Yes If you turn the headlights and AC on and the car stalls down, It has low compression. Due to Appex seal wear. This is caused by the engine not producing enough oil to the chamber's. In 1989 they said the car's were using to much oil so they reduced the amount going to the seals, this causes the problem. You may have to have new appex seals put in, or buy a new engine.
