Running on 3 cylinders
« on: May 02, 2019, 01:24:45 pm »
Hi everyone, my LADA is running on 3 cylinders and there seems to be spark. It is the last cylinder at the back of the engine. I am new to the LADAVERSE and am not sure how to fix this problem. Thanks  :)

If you are sure it has spark, it's compression related. It will be getting fuel as the others are running.
Do compression check. Make sure the battery is fully charged to crank engine for the test(s)
Advise your readings here. Then the group can assit further.
