Hi,

Just pulled all my spark plugs as the engine idle was rough and cylinder 2 spark plug is all black.

I will be testing the injectors. Does anyone know the resistance I should be getting on my multimeter and compression by cylinder?

I'm hoping it's not compression - That could be anything from a gasket to a cylinder ring issue ... costly issues especially if I continue running the car.

missing

Probably a stuck injector staying partially open.
But check the exhaust lash and it`s cam follower.
Change the plug, put a can of Seafoam Injector cleaner in a half full tank of gas and you might solve the issue without having to remove the injector...

Just replaced all spark plugs.
Car barely starts and dies. When it does start I have to give it some gas if not it dies.

Going to put back the original ones and see if I still have the same issue.

Guys I figured it out and it was really a stupid mistake. The coils wasn't clipped in properly. I probably moved it when i removed the air intake to get to cylinder #2.

Do you know what compression should be on each cilyndet?
