Well, I was driving home from work last night. Went to accelerate and got nothing. Engine starting sputtering and I eventually limped into a parking lot. Tossed on the Diablo and came up with code P2172... MAP Sensor or vacuum leak. I had it towed to a local shop to have them take a look. They said that there is no compression in cylinder 3 which means something is wrong with the valves, piston, combination, etc. I have 220k miles on her, so I am at the point of upgrading anyways. This has just forced my hand. I now have the Jeep sitting in my driveway and I'm not really sure what to do with it. For being 10 years old with this many miles, it's in pretty damn good shape. Anyone think it is worth trying to pull off the head and see what i find? Or better to just try and sell AS IS and get what i can and walk away?
