Misfire and low compression on Cylinder #4....Info..?
How are things lads...?
One of the lads bought an altezza recently and tbh she wasn't running right at all, well I didn't think she was...there was always a slight misfire...
Anyways he said he brought it out to some Toyota mechanic the last day and that Cylinder #4 is down on compression (70, I think...I'll double check this)...
All other cylinders are 100% and are in very good condition and great compression so he says...?
Anyways he's been quoted at 1500+ to get it sorted out and he's not sure what to do, and if the mechanics trying to pull a quick one...?
I think its funny because its easily the fastest tezza iv ever been in :p lol
Its clean as well so I'd hope he keep it, if not I'd almost purchase it...
Anyways his question is how does he go about checking what's causing the low compression... I was thing a wet compression test...?
I'm not a mechanic so I said I'd ask on this..
