JohnnysEG stopped by tonight with his new compression tester gadget he got for X-mas. Thanks again man :thumbup:

So, I wanted to check the compression on my 96 Cx that I picked up last week. This way I know if it's worth tuning up for daily driving or pulling the motor and getting a swap. We pulled the ECU fuse, removed all the spark plugs and did the test.....

What all 4 cylinders showed:



Here's a vid (digital camera) of us doing the compression on my Cx. We read how to do it from c-speed's "How To" :p

4.51 mb **right click save as** 4.51mb

So, how'd we do?

My (FastAssH22Accord) bro's 95 F22 Accord....

8.90mb **right click save as** 8.90mb

Did we do the compression test correctly? I find it odd that all 8 cylinders tested showed at least 180. My bro swore the thing was broke after we did his 220K+ motor :crook: One of his cylinders showed 205 :eek: :eek: :eek:

As always thanks for any feedback

As long as you did the following :

- engine was warm
Ice cold :mad

- throttle was wide open
Forgot to do that :mad

- you released the pressure on the guage after reading each cylinder
:clap Got that one :rolleyes

then you should be fine. I got a compression tester for Christmas as well :)
I was going to buy about $175 worth of parts today for a tune-up. Now I've got to retest the compression instead and still hope it's good :aww

the numbers are supposed to increase if you hold the gas pedal down this time around correct?
