Hi There, I have just bought ford falcon 2001 (LPG only). when I checked it via mechanic, he found two cylinder out of six got some low pressure problem. Therefore he advised me to change the engine or sell the car. I got it for 3100 and to repair it I mean to change the engine....it will cost me around 2500. Anyone have any suggestions ? or does anyone know any mechanic who can do it bit cheaper.

I wouldn't listen to the mechanic, his just trying to make money as we all do.

First things first, How bad where the compression tests on the 2 Cylinders? this could mean anything within the engine... from Cracked head, to Dropped Valves, etc.

Secondly, how many Km's has the car done?
