Hey just wanted some help interpreting the compression test results i just got.
car is a 2003 kia optima with 2.4 engine.
I performed the test the same as ye old compression test video from a million years ago. I never did it before, here are the results.
Cylinder 2 when i pulled the spark plugs out, was covered in oil. Inspecting down it looked like there was oil in the cylinder. I am not sure if that oil was pooled in the spark plug hole and fell in, or the other way around. What cuases oil in the cylinder like that? I have had a mystery oil leak for years now. I did the valve cover gaskets years ago and it had saturdated the end of the spark plug, so i think it was inside the motor.
Cylinder 3 squeaked on the dry test
Would it be higher if i put more oil in, or accidently cranked too many times? like with the 280 on cyl 2?
A picture of the spark plugs is attached.
