How exactly do you do a compression check?
I think I need to do that. 142,000 MizILES!!
I have the tool for it, just dont know what exactly to do.

  1. First, find your fuel pump fuse, so you don't fill your oil with gas. Then start it and relieve the fuel pressure.
  2. Then remove all your spark plugs.
  3. then put the compression fitting into the spark plug hole, just like you would putting a spark plug back in, be carful not to stip the hole.
  4. Hop in the car and crank it over a few times, get out and record your PSI.
  5. Do this for cyl. 1-4
  6. Reverse the procedure to get your car running again.

any thing over 179 is most definitely crazy carbon build up an the pistons/valves which increases compression unless you've got 11:5:1 pistons:)

those #'s are for 91-93 I don't know if they're different for later years but I doubt it.
