Hi all, just ran a compression test on my 1998 N/A V70, wondering what you guys think of the numbers.
Cyl 1: 160 dry, 205 wet
Cyl 2: 190 dry, 180 wet
Cyl 3: 180 dry, 170 wet
Cyl 4: 180 dry, 180 wet
Cyl 5, 160 dry, 160 wet
Not certain as to the accuracy of these, I used a crappy rental gauge. The PCV is solid, and the car doesn't use any oil (changed it two months ago, haven't lost any). It lacks power sometimes, and sometimes has an occasional episode of misfires, but the front O2 sensor is out, and the car is running a little lean. If the numbers are accurate, I would guess that cylinder 1 is having some issues?
Thanks!

Probably nothing to worry about. How did the plugs look when you took them out? How's the condition of the cap/rotor/plug wires? I would fix that stuff and the oxygen sensor before worrying about compression.
