    Yesterday, my engine lost 2 cylinders,I measured the compression test for each cylinder.
    The guage showns

    cylinder 1 (clost to the gearbox) : 175 psi
    cylinder 2 : 100 psi
    cylinder 3 : 0 psi
    cylinder 4 :165 psi

    And I saw oil smoke went up in the oil measure stick pipe

    What happened ?
    Gasket or piston oil seal ring or anything else ?


    Thank you very much

    The absence of compression is not just failure of gasket or piston rings. I suspect it is more than that. I hope TS could find out the root of the prob.

    I know a case last time that the compression test showed very low compression.....and it was due to a serious case of piston rings "makan".
