Low Compression on 95 5.2


Jeep was running rough, took to local mechanic and told me needed engine rebuild, compression test was 1-125, 3-110, 5-70, 7-90, did not perform on right side. Question is since I just moved before finding this out, do you think it will make a 300 mile 4 1/2 drive. Engine has 126,000, does burn a little oil.

That's the best answer anyone can give you. It could go in the first 5 miles, it could go in 2 months (unlikely).
