About a month ago, on a hill that I have been parking on for about 6 months, my truck started to roll back on me when it was left in first gear. I knew my clutch was due for a change so I had it changed, but my truck is still rolling backwards. I checked my engine compression and it was 160 psi across all four cylinders. And I know I could just pull the handbrake and it won't roll but I am just wondering if there is anything else that might need looking at.

Anyone have any idea what else could be allowing it to slowly roll back?

Thanks

Either replace the muffler bearings or use your "handbrake".

You put on larger tires? That would result in a larger torque arm and make it easier for the hill to cuase the tires to turn due to the weight of the truck. Use your ebrake everytime you park your truck anyhow.

sounds normal to me. your compression must have been just a tad higher before not to roll. nothing to worry about, you should not depend on the motot comp in place of a ebrake.

if the truck is pointed down hill put it in first, if its bed is pointed down hill put it in reverse. cause you can turn a motor backwards all day long. if you are still having a prob put the sucker in 4-low.
