What did the other cylinders test at? If they were much higher, then I would say you have a bad piston ring on the #1 cylinder. Check out what this guy says on the first post....http://www.cobaltss.net/forums/2-0l-lnf- performance-tech-153/gm-compression-specs-273564/

You have a stuck open or burned valve. Time for a valve job. HTH. -Jim
