    Default No compression cylinder no4

    Hi, i just got myself a vectra sri 2.2 on 03 plate.

    i brought the car on monday, and having problems already, i know a little bit about cars so i done myself a compression test and have myself a problem with cylinder 4, there no compression...
    Due to the vectra being chains im not going to tackel this myself as i wont want to risk it...( did all valves and head on my old astra)

    Did you not test drive before you bought?

    When you say "no compression" do you mean it's completely non-existant or just pretty low.

    Knackered valve I'd have thought.

    If you're handy with the spanners you could strip the head, sort the problem and get a mechanic to do the chain and timing.

    Definitely sounds like a valve stuck open... Is the timing chain in good nick?

    I'm not too familiar with the 2.2 engines, but if they're anything like the 1.8 then I'd probably start by taking the camshaft cover off and seeing if anything is obviously out of place.
