2006 Ford Ranger 3.0 6 cylinder compression leak.
I just purchased a 2006 Ford Ranger with a 3.0 6 cylinder. It has 73K I was told it had a misfire in cylinder six. I purchased it for a good price and have a about $1000 to put in to the truck. I just found out that cylinder 6 has a compression leak. I don’t know the readings yet(compression numbers). After driving it a few days it has a lot of power, it idols relatively smooth and it seems to have a lot of power. It’s not using or leaking any fluids. I’m just not sure if I feel comfortable driving this truck knowing that it has a compression leak. Do you have any suggestions? I have some experience fixing cars but I don’t feel comfortable changing heads or engines. I do have a friend that works cheap.
