Default Re: Sticky piston rings

Remove the plugs and add auto trans fluid in equal parts to the cylinders you want to unstick. You need to use enough to cover the piston. Add more again in a couple of days. Drain the oil after a week or so and see if that doesn't free them up. A compression check before starting can tell a bunch. Take a reading and then add some oil and take another, if there is change it usually is leaking past the rings.
