- Testing the compression in all the cylinders at crankingspeed. All plugs are removed, the compression gauge placed in one plug hole, the throttlecracked wide open and the engine cranked until the gauge no longer climbs. The compression check is a good way in which to determine the condition of the valves, rings, and cylinders.
