Help,anyone ever had a stuck valve on a northstar?My 94 Eldo has adirty miss and I found that the #5 cyl. has only 60lb. of comp.
It doesn't apear to be a head gasket problem so I'm going to try to get the valve cover off and have a look...any suggestions????:madtalkin

Maybe you have a bad head gasket. Guys on the forum talk about coolant fouling the plug.

Fuel injectors can stick. There are procedures for cleaning with injector cleaner under pressure at the fuel rail...or replacing the injector. But an injector won't fix that 60 psi compression.
