Customer Question

Customer: I have a 2011 volvo xc60 t6 . i'm getting a misfire code for cylinder 6. i bought a new coil due to testing the coil and it being slightly different reading than the others. That didnt fix the problem so i did a compression test and results show low on cylinder 6. i looked at all the plugs and only #6 was discolored . do you have any advice?The vehicle has 78K ***** ***** and the dealers we called say it's not covered

HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Ok, this could be a burnt valve, sticking piston ring or failed valve seal and guide. I need to know what the compression reading was and if you did a wet compression test and what that reading was

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It was a dry test with a reading of 55 cylinder 5 was at 90

HI,

Ok, add 1-2 tablespoons of oil and retake the compression. If it comes up to the others, it is either sticking piston compression ring or broken one. If it stays low, then it is either a burnt valve or worn out valve seal or guide(usually a burnt valve).
