There is def something wrong in that 3rd cylinder. I would get a leakdown test to confirm but some possibilities, non of which are good are:

bent rod
broken piston ringland

do you get any vibrations when you press the clutch in?

No there is no clutch pedal vibrations, the car runs great, no burning oil, still very strong pulls, i also am still getting great gas mileage as well... i have read in this thread the oil in plug hole test which i plan on doing tuesday... im hoping its a valve problem more than anything else

Late to the compression posting party, but here it is. 70,000 miles on '08 MS3, purchased new in May, 2008. Mods below. Drive it hard. Recently did the intake manifold valve cleaning (about two months ago). Full synthetic 5w-30 since first oil change. Altitude is 200 feet. Ambient temp was 92 degrees.

Did warm engine compression test last night out of curiosity. Forgot to pull the fuse on the injectors, so this is with some fuel being shot into the cylinders.

Facing engine left to right (passenger side to driver side)

#1 - 180
#2 - 180
#3 - 172
#4 - 180

I repeated #3 and got the same number. Have not done a leak down test, but I don't see 8 psi as a reason to be worried. It is something to watch and recheck. Original turbo. Never smoked. Did just have VVT and timing chain service done at dealer right before hitting 70,000. They did it free under warranty, even with my mods and no oil change records! I only flashed ECU back to stock for dealer service. Thought I'd get hit for $1200. I guess there may be some benefit from being 62 years old and not looking like the racer that i really am. lol.

@MSMS3 if you hold the gas to the floor while cranking, the injectors shut off.
Try it on your next startup.

^ Thanks! That is useful info. I intended to pull the fuse and just forgot. Will certainly follow your advice when I check compression again. I want to keep an eye on #3 and make sure it does not drop further in relation to the others.

Looks like time to source a new motor!
Do a leak down test to find the source of the loss in compression. Its possible you might not need a whole new engine.

Hold on are you doing a compression test or a leakdwn test?

Edit; re read post. The part about the compressor is what confused me.

In that case, have you done a leak down?

Edit; re read post. The part about the compressor is what confused me.

In that case, have you done a leak down?

Nowhere had a leakdown tester so have no way to do one yet. Both engines are on stands, not in car.

One tried with starter attached using a battery and got nothing for compression. I can look down spark plug hole on both and see that the valves stay open as cylinder comes up. This confuses me.

pull the oil fill cap and see if the timing chain is moving when you turn the motor over...if not the crank bolt/washer combo is fubared...turn the motor by hand not with a starter.

Timing chain is moving, valves are moving. Anyone ever check compression when engine is out of car?
I just got 30psi on cylinder 1.

I feel like given your situation, a leak down test would really be better.

never have...and to get an accurate compression or leakdown test the motor needs to be at operating temp which you cant duplicate with it out of the car. I wouldn't think it would be that low even stone cold. maybe 150 where warmed up it would be 180.

Very cool thread!

Here are my results. I did not pull all the spark plugs (did one at a time). I'll do it again with all plugs removed. Gotta nag my friend to let me get that snap on tester back !
