Yup, I figured they were compression, as leakdown would be expressed as a percentage. On a leakdown test, it's important the tech knows what he's doing also, so he can evaluate where exactly the problem lies. You want to know where your compression is going if you're losing it.

Good Luck,


Im pretty sure this guy had no idea of what he was doing. Those were compression numbers by the way. Im going to get a real "leak down" test done by a professional.I agree these numbers are horrible. Hopefully I will get better results with the leak down. Thanks
