Many people at work, often comment about how amazing my wheels are: yes, it’s a great antique bicycle. However, I actually have a car and it’s a POS. Hence today, I’m going to show you how you too, can determine if your car is a complete and total POS.
Buy a compression tester.
Remove all the spark plugs and examine them. (turn off fuel too)
If you have any that look really messed up, then that’s the first sign, that your car is a POS.
For example, here is a spark plug covered in oil. This means, this engine, is leaking, like my roomate’s prego cat.
Hook up the compression tester to each cylinder, and crank the engine. Record the compression.
Yes! The compression looks ok since the highest compression is 200 psi and the lowest is around 180 psi which fits within the 10% variance allowed between any two cylinders. So time to break out the orange plastidip!
Put a pony figurine on the back board for +24 horsepower.
In conclusion, my mustang is not a complete and total POS.
