      97 960 Compression Test Range

      Hi all,

      My 960 has 300k on it and has the white stuff on the dipstick as well as oil showing up in the coolant reservoir so its looking like head gasket time.

      Before jumping into it I'm running a dry compression check and am seeing 210-225 psi across all cylinders (warm engine, wide open throttle and the fuel cut off). Are these numbers ok ? I'm using a cheap gauge that I bought and just want to be sure the numbers are believable.

      Thanks!

      I've decided to part with this car and its listed FS on the RWD Classified.
