Just seeing if there is any feedback or other opinions. I looked at KillerBs' archived thread. His was a bit higher than mine... in the 120's consistently.<p>Conditions<p>- Engine slightly warmer than room temp, valve cover warm to the touch, but not hot. You can rest your elbow on it while changing the TCV hoses and it won't hurt.<p>- All 5 Plugs out<p>- Fuse inside door jam pulled for Fuel pump #33 I think<p>- WOT during cranking.<p>- Built highest compression on 3rd puff<p>Drivers to Passenger side<p>118 100 110 110 115 <p>The one with the 100 Reading, I poured in a little bit of oil, and compression rose to 110. <p><br>Seems like this is just a bit on the low side. 2004 with 60k miles.

Buddy just suggested that if the engine was actually closer to operating temperautre numbers would be a bit better.<p>I got stuck playing Bejewled blitz on Facebook.<p>DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES PLAY THAT GAME.<p>You'll get sucked into it for an hour.

Re: (chinaonnitrous1)

Engine should be run until thermostat opens before checking compression if possible.<br>Spec is 1.1-1.3 MPa or 160-189psi<br>Yours seems a little low but some of that could be because the operating temp not achieved or not enough revolutions per test. I generally try for 4 compression strokes.<br>Also remember to switch ignition OFF after each cylinder test, otherwise throttle stops communication after 2 minutes and no more WOT during cranking. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

So the engine seems like its building pressure normally.<p>After a few issues, the car runs great. I'll do a better test on the next round.<p>Also, the car was switched off after each test, as I did not want all the accessories running and draining the battery.

Re: Personal Compression Numbers 2004 S60r (chinaonnitrous1)

The numbers you receive with a compression test are not THE real numbers .<br>You can only use them to look for differences between cilinders.<br>wow, you can't compare yours with an other car measured with an other tool and different atmospheric conditions.
