Re: Engine Compression... HELP
When you say it's a bear to start, can you be a little more specific? Does the starter have a hard time turning over or does it just crank and crank before it fires? When you took the compression test, did you do every cylinder? Just taking a reading on 1 cylinder will not tell you what the other 7 are making. It may have an issue in another cylinder. Does the hard starting issue occur all the time or only when hot? There are other factors we need to know.
