Hmmm its not oil, and its not torque power.

its what you measure by putting a machine on the where the spark plugs go, and measure the preasure of the engine...?????

So it's compression, then. But dunno what the value should be.. More important, than the exact value (if > 6 or so) ,is that all the cylinders show the same.

The exact value is dependant on the instrument and calibration. Differences between cylinders is the thing that counts.

If your using a convential compression tester then you would expect a reading between 125 and 150 on the gauge on each cylinder

At least that what most modern engines run at if one is considerably lower than the others then i think you got a problem or if there all roughly the same then all should be well :rolleyes: :D
