Re: low compression in #2 only showing 89 lbs

you can use a $25 compression guage kit, just take off the gauge, and hook your air compressor to teh hose that screws into teh sparkplug hole, make sure the cylinder your testing is at TDC, and the vavels are closed, and also start at a low air pressure ( abotu 20psi) then slowly increase until you can hear it hissing, mke sure its in Nuetral, and teh wheels are chocked!

I did it on a suzuki once and it was enough pressure to roll teh car forward.
