SO I Finally bought a compression tester and did a compression tester on the van.

All but one cylinder has good compression.. one cylinder has zero compression!

I don't know how this could have happened! It's a low mileage engine..108k.. Did I cause this problem? Could a weak cylinder be the reason it had been throwing a knock sensor code??

Any suggestions what it could be? probably the rings?

Thanks in advance,

Any Advice is appreciated
It used to be the radio would be on then suddenly there was no sound from speakers. Sometimes a loud popping or distorted sound would come out then no sound at all. But it still showed the radio on and working fine. Now the radio will not even come on at all. I read it could be the amp. There was a TSB about no sound but radio on.
every time i shut off the engine, there is a "grrrrr" noise that only lasts 2 seconds. I was advised it may be the alternator???
It will go off when I hit about 20 MPH- is there a way to disable or adjust this?
