Re: stock compression

That is really bad! Is it even running? How much power does it have? Did you warm it up before you checked it? When you checked it did you hold the throttle to the floor? The stock compression is 199psi and the minimum is 170psi. Mine is at 150psi and it was running okay but for some reason it's running like crap now.

Re: stock compression

What 4x4_Austin_Mini said. Proper procedure for compression testing is all plugs out, throttle at wide open
so there is no impediment to spinning the motor. check you valve lash, it could be too tight.

If that doesn't improve things squirt a few pumps of motor oil in each cyl and see if it comes up.
If it does, its loseing it at the rings. If it doesnt then its at the valves.

Re: stock compression

First, allow your Zuk to idle until it's at normal operating temp. Prop the throttle wide open, disconnect your ignition system and remove the plugs (all). Then connect comp. guage to one cyl and test with starter. Repeat with the other 3 cyl. I would guess that your readings will be more desireable!!
