check the timming belt. it sounds like you have broken the timming belt remove the belt cover and make sure that the camshafts are turning when you are cranking the engine, if the belt has broken you will most likly have to remove the cylinder head and replace all the valves, when this engine brakes the timming belt the valves will hit the top of the pistons and bend the valves...good luck
If it feels like the whole car (dash & steering wheel area) is shaking at idle in drive then it is often a bad engine mount causing this vibration throughout the car. An actual isolated rattling noise from under the car could be the catyalitic converter if it sounds like its in the exhaust system.
When replacing head gasket you had to disconnect and move spark plug wires and coil wire.Sounds to me if it ran for a little while then died out look for a burned wire by exhaust manifold.Something must of shorted out.Thats why it ran a little while and died.
There are dsm forums in which you can get good help and support for this. I believe stock they can handle 10-13 psi. Before I would increase the boost to anything over that I would replace the internals with performance parts and change out all of the studs( head, exhaust, and intake) with ARP performance studs and also change the gasket set to a high performance set to. Also you will have to get a programmer to change how the cpu is running the engine for the increase in fuel. There is alot involved when tuning a car and one wrong move you can kiss that motor goodbye.This would be a good place to start learning the in's and out's of tuning your specific car..........http://www.dsmtuners.com/forums/
also get a balance shaft eliminator kit it will save your some trouble and free up a couple of horses.
1. Worn or broken rings on that cylinder
2. Valve guides or seals worn on that cylinder
3. To fix the rings you will have to remove the head and sump (Remove the motor from the car if you cannot remove the sump with it in the car)
4. Yes it will make your car run bad
YOU NEED TOOLS AND A HAYNES REPAIR MANAUL TO SHOW AND TELL YOU HOW HEADS ARE REMOVE.YOU NEED A STRAIGHT EDGE LIKE FRAMING SQUARE AND FEELER GAUGE TO DECK THE THE HEAD TO CHECK FOR WARPAGE.OR THE MACHINE SHOP CAN CHECK WARPAGE ON HEAD.SEE IF REPLACED HEAD GASKET AND DONT CHECK WARPAGE WHICH SHOULD NOT EXCEED 0.004 INCH.IF SO YOUR NEW HEAD GASKET WILL LEAK ALSO.
Yes the oil can cause the car to lose spark, the oil leak could be caused by the valve cover gaskets around the spark openings, but 9 times out of 10 it is the spark plug tube "O" rings. The top of the valve train comes off of the head, the "O" rings are between the two halves, that will fix the oil leak.
