    I was wondering where the starter relay is or where I hook one of those buttons. I am more familiar with cars that have a relay on the fender like a ford.

    Well I performed the compression test and leak-down.
    The #3 cyl is dead. 20psi and no better with a bit of oil.
    leak-down is 100% leak in the exhaust. other cyls less than 5%leak.
    Needs a valve job or maybe a long block because of miles.
    Is it worth it to do a Valve job on 160k miles car?

    Do the math. Price remove/service/replace heads plus gasket set +/- new short block (with reflash?) vs. used engine one piece. Prices will vary.

    Anything that exceeds the cost of the car I'd not do. It's the stuff that's very costly but cheaper than a car that's a judgment call. Your call.
