Base Engine Tests


To determine that an engine is mechanically sound, certain tests need to be performed to verify that the correct A/F mixture enters the engine, is compressed, ignited, burnt, and then discharged out of the exhaust system. These tests can be used to help determine the mechanical condition of the engine.

To diagnose an engine-related complaint, compare the results of the Compression, Cylinder Balance, Engine Cylinder Leakage (not included) and Engine Vacuum Tests.
