Here is the original post


I have 94 Escort LX 1.9L

While comming off the free way my car started missing. My friend and I
compression tested it and there was 0 compression on the 4th cylinder.
I changed the Plugs and wires and the 4th plug was coated in oil.
Everything else is fine and where it should be. Its not burning oil
or anything. Someone told me something about there being problems
with the lifters sticking. So I'm pretty sure I will have to replace
the head. But I was wondering if using a thinner oil would help the
lifters from sticking. Or if the problem could be something else.
Please help.
