My poor SVT

So I had a bad wheel bearing, brought it to ford, got home to a call saying our mechanics went to drive your car and couldnt get it started. We finally did get it started and we couldnt get it running over 15 mph. I just drove it an hour to the dealership with absolutely no problem. They tell me they are running diagnostics and will get back to me. :(

Called back and informed me that cylinder 1 has ZERO compression.

Waiting on my options right now. I have an aftermarket warranty plan so I might buy all new insides and rebuild if thats what they are going to say.

Such a bad feeling in my gut. Life is going downhill.

I have to wait until tomorrow now for more information.

And now my procharger build is on hold :(:(

Yea that does suck. I was wondering how your build was going. Hopefully everything works out in your favor.

HHUUMMM... I would be pretty mad. Was your car losing power lately? Do you know how old your mechanic was?

No the car was running absolutely fine, the only thing i didnt like was it sounded like it had a miss under 1500 rpm.
