How would you feel about flying in a jet airline with four engines , but, only three functioning?


You're going to ruin your engine...


possibly down to low compression, my advice to you is to find a specialist qualified technician to diagnose your automobiles malfunctioning motor

Sounds like the two cylinders are next to each other. My first thought is a blown head gasket. Compression test these two cylinders. If both test very low that's what it is. The head gasket has blown between the two cylinders. HTH. -Jim
