: 05 STS V-8 Engine

My 05 just died out on me with 80k miles on it. Pepboys was the closest I could push it to. They ran the diagnostic and told me my cylinder 4 has no compression and said I am going to need to replace the engine. Has this happened to anyone? I am taking it to the dealer for a second opinion.

Definitely go for it. My suggestion would be to not tell the dealer that diagnosis from Pepboys; they might try to follow through with that for the money. Just say you don't know what the issue is.

This symptom is not one that is commonly reported by forum members. Find a pro. Good luck!
