    On a 2003 pd engine (1.9 ARL on 104k mi) with compression on all 4 cylinders around the 280psi/ 19bar mark what starting characteristics would members expect to see?

    1. Never start, 2. lots of turnover but catch eventually, 3. difficult on cold engine but fine with warm, 4. No real problem or 5. other

    Any comments, or number, grateful received,

    Many thanks in advance

    PS No test! I'm just curious to know the starting characteristics of such an engine as mine been diagnosed with this compression but in my inexperienced opinion, starts better than I'd expect.
