    Low compression at 43k!??!

    So I posted about have misfires a week ago. I got the verdict back, low compression on cylinders 1 and 3 (132 an 135 should be at least 142). They are doing a leak down to see what the problem is. Should I take this to the dealer? Is it a warranty issue ('03)?

    If you are still with in your warranty then they should cover it unless they can prove you did something to affect/damage your valves.
