Hello and welcome, Super mechanic here. Thank you for trusting us with your vehicle concerns, I will do my best to help you with your question.



Do you know what the compression is in the engine?


Customer: replied 4 years ago.

no it ran fine saturday went about 80 miles it has 65000 miles on it

You will want to see if it has compression and the timing is not off. Also, that the fuel is good and not contaminated. The 3 things needed to run are spark, (at the right time) compression and air/fuel mixture.
