Zero compression on cyl 3 duratec 2.3
Bought a truck site unseen with what was told to me a bad engine. I had to take care of a sensor issue to get it to run like it should. Well It ran real rough and I knew it was missing. Pulled the plugs and all were good except 3. It was covered in oil. Found my miss. Did compression test on and 1,2,4 all good and 3 was ZERO. I hooked a air line to the compression gauge and tried to fill the chamber. I could tell the air was coming out the exhaust only. I rotated the engine a few times and still came out of the exhaust. So I either have a stuck open exhaust valve or its bent.
Is there a way I can take the valve cover off and tell if its stuck open easily?
This truck has sat up for over 2 years so I am hoping for a miracle on the stuck valve.
I started this post as the other I had opened had already been answered and I did not want to have it bogged down.
