Hello,

Was wondering if its possible to compression test a 3sge engine when its out of a car, buying a second hand engine and I knows its oil pressure is good..3/4 just want to check its compression also any other tips to buying second hand..? It has 160000kms on the clock. Also what should I be looking at compression wise..?

Thanks

It is possible but id make a jig to mount the engine to sit upright propely. Then get a fully charged battery and test it. Nothing to it really. Remove any fuel flow anf disable ignition.
