tighten the bolts. I haven't looked at install instructs for Rangers, but most header instructions say to retorque the bolts after x number of miles.

he has a bad head gasket. Brian man, you need to get your facts straight before you post. Otherwise you will get bad information. The only thing people have to go on is what you tell them. You have a bad head gasket thats what caused your poor compression.

Its cool man. Its really not a big deal. Just know that no one knows what the mechanic said to you. So its important that you have the proper information otherwise no one can help you the right way.
