or catalytic converter may be stopped up.
You start to lose compression and coolant is in your oil
If your car have very little or no compression it can cause you to lose horsepower.
Head gasket failure, timing belt slipped a notch, turbo shot, loss of compression.
engine misfire. i have a '96 Chevy blazer but i don't have that problem, i was reading reviews on the car and found out that some of them do that.
