this question is in parts.
my cluch went last week, since then the engine is running badly, i did a compression test which came back as 1= 27 bar.2=22bar.3=19bar. 4=23bars. does that indicate poor compression. before all this she was running fine. i am about to have the injectors tested or buy some new ones, but i am also suspecting valve oil seals. the van has done 147500 miles, so before i go forward am i looking at piston rings or top engine job,or could the problem just be the injectors. there is too much oil in the sump, so this could be adding to the soot problem and maybe the running.


thanks

If there is far too much oil in engine it will cause back pressure and can knack engine .

Drain some oil from sump until correct level is showing. Then maybe try compression test again when smoke has cleared.

Check battery earth strap and earth strap from engine / gearbox to body .Also drain oil to correct level and then try running to clear out engine .

does anyone suspect one or more dodgy injectors as a cause for these problems, i accept the oil is too full, but would it be a fair statement to say that the injectors are what starts the igintion. if they are not spraying properly this would cause my issues.

it now transpires that one of the lugs on the flywheel have broken off, that is why the engine is running badly as it cant detect the TDC sensor. no one picked up on this possible defect.
