Closed throttle DOES make the resulting reading lower!!

Frankly, even-ish reading between cylinders is more saying "general wear" than a cracked ring (then one cylinder is dramatically different). Or head gasket failure - that's typically uneven pressures.

Looking at the original question: Oil lost.

1) Is there OIL in the ANTIFREEZE??
2) Cardboard under the car - Oil puddle anywhere??

50 years from now - how are we going to restore a "classic" microprocessor based modern car?? Alfas - 1980 Spider, 1987 Milano, 1976 Spider
