SO my mechanic has found out that there is zero compression in the #5 cylinder. he says the head is gonna have to come off. QUESTIONS

what could have casued this?

I got 36781 miles on her, think I can get GM to honor the warranty?

how much is this gonne be to fix?

are there any modifications I should consider as long as the head is going to be off?

will I need a new head on that side?

Any other input?

Sorry to hear about your car. A friend of mine just had the same thing happen in #2. Found a busted ring land and had almost zero compression. His car was still drivable though. It's costing him around 3K to have the motor refurbished.

I really hate these stories of blown rings and zero compression and stuff. I just bought my 02Z with 21k miles and no warranty.

When I bought this car, everyone told me not to worry, these engines and very reliable, and can tuff it out. I think I might buy an extended warranty now on powertrain and transmission.
