Having problems with your 2000 Honda CR-V ?
My no2 and no4 cylinders have little or no compression, how can I fix this problem?
Little or no compression can be a variety of things. I would first check the spark plugs, make sure they are completely tightened, wouldn't hurt to put your finger down there and feel for air when the engine is running. Next are the fuel injectors, put your finger across them and feel for air flow, if you do feel air pumping, then some o-rings need replaced on the injectors, or you need new injectors. If not, you might have stuck valve.. put a paper towel on the tailpipe with the engine running and see if it gets sucked in, if it does, you have a stuck/bad valve in your cylinder head, which is fixable. Lastly, and the worst part, is that your piston rings are shot and is creating your problem. I basically listed all things fixable from cheapest to most expensive. I should point out, that you're relying on a compression tester... make sure that it's actually working. I've read horror stories from using a bad compression tester. Good luck and I hope this is good advice.
