my younger bro has a 1.2 nova (carb) which recently started cutting out and not starting again! Now, its been on the drive for a few weeks and wont start at all. Its recently been FULLY serviced, so there should be no probs there, but he took it to our local garage the other day who did a compression test, and said it was down on cyl 1.
What exactley do you think could be the problem? Is the low compression on 1 the result of it not starting, because before it broke altogether it would still start and run- then cut out and not re-start at all.
Any help appreciated,or thoughts of things to check.
