It has lots of blue smoke! Plus this really puzzled me! Ran a compression check. While cranking the needle in gauge went up but wouldn't stay. I can't believe all the cylinders are 0 it runs to good!

    to change valve seals with on you will have to remove spark plugs and use compreesed air to hold up valve before changing seals I would recommend taking it to a shop that has the right tools for the job
