Default Re: Cylinder 3 misfire & Fuel in Oil

Before I go into a long saga about the "head hunt", are you planning on pulling one yourself in a JY, or getting a used one from "off the shelf" by an online seller or such? Do you already have an aluminum valve cover, or is it still the OEM plastic one?

If you are going to be pulling a head in a JY, that leak-down hose/adapter might be quite handy there, too. I will explain, depending on your answers to the above. Don't get too fussy about the compression re-tests, we are just looking to see if that one cylinder remains at "zero" or close to it. But if it is still low, then re-check one of the other cylinders too, to be sure the gauge is still working OK!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
