So I bought a parts car yesterday for $340.00. It ran for a bit so I know it runs.
I pull the main fuse, pull all the spark plugs, thread in the tester, push the peddle all the way down and turn the car over. The result....cranking but absolutely no compression to the #1 cylinder. I mean none. I do however get a gas smell.
I would just worry that the #1 cylinder is totaly shot but I just did the same exact commression test to my other E-30 right before this. I'm a bit lost as to why the first car has a gas smell and the second didn't at all. And why there would be no commpression to the cylinder.
I even had my daughter look and make sure the belt wasn't just slipping on the pully.
Thanks in advance.
