what's does it mean when I get reading no compression on P3?

Asked by Jul 17, 2017 at 01:18 PM about the 2001 Dodge Dakota

Question type: General

I have a 2001 Dodge Dakota, and have changed fuel injector, plugs and
wires but mechanic says he can't get compression on P3 when he does a
reading test. The truck runs ok but sometimes bogs down during shifting time
on take off.

If you have no compression on one cylinder your truck will run poorly. If it is a burned valve the head could be rebuilt but if it is a piston or the rings you will need to rebuild the engine,
