ff85f19c Compression check


If the engine works badly or with interruptions, inspect a compression. Regular carrying out this check will allow you to prevent emergence of malfunctions in advance.

For carrying out check the tester intended for diesel engines is required. Connect a tester to an adapter and twist an adapter in an opening of a candle of heating or in an injector opening.

The engine should be warmed up, the accumulator is charged, candles and injectors are unscrewed, wires of the locking valve and the fuel block are disconnected.

Pressure in all cylinders should be identical. The difference more than in 0,5 bar between any two cylinders means malfunction. In the serviceable engine pressure should accrue quickly. The small pressure of the first step which is gradually raising at the subsequent steps, specifies that piston rings are worn-out. Small pressure of the first step which does not accrue at the subsequent steps, indicates leak in valves or on the punched laying of a head. Deposits on the lower parts of valves can become the reason of a low compression also. Low pressure in two next cylinders practically always means that between them head laying is punched.

If at carrying out check you have difficulties, address to experts.
