#6 Cylinder 0 compression

Recommended Posts

Hi All

Maybe someone out there can help... I've owned my SC300 since Jan. of this year with only 120k mile on it.  I've been working on it mostly interior/door panels and driving seldom. Last week went to start and it barely wanted to idle so brought it into my mechanic.  He found # 6 cylinder to have 0 compression while all others 140-150??  The plugs were original which I would have never expected as it never really misfired on me but drove it maybe 100 miles.  Not sure if I should have him do a valve job or sell it as is?  Valve job would run $2500 minimum now with prices(I'm in S.California) Anyone who can shed light on this please do

Hello, Dave. Here is my advice:

1. Find out how much the car is worth if is running perfectly.

2. If the total repair cost is 50% or more of its value, then sell the car as-is.

3. If your car is worth more than $5000, then get it fixed.

We have a problem with our temporary internet router wireless network. We upgraded to Windows 8, but then the stopped working. We tried all the suggestions below, but it didn't work. Then we realized that it is because of the Broadcom 802.11n network adapter driver program that comes with Windows 8.1.

To reduce fading of interior upholstery, Jupiter window tinting window tinting is applied to the inside of a vehicle's windows. This covering material reflects and absorbs infrared and ultraviolet light. It helps keep the interior cooler by reducing the load on a vehicle's AC system.
