Was the engine cold when you did the first compression check?

If so then there's the "problem", step #1 in performing a compression test is:

1. Make sure the oil in the crankcase is of the correct viscosity and at the correct level and that the battery is correctly charged. Operate the vehicle until the engine is at normal operating temperature. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, then remove all the spark plugs.

Yes the engine was warm i had just came home from work from a 30 min drive and i let it sit for like 30 mins before it was cool enough to touch. the temp gauge was still between the O and the R.

IDK, letting it sit for 30 minutes may have influenced the results--in any event it seems there is no problem now, check it again in 3-4 months and see what you get...

idk either very strange. and the oil viscosity had to be good i just chaged the oil thursday with mobil 1 10w-30.

Another thing that i noticed is this morning when i started it i never heard it ticking. I even had my longest screwdriver out so i could hold up against the heads and valve covers to see what i could hear and it didnt make any noise which is strage because i have been driving it everyday for the last 2 months and it always ticks when you first start it.

ethier way im just gonna keep driving it and check it out every once in awhile and see what happens.

thanks for the help
