Today I did a compression test and results are NOT GOOD!!!
-the left side of engine was fine(cylinders 2,4) at 160 lbs each
-but the right side, cylinder 1, was at 80 lbs and cylinder 3 at 165lbs, which is fine.
-I noticed the condition on the outside of the right side of the engine(cylinders 1,3) was a lot dirtier, like with oil and dirt, BUT the left side was clean as a whistle...I'm wondering if it might be the headgasket because I'm sure it couldn't be the rings yet nor valves. What do you all think it could be??? My car is burning oil too...during cold start-up and once warm you rev it a little, there is whitish-bluish smoke from the exhaust then it stops once it has warmed up. I would appreciate your help THANKS!!!
