Readings on 2 were( dry test) 90, (wet test) 170. On cyln. 4 ( dry test) 10, (wet test) 160. I know that it over 100 thousand miles, But I am not at the garage right now to give you the correct mileage. This is my partners sister/in/law car. Neither of us have seen any smoking from car before we had it towed to our garage.
Yes we do know that the cyln. walls were dry and the rings are not keeping a seal. you have answered what I have suspected since the first dry compress. test. We have rebuilt engs. for the last 40 years. Lately we have been just changing eng. out. In fact we have one outside that we will bee changing out the eng. we just got it yesterday. Anyway, because I am 78 years old and my partner is 76 years old, I thought perhaps there might be something new that we were missing in these cars of newer years. But as you can see, we still do the old fashion basic testing. It generally never really ever fails us. Thank you again for your time and your answer.
